Football at the Stadium -- how will this work?

New, 25 comments

I asked it before, but I have to ask again in light of the recent news that Yankee Stadium will host a college football bowl game.

Look at the diagram of the Stadium and how the football field would be laid out. How is that going to work? The corners of the end zone on one side go through the dugouts and into the stands. On the other side they are in the bullpens.

If Yankee officials had planned to host football games there, which I think is fabulous, don't you think the Stadium should have been designed to accommodate it?

As it is, I am going to love to see how the Yankees pull this off without ripping out some luxury seats and creating more foul territory behind home plate.

Your thoughts?
