From Pete Abe’s mailbag:
“..we go to probably a dozen games a season and are perfectly fine with our bleacher seats. We also liked to try to get player autographs and balls during batting practice. This season at Yankee Stadium, they’re opening the gates three hours in advance of game time. Sounds great, or so you’d think. The problem is that security won’t let anyone down to the field level unless they have a ticket in that section.
Out of all the words that come to mind, “myopic” is kindest.
