You can imagine how the thinking went when they mocked this thing up: Pinstripes? Check. Balustrade? Check. MLB logo? In there. NYC in the correct type? Yup. Date: Got it. Yes, this baby’s got all the elements required, but then again it doesn’t seem to express the sense of fun that (supposedly) defines the midsummer classic. The many fans who see the Yanks as a humorless corporate steamroller won’t be disuaded by this mark. The famous balustrade, once an integral part of the ballpark design, seems as tacked on here as it does at the Stadium, where it was reconstructed over the outfield retaining wall during the renovations of the early 1970s. Art imitates life. No word here, unfortunately, on who designed it. Anyway, it’s not unclassy, we’ll say that for it. It’ll make a nice patch. Sometimes it takes a while to get used to these things. Whatever the case, it sure beats the heck out of that London 2012 design.
