Watch Game Three in the Bronx

From Alden Gonzalez:
The Yankees announced on Sunday that they will open the Stadium Field Level and Great Hall to the public to watch the Yankees face the Angels in Anaheim as New York tries to take a commanding 3-0 lead in the ALCS.

"We wanted to provide a place for our fans to come together to cheer for our team, even if the game itself is taking place across the country," Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner said in a news release. "This is a way of saying 'Thank you' for their continued support."

Turnstiles between Gates 4 and 6 will open at 3:30 p.m. ET for the 4:13 p.m. game -- broadcast on FOX -- and fans can watch it in the Great Hall or in the open sections of the Field Level. Food and concession stands, as well as NYY Steak and Hard Rock Café, will be open and available to fans.
I think this a great idea. Back in '99, the Knicks did the same thing when the Knicks had that great run to the NBA Finals. I went to MSG to watch game 1 of the the series. They lowered the jumbotron down to the court and a few thousand fans sat and cheered as if we were at the game in San Antonio. Besides the Knicks losing the game it was fun.
