View Full Version : Take me out to the ballgame

This past Sunday, a bunch of us went to the Yankees Old Timers' Day celebration and Yankees-White Sox game at Yankee Stadium. The Yankees are the only MLB team that still hosts this great celebration. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Old-Timers'_Day) To be able to see so many legends on the field at one time is an amazing thing for a fan of the game to see. The game was sold out, and it was HOT in the stadium (100+), but I was prepared because I'd brought my Synapse! In the old Yankee Stadium, you were not allowed to bring in any kind of bag, but the new stadium allows for a bag up to 16"x16"x8". The Synapse was a perfect choice. You are also allowed to bring in water, in up to 1-L size sealed plastic bottles.

In my Synapse, I had packed 3 bottles of water, binoculars, my Canon G12, iphone, hat, sunblock, mini first aid kit (in a medium Iberian Dyneema pouch, of course), and keys. There was still plenty of room left inside.


The stadium looked great (as always), and the the game was a good one, with the Yankees winning 4-2. The earlier Old Timers' game had the Clippers beating the Bombers 6-2.


And I got to watch one of my favorite players, the always classy, Number 2, Derek Jeter (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Derek_jeter).


Other than the absolutely awful heat, which totally wiped me out for another day, it was a fun day made easier by carrying my Synapse!
