iPads at Yankee Stadium? Hit the delete button

Can’t break away from your precious iPad for a few hours? Then

steer clear of Yankee Stadium.

The Bronx ballpark has a policy that prohibits fans from

bringing laptops inside, and iPads are included in that ban. The

team says it’s a security-and-safety issue.

Yankee Stadium is among the most tech-savvy parks in the majors.

Every player has a computer screen at his locker, in fact.

Major League Baseball says the issue of allowing iPads into

stadiums is a team-by-team decision. The Mets, Angels and Mariners

are among the clubs that permit the tablet computers.

An Apple commercial for iPad features the slogan that it “goes

anywhere.” Last week, a driver practicing for the Indianapolis 500

checked one while his car was idle.
