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.
