Cracked ramps at Yankee Stadium draw scrutiny

BY foxsports • October 24, 2009

The New York Yankees might look rock solid, but the concrete at their new stadium is drawing extra scrutiny amid a probe of construction companies. Concrete ramps at the $1.5 billion ballpark have been troubled by cracks this summer. The New York Times reports that the team is trying to determine whether there was something wrong with the cement, or the installation and design of the ramps. The Yankees host the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday night in Game 6 of the American League championship series. The inquiry comes after the owners of a company involved in designing the concrete mix were indicted on charges that they either faked or failed to perform some required tests. A team spokeswoman says the cracks are a cosmetic issue and the ramps are safe. --- Information from: The New York Times,
