The World Series is scheduled to begin in Cleveland tonight

Yankee Stadium will be undergoing changes next year.

From the NY Daily News (edited down):

….adding seven new social gathering spaces as well as additional food and beverage areas. Construction will begin this week with the anticipated debut coming prior to the start of the 2017 season.

Among the enhancements will be the Sunrun Kids Clubhouse, the first-ever children’s zone at the ballpark. Shaped like a mini-baseball field with a soft, artificial surface, the 2,850-square-foot area will be located on the 300 level in right field, outfitted with oversized baseballs, bases and baseball cards as well as a six-foot-high replica World Series trophy.

The team is also adding a MasterCard Batter’s Eye Deck located on the 200 level in center field, Bullpen Landings on the 100 level in left and right field, an AT&T Sports Lounge featuring DirecTV service in Section 134 and Budweiser Party Decks in Sections 311 and 328 featuring shaded stand-alone bar areas.

As a result of the enhancements, the Yankees are removing just under 2,100 seats, including 1,100 obstructed-view bleacher seats and approximately 600 Terrace level seats.

According to the team, once the enhancements are complete, more than 200,000 additional tickets priced $15 or less will be made available for the 2017 regular season.

Yankee Stadium Frieze

Yankees’ prospects Gleyber Torres and Miguel Andujar continue to hit in the Arizona Fall League.

Scottsdale lost 4-3 on Friday, but most of their offense revolved around these two.

Torres, who played 2B (he’s been switching between SS and 2B) was 2 for 4 and scored a run. So far, he’s hitting .429 and is probably the youngest player in the league at 19.He doesn’t turn 20 until December 13.The Yanks got him from the Cubs in the Chapman deal.

3B Andujar was 3 for 3 with a walk and drove in 2 runs. He did make an error. He’s hitting .391.

Tyler Wade, a SS getting OF reps to make him more versatile (especially with Torres and Jorge Mateo in the system) went 0 for 3, struck out once, but drew two walks and scored twice. He’s been struggling at .071.

Pitcher J.P. Feyereisen pitched one scoreless inning, giving up no hits or walks, and struck out one. His ERA so far down there is 7.20.

Scottsdale is 3-7.
