Yankee Stadium Gets a “Lord of the Rings” Makeover

The Divisions of Yankees' Earth (Baseball Prospectus/Miranda McGuire)

If I were to design a mock Yankee Stadium based on a sci-fi trilogy, I would think the Death Star would best fit the “Evil Empire” but on Friday, Baseball Prospectus published a new look for Yankee Stadium inspired by Middle Earth of JRR Tolkien’s “Lord of the Rings” series. It’s a creative rendering that both taps into the Yankees’ rich history and highlights what makes the 2011 squad special.

I personally love the addition of “The Narcissist’s Corner” in the realm of A-Rod. Also, the outrageously spacious left field is touted as “where the gardner roams.” Ironically, my trips to the “Haunted Forest” of Yankee Stadium have turned up some of the most interesting and personable Yankees fans I’ve encountered. There are no ghosts up there, from what I can tell.

What do you think of this take on the stadium? Can you think of a better sci-fi realm for Yankee Stadium? How about Fenway?
