Evel Knievel jumping at Wembley Stadium in 1975. I remember watching this as a kid and being horrified when he crashed upon landing. Every kid, including me, on our estate wanted to be him and we set up loads of ramps in the streets to jump over on our rusty push-irons

Doubtful. The only way that layout would have worked would have been at OYS because the foul territory was so narrow. NYS is completely different in that sense.

If they have it going from foul line to foul line instead of home plate to center line it can fit in any MLB stadium.

True, but that layout would keep the legends seats as the ones with the best view, which would allow them to charge more for them. The best bet is to have center ice line up with 2nd base like at fenway and wrigley, as most of the seats in the stadium are pointed at second.

Commandant, you're a great user on this site, but I just don't understand the hate. You have to face the fact that YS is one of the premier stadiums in the country (as were it's predecessors) and has served many roles throughout history, from baseball stadium, football stadium, papal chappel, just about anything you can think of. Thats one of the reasons I've brought it up here, beacuse it is thought of most often as a baseball stadium (rightfully so) but it has served many roles. It's going to be a topic of discussion no matter how much you don't want to hear about it.

Although fairly common throughout the world our new rectangular stadium is becoming a familiar sight on Melbourne Australia's Skyline.
