Yahoo Sports confirmed with the stadium that the iPad falls under its "no laptops" security policy and patrons won't be able to enter the ball field with one in their possession."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/at/auto/1274743173.usr105634.jpg" style="border: 1px solid #d2d2bb;" /></p><p>It seems like this fan wants the Yankees to revamp their <a href="http://newyork.yankees.mlb.com/nyy/ballpark/security.jsp" target="_blank">laptop policy</a>. But then again, why would you want to bring one to any baseball game, seems like it would be tempting fate to bring it, what with all the beer and mustard flying around. If I wanted to keep up on other scores I'd just use my iPhone. The person that was refused entry (<a href="http://boards.ign.com/mac_general_board/b5146/192099313/p1/" target="_blank">she snuck it in under her jacket anyway</a>) said she gets bored at baseball games so wanted something to do.&nbsp;</p>

You could also end up like Drew Barrymore's character in Fever Pitch as she uses her notebook while sitting behind the dugout.

They do have WiFi in the Stadium, which is kind of funny now that they ban laptops and iPads.

Aren't there some pretty rich baseball stats apps? I can see people using their iPad to look up stats on players, etc. I think it's a pretty stupid rule. :rolleyes:
