Here’s A Map Of Yankee Stadium, If It Were Located In Middle-Earth

Ah yes, when baseball and neo-maxi-zoom-dweebie-Tolkienism collide. All said, this is a piece of unmitigated genius. The brainchild of Dustin Parkes, the editor of baseball blog, Getting Blanked and illustrated by Miranda McGuire, “The Divisions of Yankees’ Earth” is chock-full of hobbity goodness. “Where The Gardener Roams” is funny. “Cano’s Landing”? Not too shabby. But for my money, “Burnett’s Ocean Of Tears” and “The Uneccessarilis Expensive Toll Bridge” are where it’s at. Well done to all who were involved.
