When nobody was looking, a new front opened on the war on terror — Yankee Stadium.
The Yankees have banned sunblock, the New York Post reported.
Four weeks ago, Stadium officials decided that sunscreen of all sizes and varieties would not be permitted, a security supervisor told The Post before last night’s game.
“There have been a lot of complaints,” he said. “We tell them to apply once and then throw it out.”
For fans who bring babies or young children to cheer on the home team, the guard had suggested they “beg” to take the sunblock in.
Seeing the giant bag full of confiscated sunscreen Saturday, one steaming Yankee fan asked whether he could take one of the tubes and apply it before heading into the park.
“Absolutely not,” the guard told him. “What if you get a rash? You might sue the Yankees
But a few days ago, after the howling protests, the Yankees relented … to a point. Team spokesman Jason Zillo said the Yankees will still not allow sunscreen in aerosol cans in the stadium.
