NEW YORK – New York City Buildings Department engineers say the ramps at Yankee Stadium are sound in spite of large cracks in the cement.
Buildings Commissioner Robert Limandri said Saturday that engineers determined that the cracks do not affect the structural stability of the ramps at the $1.5 billion ballpark.
The New York Times reported the team was trying to decide whether there was something wrong with the cement, the installation or the design of the ramps.
The inquiry came after the owners of a company involved in designing the concrete mix were accused of either faking or failing to perform some required tests.
A team spokeswoman says the cracks are a cosmetic issue.
Game 6 of the AL championship series between the Yankees and Angels was rained out.
