New Yankee Stadium to be antimicrobial

Apparently most of new Yankee Stadium will be koodie-free:

The New York Yankees announced Wednesday the new Yankee Stadium will become the first antimicrobial facility in Major League Baseball.

The system is a comprehensive process that kills illness-causing microorganisms, and continually inhibits the growth of bacteria, mold and fungi on any surface for up to three years, officials said.

Areas of the stadium to be treated include the home and visiting club houses, locker rooms, training rooms, dugouts, showers, managers and coaches offices, weight-training areas and family lounge. Additionally, the team’s washable fabrics will be treated with FabricAid, Behar said.

The SportsAide 1000 system is used by more than 1,200 high schools and pro franchises nationwide for several reasons, but most importantly because the water-based antimicrobial fights a wide array of microbial growth, said Craig Andrews, chief executive officer of CSG.

No word yet on if the fans will benefit from the same antimicrobial treatment in the public areas.

Well that’s convenient now isn’t it? The million dollar athletes don’t have to worry about bacteria, mold and fungi, but the poor bastards in Section 128, Row F will be just as exposed to germs as ever. Awesome.
