Yankee Stadium class being taught at Rutgers

A research seminar called "Yankee Stadium" is being taught to 20 freshmen at Rutgers this year, according to Vincent M. Mallozzi of the Times.

Theresa M. Collins, a history professor at Rutgers for 17 years, teaches the one-credit course at the Livingston campus in Piscataway, N.J. With 220 applicants, she said, Yankee Stadium was the most requested first-year research seminar this fall.

“The purpose of this course is to open up the minds of these students to the joys of research, especially in places you wouldn’t normally think of it — like Yankee Stadium,” she said. “We often discuss the potential for certain research projects related to the Stadium, which allows the students an opportunity to maximize their sense of learning in this field.”
This is pretty cool. I wish my school had something like that.

What would you do if you didn't get an A+ in that class?

LOL. Yeah, we'd all have to get an A+ in that class or lose our fan status.
