— Days Without Shea —

The new ESPN magazine has a nice little item entitled "Oral History: Shea Stadium."

During last weekend's final series at Shea for the Braves, Cox chatted up some of his favorite memories and obscure facts about our favorite stadium. Among the highlights:

FACT: The dugouts afford some of the best views in baseball. "I love this dugout, It's a great place to watch a game," Cox said. "At the new ballparks, you can't see the game because they make the dugouts too big and you're sitting all the way back."

FACT: The air conditioner in the visitor's clubhouse is actually from the old Polo Grounds (from the old press room there). "It's one of the first things I found out when I got here," Cox said. It is also common knowledge around the stadium that when turned on full blast, it is almost cold enough to store raw meat.
