When I said it was going to be simple,
I didn't mean THAT simple!
As Regular Readers quickly found out, Yankee Stadium (along with several other stadiums) offers online guides to sun and shade. That's a handy thing to remember.
But I want to up the ante just a little bit, and propose that we try to find a more general solution than that.
So let me rewrite the Challenge just a bit:
1. My brother has changed his mind, and now he's going to see a baseball game at the Red Wings baseball stadium in Rochester, New York on June 11th. The game starts at 1PM. Where can I get a seat that will be both near the field and in the shade for the whole game?
Here's the picture of the stadium where the Rochester Red Wings play. They're a minor league baseball team based in Rochester, New York. They play in the International League farm team for the Minnesota Twins. They play in Frontier Field, located in downtown Rochester. Founded in 1899, the Red Wings are the oldest continuously operating sports franchise in North America below the major league level.
To help you out, the field looks like this (see below), and is located at 43.1551745,-77.6196905 (lat, long).
(I did a quick search and didn't find an online guide to sun / shade and seats at this particular place.)
So can you help me figure this out? The ideal solution could take any stadium and predict where the sun and shadows will be at 1PM on June 11.
