The New York Yankees might look rock solid, but the concrete at their new stadium is drawing extra scrutiny amid a probe of construction companies.

 Concrete ramps at the $1.5 billion ballpark have been troubled by cracks this summer.

The New York Times reports that the team is trying to determine whether there was something wrong with the cement, or the ramps' installation or design. The Yankees host the Los Angeles Angels on Saturday night in Game 6 of the American League championship series.

The inquiry comes after the owners of a company involved in designing the concrete mix were indicted on charges that they either faked or failed to perform some required tests.

A team spokeswoman says the cracks are a cosmetic issue and the ramps are safe.


Man, CC Sabathia. The name that strikes fear into food.

CC Sabathia - the only one's safe are vegetables!

CC Sabathia soooo fat, New York had to install shock absorbers to the entire east coast.

CC Sabathia so fat when he was in Milwauke, he ate the entire sausage race.

The cracks are a cosmetic issue, eh?

CC Sabathia so fat, the Yankees are losing money because of all the cheeseburgers he eats before every game!

Joba is involved in this because his mom sold crack. Funny, huh? I think so. I mean, they arrest Joba's mom, but not the other 98% of New York?
