>> More than 40 media members attending a one-hour press conference before Fan Day. There were 18 cameras, two of which were iPhones attached to tripods. The contingent was even bigger than usual because of Fan Day, which generally draws TV reporters to Memorial Stadium.
>> Construction and renovation everywhere. The East Stadium expansion project is in full swing, with two cranes hovering over one side of the stadium. In the West Stadium press box, workers are busy replacing the carpet, which forced reporters to conduct interviews in the hall opposite the press conference area.
