Yesterday, your SportsNewser editor took a trip down to New York’s Greenwich Village to tour Major League Baseball’s “MLB Fan Cave.”
Back in March we covered the announcement of MLB’s “Dream Job” winner, Mike O’Hara, who would watch every minute of every game from the cave, and would also star in a web series produced by Endemol USA. We spoke to O’Hara, who had a rare afternoon off, with all of the day’s games slated for the evening.
The Fan Cave is built in the old Tower Records space in the Village, a sprawling, three-story space filled to the bring with baseball art and memorabilia.
O’Hara and his “wing man,” Ryan Wagner, typically watch all the games in a comfortable sitting area, with 15 Sony HDTV’s that can tune into every game being played. When they aren’t watching games, there is is also a bar stocked with Pepsi and Budweiser (who sponsor the cave, Natch) a videogame setup, and a gaming area. Below is the MLB-branded pool table with Red Sox balls, as a Yankees cap wearing Jay-Z smiles in the background.
