According to Apple’s latest commercial, “iPad goes anywhere” – anywhere, that is, except for Yankee Stadium.

Yahoo Sports confirmed with the stadium that the iPad falls under its “no laptops” security policy and patrons won’t be able to enter the ball field with one in their possession.

Spacekatgal tried to bring her iPad in to the Yankee/Red Sox game, only to be turned away at the gate. Undeterred, she did re-enter the stadium with her iPad in her jacket, but the ban exists all the same.

While you can reasonably conceive why someone would want to bring an iPad – or any electronic device aside from a cellphone into a ball game for that matter – the outright ban of such a device strikes us as odd, especially given that Wi-Fi is available throughout the complex.
