THE Pope will visit a famous baseball ground on his US tour this week – but has been banned from taking the “Popemobile” on to the grass. Benedict XVI will celebrate mass for 60,000 at the Yankee Stadium in New York on Sunday, helped by 530 priests.
But organisers said the armour-plated car he uses on tours may only drive around the pitch – used by the New York Yankees team.
We hear the Pope plans to preach in his sermon against the scourge of pride, gluttony and jealousy while inside the ballpark.
We assume he’ll also cover matters outside of Curt Schilling and the Red Sox.
