YORK, Pa. (AP) - A high school student warmed all 5,200 seats in a new minor league baseball stadium before its inaugural game.
It took Todd McCormick about three hours to sit in each seat of Sovereign Bank Stadium, the new home of the York Revolution, on Friday. That's about 29 seats per minute.
McCormick, 17, of Springfield Township, started at 11:50 a.m. in Row N in right field. He finished around 3 p.m., two hours before gates opened for the game against the Newark Bears.
"It'll hurt in the morning, but right now I don't feel anything," McCormick said in the middle of his quest. "The Revolution said this would serve two pur-poses: It'll bring luck and I'll get to check all of the chairs."
The Revolution ended up losing to the Bears, 7-4.
