In case you haven’t had enough baseball, John Cohrs of Central Indiana Hardware sent me this photo of the bullpen door from last night’s World Series game (nice hardware!).  I can just imagine the scene…“HOLD ON GUYS!  I HAVE TO TAKE A PHOTO FOR LORI!”  🙂

It turns out that bullpen doors have problems just like the rest of the doors we see every day, but the mishaps are more likely to be caught on camera…

Let’s all watch Braves righty Chris Withrow struggle valiantly against the Citi Field bullpen door – Major League Baseball

And here’s an oldie but a goodie from 1989:

    I wonder if this is an exterior application? With the chain-link gate, it probably is (is the 98-Series device OK to use outdoors??)

      Hi Sean –

      I have used the 98/99 series on exterior applications, but I prefer 55 or 88 series. With anything sports-related though…I would use a touchpad device rather than a crossbar device. Locker rooms, hockey rinks, etc., get a lot of abuse and often don’t get a lot of maintenance, so the touchpad devices will hold up better. When using a touchpad device on the exterior, I specify weep holes in the mechanism case, and the internal parts should be very well lubricated to prevent corrosion.

    I don’t recall seeing those drop plates in the catalog. Those are some serious plates.

    I love the sign at the bottom… “Help is on the Way”…The Dodgers probably needed it. 😉
