YANKS MAKE ANOTHER CUT: GERMS

Yankees Become First MLB Team to Integrate Antimicrobial System

From News Blaze.com:

CSG, in conjunction with the New York Yankees, today announced the new Yankee Stadium will become the first facility in Major League Baseball (MLB) to be treated with the Sports Antimicrobial System(TM) (SAS).


Comprised of several leading-edge and highly advanced products, the SAS is a comprehensive process that kills illness-causing microorganisms and continually inhibits the growth of bacteria, mold and fungi on any surface for up to three years.


Areas of Yankee Stadium set to be treated with the SAS include the home and visiting club houses, locker rooms, training rooms, dugouts, showers, managers and coaches offices, weight training areas, and family lounge. Additionally, the Team's washable fabrics will be treated with FabricAide(R).


"When applied through the wash, FabricAide will continually inhibit the growth of a wide array of bacteria, mold and fungi on any fabric or textile. Defined by its durability, FabricAide's unmatched antimicrobial effectiveness will last a minimum of 30 washes before another application is needed," said Craig Andrews, Chief Executive Officer, CSG. "Integrating the Sports Antimicrobial System and its family of products into Yankee Stadium evidences just how committed the Yankees are to being innovators in the world of professional sports."

Its a gimmick, Microban in another application. The FDA puts no stock in either Microban or the SAS product as an antimicrobial..Attempts to get registration for both have been continually denied due to a lack of substanitive supporting data.

Any hard surface continually cleaned and kept free from moisture will prevent microbiological growth.

Both products are just gimmicks with no real benefit other then psychological.
