Use this space to describe your geocache location, container, and how it's hidden to your reviewer. If you've made changes, tell the reviewer what changes you made.

This cache has been archived.

New York Admin: I regret to report that the cache owner has not responded to the prior note about this disabled cache. I am archiving it to keep it from continually showing up in search lists, and to prevent it from blocking other cache placements. If you wish to repair/replace the cache sometime in the near future just contact us (by email), and assuming it meets the current guidelines, your contact information is correct and you have a maintenance plan in place I'll be happy to unarchive it.

How Geocaching Works

Please note Use of services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer.

Geocache Description:

Listed coordinates are for New York City, Central Park, Baseball fields, left field or right field, depending on what position you like to play. But the cache is not at the listed coordinates. Solve the puzzle to find the coordinates of the cache.

What do Geocaching and Baseball have in common? Zero, I say. What, you say, what about "Number of finds and RBIs"; "Cache find rate and ERA"; "DNFs and Errors"; "FTFs and Home Runs"; "Caches hidden and Number of Starts"; "Micro Cache/Full size cache ratio and Ground ball/Fly ball ratio"? I don't give a darn about stats, I say. Today I just want to go for a nice leisurely walk around the bases and maybe find some tupperware. Because the fun of winning a baseball game or finding a geocache is in how you go about getting to your goal. What is the use of adding another number to your stats if all you did was drive to another parking lot?

Why keep hiding the same lamp post cache? Who can find the cache the quickest without playing different positions? I don't know, probably a better geocacher or baseball player than I. Because there are relatively few caches in NYC, try to savor each new cache, like a slow baseball game on a hot summer day. I don't give a darn how long it takes to find a cache as long as we have a good laugh telling the story when we get home. Today I'll stash a small container in the park so you will know what I was getting at. Tomorrow I'll smile while reading your logs.
