Army at Yankee Stadium?

From Sal Interdonato's blog, in reference to the announced date at YS between Army and Notre Dame:

Also, I've heard Rutgers and Boston College could be future Army opponents at Yankee Stadium in 2011, 2012 or 2013.

The AP adds:

The New York Yankees called a news conference for Monday. Army is expected to play more games in the future at the $1.5 billion baseball stadium, with Rutgers and possibly Syracuse involved, another person familiar with the scheduling told the AP on condition of anonymity.

I oppose giving Army road dates in the future on a home and "home" basis, but playing games in New York City would soften the blow. West Point has a great atmosphere, but this would take things to a whole new level. Still, finding quality opponents should trump other factors.
