Was There a Porn Room at Shea Stadium?

Yesterday's Boston Globe story about the collapse of the 2011 Red Sox included the detail that, according to team sources, Josh Beckett, Jon Lester, and John Lackey had a habit of "drinking beer, eating fast-food fried chicken, and playing video games in the clubhouse during games while their teammates tried to salvage a once-promising season." And so the topic of what starting pitchers do during games on their off-days came up on Dan Patrick's radio show today during an interview with Al Leiter. At one point in the conversation, Patrick asked Leiter whether it was true that Shea Stadium used to have a porn room. And judging by Leiter's answer, it sure sounds like it did. In a related story, Hideki Matsui has just demanded a trade to the 1999 Mets.
