A comfortable Saturday afternoon for attending a baseball game in the Bronx. The Yankees were hosting the defending World Champion San Francisco Giants – while the New York Club is in “must win” mode during game #155 of their 2013 season…fighting to somehow attain a post-season berth (via the wildcard). Also, it’s a giveaway day at Yankee Stadium where guests 14 and younger were to receive a Limited-Edition TY® Beanie Buddy® named “Closer” in honor of Mariano Rivera presented by DKNY.
How many people were there? According to the Yankees, there were 42,420 attending the game.
According to the view from my seats, they most have all been there late and left early…
See how it looked in the first inning:
And, here’s how it looked in the ninth inning:
For the record, I really didn’t see a lot of people coming late and leaving early…
Am I the only seeing a lot of empty blue seats out there today? Think Yankees COO Lonn Trost was checking them out too?
