    Yankees Game 100116

    At the VERY LAST MINUTE, my son and I decided to go to the Yankees game yesterday. That’s us in the green box, above. (Click on the image to enlarge it.) It was our first time at the Stadium in a while. (We didn’t go at all last year.)

    He had nothing to do and was bored. It was Game 161 on a gray day. They were giving out bobble-heads. And, the seats were $25 each on StubHub. I figured it would be easy getting in and out, etc. So, why not?

    By the way, they “announced” the “paid” attendance at 33,222. Boy, that’s magic. Every section was at least half empty, or more, and there were a few sections that were totally empty. What did they have, like 13,000 who bought tickets and didn’t show? Really?

    Anyway, what I found interesting was that the seats we had, while nice, did not give you the whole view of the field. We could not see anything in right field. Basically, any ball hit towards right that was more than 200 feet, we had to guess what happened based on the crowd reaction or the runners on base.

    I think those tickets go for $50 each at full price. For that amount, shouldn’t you be able to see the whole field?

      I made it to the last game of the season. That’s all I have to say about that…

      Considering the AL requires teams to give 20% of the gate to the visiting team, I’d think there’s a heavy incentive not to over-report ticket sales by 13,000.
