• Just Got My Relo Package From The Yankees

    Posted by on November 7th, 2008 · Comments (7)

    The good news: My seats, which were $75 per seat in 2008, will remain $75 per seat in 2009.

    The I-dunno news: How fair was the relo?

    In the old/current Stadium, my seats were in Section 15 of the Loge – which was an MVP Box on the first base side – close to 1B on the field.

    In the new Stadium, they’ve put me in Section 213 of the Main Level. From what they’ve sent me, it looks like these seats are close to 1B – but, as the relo notice reads, it’s a “general idea” because the seat map is “not drawn to scale.”

    But, I guess it could be worse…right?

    The money? Leave it to the cash-strapped Yankees…they want a deposit on the seats within the week…or else I lose the seats.

      The Yankees can be, and are ruthless businesspeople.

      Do you have a complete season package? I have the former plan F (the Friday games), and haven’t even gotten a call yet that they rec’d the questionnaire. They’re probably going in order (plan A, plan B etc), but still… I should call them on Monday and find out what’s going on.

      Yes, I have the 81-game package.

      thats the 3D seat selector option on the website that allows you to take an awesome look at where your seats will be, and the view you’ll have from your seats.

      looks like you’re right behind 1B, on the edge of the IF/OF grass. great seats, great view.

      Thanks. FWIW, I was playing around with that this AM too. Cool tool. And, I’m very interested in seeing how close it comes to the real view…when I actually get to use the seats.
