The Yankees finally released the schedule for the final year at Yankee Stadium and it is not good news for White Sox fans who want to visit Yankee Stadium for the last time.

The White Sox will not play there until the middle of September ( the second to last team to ever play a game in the old Stadium ) The Yankees plan big events for the final 10 game homestand. It will be a very hard ticket.

The delay on the release was typical Red Sox-Yankees nonsense. The Yankees finish the season in Boston and wanted to switch the dates with the Red Sox but Boston did not want the final series of the year to be in New York.

I've been there twice. The atmosphere of the crowd is great. Every single person is into the game, and they are loud as hell.

But as for the stadium, that place is an absolute dump. Walking down the hallways where the concessions were at made me feel like I was in someone's basement or some kind of poorly lit trail in a haunted house.

Maybe it's just as well that the Real Sox are there when they are. This way, Sox fans who want to experience the place for the last (or first) time can go earlier in the season and not get too worried about the game being played on the field unless it's a Tigers or Tribe game.

It's a fun place to see a game, especially if you like to talk a bunch of **** with unintelligent people (not saying they don't know a bit about baseball, but there's not much depth to them beyond that). They'll get loud, get in your face and threaten you. And each time they did I reminded them I was a fan of the Chicago White Sox, not the Tampa Bay Devil Rays, and gave it right back to them. It also helped that the only two time I've been there were probably two of the closest, most nerve-wracking games I have ever been to (see: early August 2005).
I love night games in full stadiums.

Sometimes you can find reasonable tickets on StubHub. Yankee Stadium tix in general seem to be pretty high though when compared to other ballparks.

What do you expect when you have a 200 million dollar payroll and a new stadium to help pay for. It is the same reason the red sox tickets are so high

Not cheap, but for a one time shot it'll be worth it.

They're New Yorkers. They act that way on the subway, in Central Park and while walking down the street ('whatcha lookin' at?")

save your money

If there's a really dirty dive bar with a notoriously filthy restroom near you, I suggest going there, sitting in the restroom for 3 hours and accepting the ridicule and anger of the barely functioning/brain dead losers who come in to relieve themselves. It's about the same as going to the Stadium. (Oh yeah, make sure it's a long and dangerous walk to your car, where you sit for another three hours waiting for traffic to disperse) Bring your IPOD and play New York, New York as you leave the restroom.

That is Yankee Stadium :tongue:

You nailed it. I take the bus over there in about twelve minutes flat and feel the same every time I leave. That being said, it's fun to watch the game on someone else's corporate dime. :D:

I never understood why they didn't widen the first tier concourse when they renovated back in the 70's. It is like the catacombs in Rome at the first level.

Well, looks like this is the year i'm going. Anybody know how many weekends both Boston and NYY play at home? I wanna hit both up with my dad so we can see it before they go down.

After closing Yankee Stadium for the regular season on Sept. 21,

I know they've made the playoffs 13 years in a row but nobody in baseball can count on making them again. This isn't the NBA or NHL.

Some friends and I want to make the journey to Yankee Stadium this year before it is all said and done. What hotels best meet a combo of my likes: proximity to the stadium (and other NYC landmarks), neighborhood, and price? I know the place is huge, but we're looking for any help we can get. I've never been to the Northeast above the age of 10. Thanks.

Walking down the hallways where the concessions were at made me feel like I was in someone's basement or some kind of poorly lit trail in a haunted house. I couldn't agree more. The concourse seemed like a dingy alleyway in a bad part of town. They desperately need a new facility, but I am glad I was able to see a game at the "house that Ruth built".

One thing to remember about New York, it has less hotels rooms than Chicago.

This is what my crew uses for Yankee Stadium

What? Is that actually true?

Yes it is....that is why rooms in Midtown run 400 plus even in a dump

New York sees more overseas and domestic visitors than any other U.S. destination except Orlando, Florida, according to analysts at Global Insight Inc. But it has fewer hotel rooms than less popular spots including Las Vegas, Chicago, the Los Angeles metro area and Atlanta, according to Smith Travel Research.

Can you access the entire stadium with a bleacher ticket? Or are you restricted to the bleachers?

Ugh...this is horsecrap!
They divided the Tier Reserved (Upper Deck) into MVP and regular...with the "MVP" section now up to $27 for us season ticket people (Last year the whole upper deck was $19 I believe).
All this for the right to get screwed over when the new stadium comes...great
