New York Yankees Tickets
Buying New York Yankees Tickets is pretty easy. There are two options: either you buy e-tickets that will be sent per email; or you buy the ‘real’ paper tickets. Did you know the New York Yankees often play six times a week? That gives you plenty of options to see them play live. Are you not much of a sports fan, or maybe just not this sport? No problem, the atmosphere alone will be worth a trip to the stadium. Especially since tickets needn’t cost a lot, and you can leave the stadium at any point.
Where to sit at a Yankees Game?
Tickets prices go from 7 dollars up to even a few thousand. A regular, reasonable price for a good seat lies somewhere between 35 and 105 dollars a ticket. The Yankees Stadium is a gigantic stadium and to have a good view you really need to know what seat to choose. Sitting too high up – in the “nosebleed section” – means it’s hard to see the ball, while a spot at the back means you won’t be able to see the entire field. I advise you to choose seats in the selections I’ve marked red on the chart below. Tickets in the 400-series are usually cheap, but the seats are pretty high up in the stadium.
Click here and look for the date you’d like to visit a game. Make sure the Yankees are playing a home match. If so, you will find ‘Bronx NY’ and ‘Yankee Stadium’ as a location. If they aren’t playing a home game, consider checking if the New York Mets are. The tickets can be payed by credit card and will be sent to either your home address or your email address.
To make sure you receive the tickets on time, it’s safest to choose for the ‘e-tickets’ option. You’ll recognize these tickets by the green box marked “e”. Click ‘show only e-tickets’ to exclusively find tickets with this option. Another benefit of purchasing e-tickets is that shipping costs are $7,50, which is the cheapest rate.
If you prefer paper tickets, don’t take any risks and make sure you order them on time. It takes about four to five days for the tickets to arrive after they are sent. Tickets that are ordered just a few days before the match can also be picked up at the counter. This option will show up during check-out.
On this website you will find pre-ordered tickets and tickets of season card holders that are unable to go themselves. This explains the low pricing. However, it can happen that the prices are higher than the original prices. That usually means the game was already sold out.
Getting to the Yankees Stadium
The easiest way to reach the Yankees Stadium is by metro. The stop is called ‘161 Street’ and the stadium is right across the station. Subway line 4 brings you straight to the Yankees Stadium. Line B and D go into the same direction, but they don’t always stop at 161 Street station. If you’re getting onto one of these lines, make sure to ask a New Yorker (preferably one with a Yankees shirt) whether the subway stops at the stadium or not. All of these lines basically cross all of Manhattan, so you can hop on at many different stops. You pay the regular metro fare (so no surcharge).
Arriving Before the Game
If the game starts at 1PM, and you arrive at 12:50PM, you will have to queue to get in, but being very early means you’ll probably be bored for a while. That’s why I would aim for arriving 30 to 60 minutes before the kick off. Ideally you make sure to be seated at least 5 to 10 minutes before the game starts, so you won’t miss the national anthem, which is quite an event in itself. Although halfway the 7th inning there will be singing again.
Eric’s Tip: Going to a live baseball game in New York is an activity I would recommend to everybody. It’s also a great thing to do for families with children. Don’t feel obliged to stay throughout the entire game. Personally, I usually leave around the eighth inning. The photos are made from section 423, row 2.
