A fun, sports-filled experience.

Taking my infant son to Yankee Stadium for his first baseball game may be one of our family’s most anticipated events and it's not because I am a baseball nut (though I do love the Yankees). It’s actually because it is an amazing New York experience sitting under the lights on a balmy night or on a bright sunny day, if it’s a day game, enjoying popcorn and hot dogs along with a cold beer with thousands of other cheering New Yorkers who are having a great time - well, when we win, which is often. And when they play Frank Sinatra’s 'New York, New York' at the end with everyone singing along, I get positively emotional. It’s hands down one of New York’s best experiences.


Value for money

Price advice

Since the completion of the new stadium in 2009, ticket prices for seats to see a Yankee game have gone through the roof. Choice seats can run a family of four upwards of US$800. Still, deals can be had via stubhub.com or at the ticket office on the day of the game. The bleachers are still the best option for anyone on a budget.
