The 1923 Yankee Stadium is a historic landmark in the world of Major League Baseball. Some of the sport's greatest players have spent their careers there, including Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Mickey Mantle, and Joe DiMaggio. Though they'll never be able to replace this monument, the franchise debuted their new stadium in 2009, directly across the street from their old park. The "new" Yankee Stadium has many new features, such as expanded walkways, more concessionaires, and a renovated Monument Park. Lifetime fans will notice familiar touches, though, the biggest among them being the outfield frieze back in its original location around the upper deck. Suite and party facilities are available for those looking for something slightly more private. Check website for pricing, schedules, and other info.
The atmosphere was incredible. The fans know their baseball and are really into their team. The stadium was very old, with narrow aisles, but the tradition of this stadium made it all worth it!
We took the subway from Manhattan and it was very easy and safe. Well worth doing!!
I would recommend anyone who loves tradition and the great game of baseball to catch a game at this fantastic park before it is gone!
I attended all three games this weekend at Yankee Stadium to see the Yankees play toe hated Red Sox. I have been to Yankee Stadium pre-9/11 and post 9/11, and have read reviews about ushers being rude, etc. I had no problem with any of the ushers, and found them to be very kind. Take the SUBWAY to the stadium. The B-D and 4 trains go to 161 St/Yankee Stadium. Follow the crowd. When you enter, expect a mob, but a quick moving one. It took me about 6 minutes to get into the stadium each day. You will be asked to remove your cap, turn cell phones and cameras on, and open any jackets. You may be patted down as well. Once inside the stadium, ushers will help you find your seats, although the alleyways are labeled and your seats should be not hard to find. Once there, get some food and enjoy the game!
--Food is pretty expensive, even by ballpark standards. A 20oz Coke is $5.00. Peanuts are $5.00, Cracker Jack is $5.50, Beer is $8.00 a bottle.
--The loge level offers GREAT seating. Look on eBay for a good deal. Also, the upper deck level isn't horrible, especially if you are in the Tier Box section (As opposed to Tier Reserved)
--Gates open 2 hours before Game Time. Get here then. Enter quickly and go right to Section 36 to visit Monument Park. There are Yankees monuments, plaques, etc. and it really is a great place. But, get here early because getting in is hard and lines are long.
The Excitement of the game and the way the fans love the Yankees and the game of baseball is amazing! I live in Rochester and I go to a Yankees Game Around Every June or July! It is the best! Their's nothing like seeing Derek Jeter and Alex Rodriguez do some outstanding plays and hit homeruns. The Stadium is Beutiful and they have the best hot dogs lol!!!!! It was worth the $80 I paid for my ticket!!!! If you seat close to home plate if is amazing!!!! If you seat in the nleachers are around foul territory, It is great too becuase of homeruns and foul balls. You don't have to be a Yankees Fan to go. But If your a Red Soxs Fan, BE CAREFUL. Yankees Are The Best!!!!!!!! We Need #27 OK
It's very difficult to describe the feeling one gets when you're at Yankee Stadium. It's truly a moving experience you gets just being there It's a feeling one gets from no other stadium in the world. Even my wife, who is not a baseball fan, gets caught up in the excitement of being there. What other park has the history of the Yankees. After all, it is the "the winningest sports franchise of all time". To me it's like being in a shrine especially when you visit monument park. I'm going to miss it when it's gone. I don't think any new stadium, no matter how beautiful, can ever replace it.
This is definitely a world class facility...I'm not a Yankee fan, but honestly, the times that I have been here have been memorable...there's not one bad seat in the house and the prices for seating have a huge range for all to afford...Try to go to Monument Park and see all of the retired numbers...and if you have the chance, do the Tour...you have two more seasons to do this before the new stadium opens...be a part of history....
BEING SO I LIVE VERY CLOSE TO THIS PLACE I CAN SAY IT'S A SIGHT FOR SOMEONE WHO LOVES BASEBALL. IF YOU EVER DREAMED OF COMING TO NYC JUST TO SEE THIS PLACE WELL IT WILL BE A BIG MEMORY FOR YOU IT GET CROWDED ON BASEBALL SEASON BUT FOR A BASEBALL FAN IT'S WELL WORTHTHE WAIT SEE YOU THERE.
