A not-so-exclusive secret about Yankee Stadium

By

On Monday morning, The Post, in what they termed an “exclusive,” reported that the Yanks and Mets are secretly negotiating with the city to work out deals to sell parts of their old stadiums. The Yankees, through Randy Levine, has since confirmed that they are trying to work out a marketing deal but have no plans to purchase the stadium from the city. Now, The Post can use whatever labels it wants, but this story is not an exclusive. I wrote about it 19 days ago when USA Today reported it as news. No matter the outcome, fans will get the chance to buy bits and pieces of Yankee Stadium. Who wants the pitcher’s rubber?

    I’d drop $25 on a baggie of infield dirt.

    I am told that someone matching my description already got some dirt a few years ago during a stadium tour.

    But, I will pay $1,000 for a stadium seat.

    They sold the seats when they renovated. Most of them went for about $7

    I’m referring to the 1976 seats that have been in the park for 32 years. Those seats may not compare to their predecessors, but they’ve seen: 6 world championships, 10 world series, numerous playoff games, 2 all star games, 2 perfect games, jeter’s 2000th hit and my first ever games at Yankee Stadium.

    That’s more history than any other ballpark can boast since 1976 and more than most ballparks can claim in their entire histories, even Fenway and dodger stadium. So pass on the seats and I will buy yours.

      ALot of the seats aren’t freestanding so getting one may be harder than you think.

  • Jeb

    I’m not expecting anyone to give me a seat. I’ve been saving for 2 years already with a seat in mind.
