The Yanks unveiled their single-game ticket prices, and front row seats will cost $2625. Luckily, the rest of the seats are in line with what we would expect:

Individual game sales for the first season of the $1.5 billion ballpark start Tuesday, and the Legends Seats that ring the infield start at $525 a game, according to the team’s Web site. Those seats cost $500-$2,500 as part of full season tickets, and they include food and soft drinks.

Other field level seats cost $95, $150, $275, $300, $350 and $375. Then comes the Delta Sky360 Suite, where tickets are $375-$800, and main level tickets, which are priced at $60, $80, $95 and $150.

On the top deck, seats in the Jim Beam Suite go for $130-$150. Terrace seats are $50, $75 and $85, and grandstand tickets cost $23 and $30. Full view bleachers are $14.

Those prices are mostly in line with comparable seats from 2008 at old Yankee Stadium. Meanwhile, the Yankees say that around 800 of their 4300 premium seat packages remain unsold. Sales of those tickets had been brisk until the economy tanked in the fall.

These tickets go on sale on Tuesday for those lucky enough to get an email from the Yanks yesterday.

    “Those seats cost $500-$2,500 as part of full season tickets, and they include food and soft drinks.”

    Me: “Twenty-five hundred dollars?!?! What an incredible ripoff!!!! There’s no way you can justify charging me that much to watch a baseball game.”
    Yankees: “Well, you do get free food and soft drinks.”
    Me: “Oh, well then, nevermind. That seems reasonable. Why didn’t you mention the free food and soft drinks before? I’m sorry for yelling.”

      Yankees: “Well, you do get free food, soft drinks, a pedicure, limousine service, a back rub by Brian Cashman and a date with Salma Hayek.”

      Me: “Oh, well then, nevermind. That seems reasonable. Why didn’t you mention the free stuff before? I’m sorry for yelling.”

      Fixed that for ya.

    ‘These tickets go on sale on Tuesday for those lucky enough to get an email from the Yanks yesterday.’

    I don’t think thats right. The ‘lottery’ winners get to buy tickets MONDAY…then on Tuesday the rest of us get a chance to buy them.

      How is that not fair? The Yankees made it known that if you wanted first crack at single game tickets you would have to enter the lottery to get a chance to buy them. Selling them all at once would be impossible. If you wanted first dibs you should have entered the lottery.

      • fwwank

        no, you misunderstand me

        I meant I don’t think the information in the original post is CORRECT.

        ‘These tickets go on sale on TUESDAY for those lucky enough to get an email from the Yanks yesterday.’

        that should read

        ‘These tickets go on sale on MONDAY for those lucky enough to get an email from the Yanks yesterday.’

        the general public can then buy tickets on Tuesday.

        ps – I did sign up for the lottery (as did many friends of mine) and none of us were chosen. I think the fix is in.

          I dont know a single person that got selected.

  • Jake H

    I’m sure that they are going to sell out the tickets.

  • Stu H

    I was pretty pissed when I got the e-mail saying “Sorry, you were not selected to have the opportunity to buy Yankees tickets.” Ridiculous.

      Stu the same here i was pissed wen they sent that email and den i was talking to ma sis and she told me don’t worry about it ma boss could get us tickets so den dat made ma day.

        So are you offering to take Stu to the game with you when your sis’s boss gives you tickets? Because if not, you’re just kind of gloating in Stu’s face.

  • yankeefan91 Arod fan

    Well at least im lucky i get to get free tickets to any home Yankee game because of my sisters boss hes a part owner of the yanks he owns a percentage sum tin like that and he gets us free tickets.But if it wasn’t for that how the hell would i afford to go see ma favorite team like i usually did.

    The lottery winners get to buy tix on Monday. Tuesday is the general sale at Ticketmaster.com, clubhouse stores, and the Yankee Stadium Box Office.

    • fwwank

      right.

      what he said.

    I hope that $2,600 seat is really comfortable. You think people would mind if I sat there during one of those rainy games where everyone leaves?
