Did you go to last night’s game? You’ve got a free ticket coming to you

If you braved the rain mist and sat through the Yankees and Orioles game last night, the Yankees have announced that you are entitled to a free Grandstand or Terrace level ticket for a future game this season (excluding Old Timer’s Day and series against the Mets or Red Sox). Obviously the tickets are subject to availability, and you have to bring your valid ticket from last night’s game to the ticket windows at the Stadium to redeem the offer. That’s one way to get people in the park, eh?

    It was nice of the Yanks to do that, they obviously did not have to so they went above and beyond. I remember in 2009 when the Yanks and Nats had a five and half hour delay and they pretty much let the 500 fans still there just sit where ever the wanted (excluding the Legends) and I am pretty sure they got a free ticket as well. However, to stay through a five and half hour delay is fifty times more impressive.

      Yeah that’s nuts. I remember going to a Red Sox game in 2002 that started after an hour delay and delayed again in the bottom of the first for another hour and a half. The game started right as the Nets beat the Celtics to go to the NBA finals, and they put the game on the Jumbotron. That was awesome.

      Watching the Nats is pretty impressive in itself.

    I get to go to maybe one game every few years, but the best example I remember of treating fans right was a very cold September game when the TV announcers mentioned that the Yankees were giving out free hot chocolate to everyone in the park. Very little financial skin off their backs to reward fans.

    How do they know if you stayed for the whole game or not?

      Doesn’t matter. Any hard copy or TicketMaster ticket will be valid for the offer.

    I was at last night’s game and got the special $5 tickets, so for $7 (after fees) I get to see two games… I’ll take that deal any day of the week and twice on sundays.
