Thursday Night Open Thread

Just a heads up, the Yankees announced individual game tickets will go on sale on Monday, February 24th at 10am ET. The Mastercard pre-sale runs from February 19th though February 23rd. Here is the press release with all the information. Derek Jeter‘s final regular season home game is scheduled for Thursday, September 25th, though I suspect they’ll have his big going away ceremony the prior weekend like they did with Mariano Rivera.

    Just a follow on to that — they only release a limited number of tickets for the pre-sales so if you don’t get tickets for the game you want during the pre-sale, make sure you try again for the general public sale since that is when all seats are released. Also, another suggestion is to check back throughout the pre-sale as people undoubtedly ignore published ticket limits and their orders get cancelled and their tickets are released back into the pool. I have stumbled upon good tickets in Day 2/3 of pre-sales before.

    Good luck everyone!

    I’m part of the pre-sale, and immediately I am going to September 25th

    I have a feeling there won’t be many tickets available for that. Not because others doing the pre-sale will pick it out too, but more so is that the Yankees have a partial season ticket 12 game plan which includes the last game of the year. I have a 12 game plan but it’s the one that’s for opening day. Immediately at 2PM on Tuesday I’m ordering those tickets.

    I don’t know if any of you heard the story or if it was posted here, but Cooperstown hotels were getting many phone calls to get a reservation in 2020. If people are that obsessed to see Jeter’s induction, they’ll be obsessed to see his last home game (unless they make the playoffs which of course is a possibility).

      How do you become part of the pre-sale? Last year it was MasterCard holders. What is it this year?

      • MB923

        I am a Mastercard holder. I assume I’m part of the pre-sale because I have a ticket plan with them. Here’s the message they sent me (obviously I’m not including my account #, name and PW though which was written above the following:

        Dear Season Ticket Licensee:

        We want to thank you for your continued support of the New York Yankees by offering you the opportunity to participate in the Individual Game Ticket Pre-on-sale. You will have a special opportunity to participate in a pre-on-sale commencing Tuesday, Feb. 18 at 2 p.m. ET and lasting until Sunday, Feb. 23 at 10 p.m. ET. This pre-on-sale opportunity will provide you the chance to purchase Tickets for designated regular season games scheduled to be played by the Yankees at Yankee Stadium before they go on sale to the general public, subject to availability.

        This wasn’t the whole e-mail though but it was the first part of it.

        It also appears the pre-sale is Mastercard Exclusive again this year. Check this out here:

          Thanks!

          Hey, when did the Yankees send you that email? I bought my package two days ago and wanted to see when I’d get mine. Thanks!

          • MB923

            They sent it to me February 11th

  • Dr. Grenaldine

    Which day of the weekend do you think it will be? Saturday or Sunday?

    I need to knowwww!!

    • MB923

      Mo’s was on a Sunday. The Sunday prior to Jeter’s last game at the stadium is already a promo day for Beanie Buddy day, so likely it will be on the Saturday. Completely guess on my part though of course.

      • Dr. Grenaldine

        With all of the money being thrown around for September 25th, do you think the Yankees pay attention to that and make sure everyone gets their money’s worth for that game? Or do you think they couldn’t care less and they do everything on a day of their choosing?

        While I understand Mariano was absolutely amazing, he wasn’t nearly as overall popular as Derek Jeter. His ticket sales increases weren’t even close.
