This upcoming weekend features a circle-the-calendar event as the 69th annual Old-Timers’ Day will be held at Yankee Stadium. Ceremonies will be held prior to the Yankees-Detroit Tigers game at approximately 4:00 p.m., including Willie Randolph being honored with a Monument Park plaque.
For fans looking to attend the ceremony and celebration of Yankees history, there are multiple avenues to explore in trying to find the best deal for tickets.
Yankees Old-Timers’ Day tickets on the secondary market have an average price of $73.64 with a get-in price of $15, according to TiqIQ.com. It is the second-most expensive game of the series against the Detroit Tigers, as Sunday’s average ticket price is slightly higher at $74.38 with the same get-in price of $15.
But the best route might be using Yankees.com. From our price comparisons, the prices for tickets on Yankees.com are at times better than buying on the secondary market. For instance, a 100-level seat (Sec. 123, Row 21) on Yankees.com costs $300, while a seat in the same section and row on the secondary market comes out to $337. Additionally, a 300-level seat costing $100 on Yankees.com for Sec. 323, Row 3, costs $147 on the secondary market.
Another option is the Yankees ticket exchange, which is offering 10% off all tickets to college graduates and dads for Father’s Day weekend with promo code YankeesEmail10.
And it’s shaping up to be another great Yankees event. Yankee greats and Baseball Hall of Fame inductees Yogi Berra, Wade Boggs, Whitey Ford, Rich “Goose” Gossage, Rickey Henderson, Reggie Jackson and Joe Torre are scheduled to attend. David Cone, John Flaherty, Paul O’Neill, Bucky Dent, Cecil Fielder, Ron Guidry, Charlie Hayes, Don Larsen and many more will also be there to celebrate the new member of Monument Park.
Randolph was with the Yankees for 13 seasons and was a five-time American League All-Star. Randolph won back-to-back World Series with the Yankees in 1977 and 1978 and earned four more rings with the Yankees during his 11 seasons coaching.
