  • Ticket question from and out of town fan.

    I'm hoping to get tickets to a single game this season, so that I can bring my Dad to see Yankee Stadium before it closes.

    We're up in Toronto, so I'm thinking that we might try to catch the Blue Jays on the last weekend in August. (Don't worry....we're Yankee fans.)

    So here are my questions:

    1) Are the Blue Jays a fairly hot ticket? Obviously it isn't crazy like the Red Sox, but are Blue Jays tickets hard to come by, compared to, say, Baltimore or Texas?

    2) Are there any tricks to get single game tickets before the general public on-sale date of Feb. 29th?

    If anyone can give me a hand with this, it would be great. Really appreciated. I want to make sure that my Dad has a chance to see the Stadium before it's gone.

    The Blue Jays aren't really what you would call a "hot" ticket. But I'm guessing this year especially in August and September that everyone is going to want to see the stadium one last time. A weekend game might be more difficult than mid-week. Try EBay or Craigslist if you have trouble getting something from the Yankees themselves.

      The only two teams that are routinely difficult to get tickets to at Yankee Stadium would be the Red Sox and Mets. Add in the All-Star Game, since this is the swan song for YS-II before YS-III opens next spring.

      If a team is red hot, tickets to those games may go faster, or if the Yanks are playing another postseason foe (like Anaheim or Motown), the stadium may be somewhat packed even during the week. Please watch out for special promotional nights, such as a player having his special day, as those will also sell quickly.

      I think that Ticketron is the official online or call-in ticket seller of MLB. If you're in the NYC area before this and wish to purchase in person, you can always try the Yankee Stadium Box Office at the stadium itself, or one of the various clubhouse shops. Please search for "YANKEES CLUBHOUSE SHOPS":

          If you folks wish to buy/sell tickets, it's up to you, but please remember, let the buyer beware. It's up to them, and BBF cannot be held responsible for any outcome, but at least be honest with each other in this business transaction.
