  • Opening Day

    Where do most people park when they go to games? I always park in lot #3 up on the roof. It's great for tailgating.

    I think it would be fun to get people from the message board together at opening day for a few drinks.

    I don't drive. I know, I'm a loser cause I'm 25 years old and I don't drive. But anyway, the lot my dad normally parks in isn't there anymore. I realized that when we went to the game on July 4th last year. I guess they knocked it down, with one of the jail houses, to add parks for when they open the new stadium. It was either lot 10 or lot 12. It only had 1 level, and it was a roof. My Grampa parked in that same lot when I went with him a long time ago. It's gotta be Lot 12. When I was younger, my dad would always park in the main lot, but as the team got better, and more people came out to see the Yankees, we had to park in different places.

      What time is good to get to the stadium? 12pm? or earlier?

        I'd get there earlier if you wanna walk around. And, if you've never been there, you should get there earlier and walk around. There's stores and bars accross the street to check out. Plus, it gets really crowded if you get there late. Try to get there by 11:30.

          Opening Day I'm getting there a little before 10AM. I know it sounds early but I want to walk around the new stadium and take pictures. Then some friends and I tailgate.

            Should be more interesting from now on, since lot #3 is directly across the street from the new ballpark.

            Hmmm... because it is across the street, I wonder if they've given any thought to adding another level or two, or knocking it down and replacing it with a taller structure.

              I doubt they will tear down the parking garage. I was reading an article online that said it costs roughly $25,000 per spot to construct an above ground parking garage.

                Last time I went to a game, I went in really early - around 8:00 AM - and parked across the street for free. Then I just walked around the city until the game. Of course, I don't live near New York so it was a little more interesting for me than it might be for someone who sees the city a lot.

                  when you say The City, do you mean The Bronx or Manhattan?

                  Because for those of us who live in/around NYC, when someone says The City, we think Manhattan. But NYC isn't just Manhattan. It's The Bronx, Queens, Brooklyn and Staten Island too. And Yankee Stadium is in The Bronx, not Manhattan.

                    Important Question

                    Does anyone know what will happen if Monday's Opening Day is rained out? Will they move the game to Tuesday because it's an open day on the schedule? They're calling for rain both Monday and Tuesday.

                      I have tickets to Wednesday's game, if Monday is rained out and they can't play Tuesday what happens to us Wednesday ticket-holders? (Incidentally, Wednesday's game - and Thursday's as well - is a "Fujifilm $5.00 game," where all Tier (reserved and box) and Bleacher tickets are just $5.00 apiece. I wonder if that would factor in to any decision.)

                        The rain out should not affect your tickets (unless that game is also rained out). From my experience, what usually happens with a rain out is that people holding tickets for that game will have one of two options: 1) Use the tickets when that game is made up; or 2) Trade in the tickets at the Yankees Box Office within the next year for tickets to another game (or multiple games if you want to split up the value of the tickets). However, the first one may not be an option if the game is rescheduled as part of a doubleheader. In that case, people who have tickets to the game regularly scheduled during the doubleheader will probably be able to go to both games, meaning people with tickets to the original game that was rained out will have to exchange their tickets. This might not apply though if it's a day/night doubleheader, say with one game starting at 1 and the other at 7. In that case, the tickets for the original rained out game might still be good for the make up game. Got all this?

                            oops, didn't realize there was a lingo. I mean both. We parked, took the subway to Manhattan for a while to see the sites, came back and poked around the Bronx for a bit before the game

                              Normally I'd agree with everything you said, but since we're talking about Opening Day, which the Yankees have designated as a "Premium Game," I wonder if the rules are different. Everybody wants to go to Opening Day; not so for a midweek night game against Toronto (which, I guess, is why it was selected as a Fujifilm $5.00 game).
