Today I went to my first ever baseball game and my first Yankees game! One of the boy's clients works at a radio station, and he gave him loge box seats (495) for free! The best part is, today was the second to last game ever to be played at this Yankee Stadium. Next season they will open a new stadium across the street. I felt lucky to be a part of history. Here's the view from our seats.
One great thing about the Yankees is that the stadium is a convenient 20 minute subway ride from our apartment. We got there late, so we avoided all of the crowds. Even the food lines weren't that long.
The game was tied 0-0 for the entire game, until the Yankees batted in a run with 2 outs at the bottom of the 9th inning! How suspenseful. I'm also lucky to have attended a game when that Yankees won! Everyone was excited and in good spirits afterwards.
After the game, we were in no rush to get home, so we walked down to the main level and took some more pictures. It definitely feels a lot closer from down there. To me, each player was about a centimeter tall, though I could see the entire game being played out extremely well and comfortably.
(I do not know the person who happened to be in the photo!) Overall, great day. Too bad I discovered I liked baseball games at the end of the season, but there's always next year.
