Heading to New York Yankees Stadium is one of my all time favorite things to do in NYC! The Yankees had just finished their incredible FOUR GAME SWEEP AGAINST BOSTON, some games going later than 1:30 am, so the crowd was on a high at this Monday night game in August 2009 vs. Toronto Blue Jays.
Getting to New York Yankee Stadium could not be eaiser – or more fun! The 4 train is packed with fans covered head-to-toe in Yankee gear. Weeknight games, the subway is crowded, as daily commuters are heading home from work. You’ll always know when to get off the subway – just follow the other 50,000 fans to New York Yankee Stadium!

NYC Insider Tip – Avoid lines after the game
Fill up your Metrocard, if it’s not Unlimited Ride, before you go to the game, or you’ll be waiting for hours trying to fill it at the Yankee Stadium subway after the game.

NY Yankees Logo on Flag
at New York Yankees StadiumMixed in with the Player pictures are huge flags with the NY Yankees Symbol. So much to do in addition to the game – tons of shops, restaurants of all kinds and the New York Yankees Museum.
I headed straight to Tommy Bahamas Restaurant to get some wine. Of course, most other fans are drinking a cold one – Yankees Beer!
New York Yankee Stadium Scoreboard 18th Row seats had waitress service and cup holders, very nice. Clean, spacious and roomy.
The lovely waitress took our orders, Hot Dogs – with mustard and onions, of course. The stadium has lots of healthy choices, but family tradition won that day.
If only there were air-conditioning! I guess it would be hard to cool off 52,325 seats. Check the Yankee Stadium Seating Chart.

Jeter is the Yankees team captain – leadership, grace under pressure and despite all his fame and success, manages to maintain an appearance of humility.

Freddy Sez Yankee Stadium,
More than 85 years!Maybe you’ve heard something that sounds like pots clanging together in the background during a televised Yankee Game?
Well, that’s exactly what it was.
Freddy Schuman, aka “Freddy Sez” (May 23, 1925 – October 17, 2010) carried a frying pan painted with a shamrock painted, which he says “Brings ‘em luck.” Fans bang loudly on the pot with a spoon to make noise. Freddy even has own Wiki page.
