New Yankee Stad. Seats Average $237 Per Game

Thanks to THE BIZ OF BASEBALL, we finally have a great, comprehensive breakdown of all the tickets at the new Yankee Stadium and just how much each seat will cost its buyer, and the stats are positively startling. Yet the scary thing isn’t just the high-end cost for seats behind home plate — $2,625 per game, by far an MLB record — it’s also the overall average per seat price, breaking down to a whopping $237 per seat for the upcoming season. Needless to say, that’s the most in that category, too.

Just check out the price for seats in the Legends section, a second tier area (Sections 11-29) where tickets range from $525 (and there’s only a couple that cheap) to a $2,625 that’s just as expensive as home plate. In fact, the only way to get the average ticket price at the new Stadium below $200 is to exclude all the suite seats entirely, which are precisely one of the primary reasons the team was building this stadium in the first place; to charge more for corporate suites so tickets wouldn’t be more expensive in other parts of the park. Guess that didn’t happen.

(Just kidding, Cleveland, you’re swell.) Given all that preseason hype, combined with that needy desperation and Ken Wisenhunt’s actual ability to turn the team around, it seems odd that they aren’t selling all of their season tickets.

But they’re not. And that leaves a giant void in sales that is being crept on by Dallas Cowboys fans, who are trying to procure entry for the October 12th regular season ‘Boys-’Saw matchup. But, as YAHOO! SPORTS reports, the Cardinals are instituting measures for controlling the population of Texans inside the Pink Taco.

WKU Players Going Door To Door To Sell Tickets
