The Yankees throw season ticket holders a bone with exhibition ticket prices

The Yankees did the smart thing today and announced visibly reduced prices for the April 3 and April 4 exhibition games that will open up the new Stadium.

According to this release, full season ticket holders will get the games for free, while partial plan holders will have the opportunity to purchase bleacher tickets for 25 cents and grandstand (upper deck) tickets for $1.10. Apparently, these were the prices back in 1923 for the opener at the old Stadium.

This is a nice gesture, but it would have had a bit more impact if it was the first regular season game. This is yet another aspect of these exhibition games that are going to take away from the regular season opener. I may or may not have gotten up on this soapbox before.
