2009 Yankee Stadium Promotional Calendar Released

It seems that each day, there is a new nugget of information provided by lately (even though there is no easy way to monitor this information. Memo to the NY Yankees - get with the times and provide RSS feeds on your website - THANKS).

Today, we stumbled across the 2009 promotional schedule, which is surprisingly light on promotion days. Perhaps this is only a preliminary calendar, but it is also very possible that it is a sign of the times.

The Yankees have a brand new stadium and likely don't have much of a need to solicit advertisers for promotional dates. At the same time, many companies have balance sheets that are worse off than the water in the toilets at Yankee Stadium on Super Flushing Day. At first glance, it looks like the long-time Yankee Stadium tradition of "bat day" is a casualty of the recessionary times. Those things must be expensive. In another sign of the times, Tuesday September 8, is "soup bowl" night, sponsored by Boars Head. No word yet if they'll be rolling in a soup kitchen to help Yankee fans in need of a warm meal.

Be sure to check out the full list of promotional dates and don't dare sleep on "New York Yankees Ice Cream Bowl Day" - that is gonna be SAWEEET!
