ATTENTION: NEW STADIUM INSIDER HAS MOVED TONYYSTADIUMINSIDER.COM. FOR ALL OF THE INFORMATION YOU COULD EVER WANT ABOUT YANKEE STADIUM MOHEGAN SUN SPORTS BAR, PLEASE VISIT OUR NEW AND IMPROVED WEBSITE!
Shame on us for not doing due diligence in verifying our earlier "membership only" news regarding the Mohegan Sun Sports Bar area in center field of the new Yankee Stadium. According to multiple sources within the Yankee ticket office (including one who claims to be a manager but really isn't), the seats will be sold on a single game basis, and will cost "around $100."
As of now, details are still being finalized, but rumor has it the Yankees will be allowing everyone in to check out the sports bar this weekend during the exhibition games. For once it seems that the Yankees are taking the right approach to try to sell premium seats.
According to our sources, numbered, bar stool seats will face the field for people with tickets in the Mohegan Sun Sports Bar. Remember, none of this is official until it appears on Yankees.com, so this information is all subject to change. We find it pretty unbelievable that the stadium opens in a couple of days and we are still relying on information from made up hospitality directors and random sources in the ticket office.
In regard to the actual seats, our opinion has certainly changed considering the above information. Why would someone pay upwards of $100 per game to sit behind glass over 500 feet away from home plate and be overcharged for drinks? Why not just go to ESPN Zone in Times Square if you want to watch the game from a sports bar?
