How to get New York Yankee tickets
For those looking to enjoy a Yankee game to its fullest without spending a fortune on admission, consider going to a game during the week. The cost of admission tends to be lower on a weekday when compared to the cost on the weekend. In addition to going on a weekday, consider sitting up higher in the stands. The design and layout of Yankee Stadium is fantastic, and really, you should worry more about inclement weather rather than getting a bad seat. This is a great way to get New York Yankees cheap tickets.
If you’re not buying for a large group, and for even bigger cost savings, be patient and wait to buy tickets from a seller who needs to offload unsold tickets. Sure, that means you may be waiting until the last minute to make your purchase, but the payoff can be substantial and is a strategy that works quite well.
