2 Ninja Turtles sat behind home plate at Yankees Opening Day
On Sunday night, late-night television host John Oliver used his platform to publicly shame New York Yankees management from severely restricting premium ticket access to the casual fan.
As part of his protest against the team's new policies, Oliver claimed that his show bought a pair of premium tickets to each of the Yankees' first three home games this season -- and he vowed to sell them at 25 cents a pop to the fans who messaged him on Twitter with the most entertaining wardrobe -- as the Yankees had previously explained their strict policies as attempts to keep "someone who has never sat in a premium location" out of the expensive seats.

The results of the contest resulted in
some hilarious entries. But the winners -- at least for Game 1 of the season -- are in.
And the tickets go to.... A pair of Ninja Turtles!
Thankfully, there will be more winners appearing in those seats while wearing ridiculous outfits on Wednesday and Thursday. So even if the Yankees aren't your favorite team, you'll have a reason to keep an eye on those first few rows behind home plate this week.

Ranking MLB stadiums
30. Tropicana Field, Tampa Bay Rays
The playing surface is a mixture of grass and artificial turf, and there are fire inspection rings in play over head. Must be a joy to play in.
29. Rogers Centre, Toronto Blue Jays
The only things worse than this warehouse-looking place are the metric measurements on the outfield walls.
27. Globe Life Park in Arlington, Texas Rangers
Remember when this place was state of the art? Neither do we.

26. U.S. Cellular Field, Chicago White Sox
What’s more bland than the Chicago White Sox? Their uniforms. What’s worse than that? The stadium.

24. Marlins Park, Miami Marlins
Makes perfect sense for an orange and teal team to play in a stadium with neon green everything. Also, has anyone ever figured out what exactly

22. Progressive Field, Cleveland Indians
The fact that it’s no longer Jacobs Field bumps this down at least five spots.
19. Chase Field, Arizona Diamondbacks
Center field is the deepest part of the stadium, guys. The wall doesn’t need to be that high.
18. Yankee Stadium, New York Yankees
Great place to see the best baseball players of the 20th century.

17. Miller Park, Milwaukee Brewers
Bernie sliding down that slide for every home run is ridiculous and awesome at the same time. Every time.

16. Citizens Bank Park, Philadelphia Phillies
Once you get over the fact that some little league parks have deeper fences? Cool place to catch a game.

15. Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles Dodgers
They should probably just name it Vin Scully Stadium at this point. Might help them out in these rankings.

14. Kauffman Stadium, Kansas City Royals
The scoreboard being shaped like a long crown is a bit odd, but you can’t blame them for playing up the whole royalty thing.

13. Coors Field, Colorado Rockies
If it’s not a blizzard in Denver, Coors Field is still pretty impressive. But let’s lose those humidors and get these balls flying like its 2001.

12. Comerica Park, Detroit Tigers
Credit to the grounds crew for making sure the infield didn’t collapse through the ground while Prince Fielder and Miguel Cabrera manned the corners. That approached a good 600 pounds of man.

11. Minute Maid Park, Houston Astros
Get back to us next year, once that ridiculous hill and flag pole are scrapped.

10. Target Field, Minnesota Twins
You probably won’t want to sit outside in Minnesota until about mid-June, but after that, Target Field is tough to beat.

9. Citi Field, New York Mets
Ownership may be fresh out of cash, but at least its stadium has an awesome selection of $12 beers.

7. Safeco Field, Seattle Mariners
For a stadium that opened up in 1999, the Mariners’ digs have held up pretty well -- even when their roster hasn’t.

5. Fenway Park, Boston Red Sox
Relax, Fenway is definitely an amazing place to watch a game. But sitting directly behind a pole and/or facing the left-center field wall just isn’t always appealing.
4. Wrigley Field, Chicago Cubs
We’re glad the Cubs decided to keep their old home intact, but there’s no two ways about it: Until renovation is complete, Wrigley is a dump.

3. PNC Park, Pittsburgh Pirates
After two decades under .500, the Pirates are finally playing some winning ball again. Good thing, because their park deserves as many games as possible.

2. Oriole Park at Camden Yards, Baltimore Orioles
Still as beautiful as the day it opened in 1992, Camden Yards is headed toward becoming the next legendary American ballpark.

1. AT&T Park, San Francisco Giants
Already 15 years and three names later, AT&T Park remains the best place to watch a Major League Baseball game. Between the amazing food, packed-out stands and the glistening bay in right field, San Francisco is lucky to call it home.
