Party like it's 1923: Yankee bleacher tickets for 25 cents


It's news that brings any baseball fan out of the off-season doldrums: Bleacher tickets to the first two games at the new Yankee Stadium will only cost a quarter, the Yankees announced Tuesday, and grandstand tickets will be $1.10.

The "Turn Back the Clock" promotion matches the prices for the opener of the original Yankee Stadium against Boston on April 18, 1923, when Babe Ruth hit a third-inning home run off Howard Ehmke.

But don't get too excited. While it is the opening of the stadium, they're exhibition games (against the Chicago Cubs, a good team worthy of seeing) and for the general public to get the tickets you have to wait for season-ticket holders and even partial season-ticket holders to get the discounted tickets. The exhibition games are April 3 and 4.
