Matthew Mitchell, a fan who has been going to New York Yankees games since 1984, is suing the team over the steroids scandal that pointed the finger at 20 current and former Yankees. He says the Yankees committed "consumer fraud," and he wants a refund of $221 for tickets he purchased and a public statement from the team.
