Michael Kay has really upset our family ! 8/7/2009

\r Michael Kay has really upset our family ! I am not sure if im contacting the right dept. however, i have a major problem with with the way Michael Kay talks during broadcastings. Last night for instance, i was watching the Yankee / Boston game and Michael Kay comes out with the words ( offensive ORJY ) I spelt the word wrong due to the fact that when i went to send this email your site wouldnt even let me send it cause it was an inappropiet word ! what does that tell you? He used that phrase to describe the yankees hitting during the game. What the hell is wrong with this guy , im in a room with kids watching this game while they keep asking , whats an ORJY , whats an ORJY ?? Does this guy think before he talks? I am a huge yankee fan , whole family is actually and grew up watching them with my dad. However i cant stomach this guy in the broadcast booth and the more peole i talk to sooo feel the same way ! Thank you for your time and hopefully i will get some kind of response from this email .\r \r \r \r \r \r Michael C\r Pros: Love the yankees Cons: Disturbed by Michael Kays comments more

I'm gonna miss this place! 7/3/2008

Sure, Yankee Stadium is not in great shape, and it's not as luxurious as newer ballparks like the new stadium being built across the street. But when you walk into Yankee Stadium, you walk into where some of the greatest moments in baseball history happened, and you really feel the presence of all that incredible history. As a Yankee fan, I always have a great time when I come to a game here, and I'm so glad I'll get to go to one more game before the end of this season. It may be gone soon, but it will always be a special place for baseball fans. more

Greatest ballpark in the world 9/18/2006

I've been to Yankee Stadium over 500 times in my life since I'm a season ticket holder. Even approaching Yankee Stadium you know that something special has happened in that ballpark over the coarse of it's 83 years. Walking into the stadium is like walking into a cathedrial complete with the lights that hang down from the ceilings in the concourses like chandlers. It's a great stadium, greatest fans in sports. Yankees fans get a bad rep, when you are at Yankee Stadium with 55,000 Yankees fans the attention is on baseball, Yankees fans love talking about baseball and are into the game and it's hard to fool Yankees fans because they (we) know the game so well. Very good knowledge of the game. And all of this happens in the big ballpark in the Bronx. Pros: Easy access on the subway, greatest fans in the world, nothing beats a baseball game at Yankee Stadium (the baseball palace in the Bronx) Cons: Traffic can be bad if you drive, concourses are a little tight but ok more

Best time of your life 8/24/2006

I grew up in New York and have been to hundreds of yankee games ( i am one of the lucky ones) Going to a yankee game was what we did when we were kids so it was no big deal.. I have never been to a MLB game anywhere else not even the Mets. I was lucky enough to be at a game in 95 when the Yankees returned to the playoffs after a long time! I was sitting in the RIGHT FIELD BLEACHERS. We lost the Settle that year but the headlines in the papers the next day was not about the loss it was ""BLEACHERS CREATURES"" I take Pride in being one of the first Bleacher Creatures! I am 35 years old and have done alot in my life I now live in Miami have traveled all over the world. Hiked in the mountains of Maui, rafted the Grand Canyon, the birth of my son ETC and NOTHING NOTHING compares to that night at Yankee Stadium!! \r \r If you are a baseball fan you must see a game at Yankee stadium! It my book its the only place to see a game!\r \r After Two years of not seeing a game I will be back this Sept for a Yankee - Red Sox game!\r Pros: ITS YANKEE STADIUM!! ENOUGH SAID!! more

A beautifully crafted ballpark 4/4/2006

when opposing players look on it with awe, you know a stadium has to be really special. when comparing it to the corporate named ballparks springing up nowadays, it appears limited in it's concessions. but i dare you to find any other stadium that is easier to get to than the house that ruth built. you just hop on the 4 train and your just a metrocard ride away from watching history unfold nightly. and if you feel like basking in some before the game, check out monument park as there is truly nothing like it. Pros: yankees, mr. steinbrenner, monument park Cons: absolutely nothing more

closest thing to baseball heaven on earth 3/30/2006

If there's baseball in heaven, I bet the stadium looks a lot like Yankee Stadium. Yes, it's old. Yes, it's seen better days. No, it doesn't offer the haute cuisine of the newer ballparks. But more big games have been played and won in this stadium than anywhere else. The Yankees are the winningest team in the history of American professional sports, and that alone is worth the price of admission. Take the tour of Monument Park and feel baseball history come alive. GO YANKS! Pros: loaded with history, great hot dogs, world's best fans Cons: expensive more

User review by jimr1cos 3/29/2006

I grew up two miles from the ""Big Ballpark"", as Red Barber called it. The neighborhood was ugly, bit subway access was excellent, and the Sabrett's doggies were the best. To get a senses of the Stadium's history one can simply listen to the PA voice of Bob Sheppard, who has been there since I was ten years old. Better yet, recall Roger Clemens going to Monument Park to salute the Babe and Lou before his home field starts. Best of all, I was there as a CYO freebie fan the day the Mick banged a collosal rocket off the old upper deck facade, the closest thing to a fair ball ever launched out of the original park. more

Great Place to See a Game 3/29/2006

Yankee Stadium is a must see. It is great to see all the legends in Monument Park, hear the Bleacher Creatures shout role call and experience the atmosphere of Yankee Stadium. The lower part of Yankees Stadium is orginial. There is always a big crowd on hand. There are plenty of bars along River Ave. The only negative is traffic. If you drive in, then you might sit in traffic on the George Washington Bridge for a little while. But it is not that bad. There is plenty of parking, but I would suggest finding a lot and not parking in the parking deck b/c it may take you forty-five minutes to get out of the deck. Yankee Stadium seats about 55,000 and the 2005 average attendance per game was 50,000. Also, drink at one of the bars outside Yankee Stadium b/c it does cost about $9 per beer. Pros: Atmosphere, Parking, Life around Stadium Cons: Food, Beer Prices, Traffic more

Yankee stadium is way overrated! 5/28/2005

Yankee stadium is way way overated and here's why 1. Steinbrenner and company did a terrible remodeling during the 70's instead of keeping the charm and character of the stadium they ruined it. 2. There is almost no where to go to eat and drink before or after the game (very few options here) 3. Paying 10 dollars for a lousy domstic beer is hard to swallow 4. there are so many bad seats in this plac(unless your a corporate boy) the fans get screwed here as well. 5. The yankee fans are the biggest cry babies I have seen so far in my travels, however I do give them credit for understanding the game. Pros: the Subway, its New York that says it all. in spite of steinbrenner there is a lot of history here see. Pros: Its new York!, the subway, the history Cons: the stadium, way overpriced beer, to many bad seats more

Yankee Stadium was filthy 4/13/2005

I toured the baseball stadiums in the Northern Atlantic area last year. I was shocked that Yankee Stadium was a filthy pig sty. I have been to a number of Stadiums across the country, but I cannot recommend this stadium to anyone. Yes, it has the history and mystic that make the Yankees; but as far as wanting to take someone to the game, never again. Sorry. Pros: Great Team, Nice view of field Cons: Filthy, Cramped seating more

I expected more...I wouldn't recommend going... 4/13/2005

Going to a game at Yankee stadium, I felt strangely detached from the game. We parked in the shadiest of lots, couldn't see the field, and my hot dog was cold. There was nothing to do beforehand, and afterwards I wanted to just find my car and get the hell out of there. Overall, I wasn't impressed Pros: Cheap ticket Cons: Parking, Location , Concessions more

No Better Place 7/19/2004

There is no better place to watch a game than The Stadium. Between Monument Park and the energy of the crowd, you get sweeped away in the action. The park may not have hot tubs or world class cuisine, but that's not baseball anyways! The park is truely a classic. Pros: Sights, Atmosphere, History Cons: , Sold out= subway rush more

great place 4/21/2004

as a yankees fan I could not think of a better place to watch a ballgame, great sightlines, tradition and very easy subway ride Pros: fast subway, atmosphere, seat comfort Cons: , too, narrow more

What could be better 12/14/2003

""Crack!"" goes the bat, the crowd gets to their feets as the ball goes flying twards left field. You can hear everyone take a breath in, then the ball lands in the left field bleachers and the crowd exhales their breath with an exuberate ""YAY!"" Yankees Stadium is a true and unique experience that you will remember every time you go even if it is the 300th time. Pros: Friendly, Everything is nearby Cons: High Food Prices, High gift prices more

My ""Yankee"" Blue Heaven 10/14/2003

This is Camelot! It just doesn't get any better. I've been to around 20 ballparks in the USA and Yankee Stadium is the only one that defines baseball. You can feel the history as you walk through the halls and look out at the field. You can almost picture Joe D. rounding third. Yeah the seats aren't exactly comfortable and the concessions are over priced but who doesn't love Uncle Arty the Beer Man? This is the home of the greatest fans in the world. A not to be missed NY experience. Pros: The Yankees!!!!!, The History!!!, The Fans!!! Cons: Parking sucks, Expensive food, Red Sox fans more

new Yankee Stadium 9/19/2003

I think the Yankees do need a new stadium, but not in Manhattan. There is no resaon why they can't play at Shea while the old stadium is torn down and a new one built on the present site. The boss is getting his 3 million paid fans a year, so give us a break and keep history alive. oldny Pros: look of the stadium, easy to get to Cons: parking, getting good tickets, seats more

A Park of Intangibles 8/9/2003

OK, so Yankee Stadium doesn't have the widest aisles and the food is overpriced. What other ballpoark has Monument Park? Where is the grass greener? Who has a more professional PA announcer? Here, atmosphere rules! Pros: History, Great public transit, No names on the unis Cons: Don't drive here more

my church 5/22/2003

as a non-religious person, this is as close to heaven as i can imagine. the history, the moments - it's all incredible - unless you're a red sox fan! Pros: baseball, historical, outdoors Cons: food's expensive, long bathroom lines, outdoors more

New York's Field Of Dreams 4/26/2003

Pure baseball heaven. The Shrine at 161st is a must see for the baseball fan. Out of my top 5 parks I put Yankee Stadium 1st with Wrigley a close 2nd. The fans are the best in baseball, even those bleacher creatures who I enjoy sitting with for only 8 bucks. The neighborhood has gotten much better for 1st time visitors. Take the #4 train from the city (Manhattan) or the D. If you love beer at a ball game drink before you go in if you have bleacher seats. And take the monuments tour before the ballgame, it's available once the gates open up. Overall, enjoy being at Babe's house. Pros: The Yankees, The seats, The neighborhood Cons: Red Sox fans, no beer in bleachers more

  • Yankee Stadium may have moved next door, but it's still the best place in town (in the world?) to watch a baseball game. Whether you're perched in the upper deck hanging out with the bleacher...
