Winners of an astounding 27 World Series championships and home to many of the greatest players to ever play the game, the New York Yankees are truly an iconic sports team – perhaps the greatest ever. No trip to NYC would be complete without a visit to the Bronx to see the Yankees in action with discount tickets from ShowTickets.com. The Yankees play at the new Yankee Stadium, which opened in 2009 and replaced the 1923 stadium that stood next door. Many of the all-time greatest players wore Yankee pinstripes – famous names like Babe Ruth, Roger Maris, Yogi Bera, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Mickey Mantle, Thurman Munson, and Reggie Jackson. Then there are the more recent Yankee greats like Mariano Rivera and Derek Jeter.
A day at Yankee Stadium means taking in all the history while enjoying the one of the best ballparks to see a game. Explore the stadium and visit the Great Hall, which features memorabilia from the storied history of the Bronx Bombers, or stroll through Monument Park before the game to see plaques honoring the team’s greatest players. Between innings be sure to run by one of the stadium shops for great apparel and memorabilia.
There’s also plenty to eat at Yankee Stadium. Of course you can always get your hotdog and popcorn, but the ballpark offers a tasty assortment of cuisine for guests to enjoy. There’s Parm sandwich shop, Lobel’s for hand-carved steak sandwiches, and Brother Jimmy's BBQ. There’s sushi and pizza and so much more to try while having fun at the game.
Yankee Stadium is a cultural icon, a living museum resurrecting memories of the past while continuing to serve as the stage for the present. Be a part of the legacy of baseball’s greatest franchise while on your New York vacation.
