THE NEW YORK YANKEES.
The New York Yankees is an American baseball team based in the Bronx, New York. The club was founded in Baltimore, Maryland in 1901. During its formation, it went by the name Baltimore Orioles. It was moved to New York City in 1903 as the New York Highlanders before eventually changing to the Yankees.
The club enjoys one of the most expensive stadiums ever constructed in the USA but are facing pressures to sell their naming rights to the brand new stadium. The stadium was constructed by the help of tax-exempt bonds issued by the New York City and selling the naming rights to the stadium would help protect the tax payers’ money.
Following the announcement of the 2010 full-season ticket license pricing for regular season games at the Yankee stadium, 97% of the tickets were projected to either remain the same or decrease in prices. 41,928 tickets representing an 84% of the stadium capacity would remain the same as the year 2009 while 6,454 tickets, representing 13% would realize a decrease in prices. The remaining 3% of the 50,086 seat capacity of the stadium would experience a price increase. Yankees tickets would range from $5 for obstructed-view bleacher seats to $2,625; the Mets' prices will be from $11 to $695 for opening day and the Yankees series. The ticket policy is however subject to review on a yearly basis.
The Yankees is known as having the seventh highest home attendance by percentage in Major League Baseball in 2012 but for a team whose record has been among the best in baseball most of the year, it's actually shocking that 13 percent of the seats at the Stadium are empty for any given home game.
The luxury suites at the Yankees are magnificent features that enhance guest interaction. In it is a bar area with granite countertops and rich wood paneling, a spacious lounge with comfortable leather furnishing and food and beverages selections consistent with the Yankees standard of excellence....
