This release from the Yankees today:

NEW YORK YANKEES TO TURN BACK THE CLOCK ON VARIOUS TICKET PRICES FOR APRIL 3-4 EXHIBITION GAMES VS. CUBS; TICKETS FREE FOR FULL-SEASON PLAN HOLDERS, OTHERS TO RANGE FROM 25 cents TO $50

The New York Yankees announced today that full-season ticket licensees will receive complimentary tickets for the first exhibition games to be played in the new Yankee Stadium on April 3-4 vs. the Chicago Cubs, while partial-plan holders will receive the first opportunity to purchase tickets thereafter, via a pre-on-sale (restrictions apply). Individual-game ticket prices will not exceed $50 for either game.

For the inaugural exhibition contests, bleachers tickets will be priced at 25 cents, and grandstand tickets will be priced at $1.10—the same prices they were on April 18, 1923, the day the original Yankee Stadium opened. Tickets on the Terrace Level will cost between $20-35, tickets on the Main Level will be $20-45, and tickets on the Field Level will range from $45-$50.

Remaining tickets, subject to availability, will go on sale to the general public at a date to be determined in the future.

“To express our gratitude toward our full-season ticket licensees, we are offering tickets for these two exhibition games at no cost to them,” said Yankees Chief Operating Officer Lonn Trost. “The balance of tickets will be sold first to our partial-plan holders, then to the general public, at vastly reduced rates compared to the regular season. Using such a pricing model for these games allows us to thank our fans for their continued loyalty and introduce them to baseball’s new grand cathedral.”
