Ari, one of our readers, was at the game last night and sent this photo. It’s of the Field level behind home plate during the ninth inning of a two-run game.

Here’s what he wrote:

“The whole front section was sparse at best, with swaths of empty seats. And the Field Level were I was sitting was 1/3 full, maybe. You could hear people talking about it, and if it hadn’t been the first game I attended at the new Yankee Stadium with my father, it would’ve taken away from the experience.”

This has to be embarrassing to the organization and you have to wonder when Hal Steinbrenner will order some action be taken. I’m not sure what the solution is. If those seats are sold, the Yankees need to figure a way to get unused tickets in the hands of those who want to attend games.

If the tickets aren’t sold, then obviously prices need to be cut to a reasonable amount. But having the upper sections full and the lower section a ghost town really sends a bad message.
