According to several e-mailers, there are the packages the Yankee and Steiner Sports will be offering that include seats. They range in price from $1,500 to $1,950.

Each packages includes “a generic pair of Yankee Stadium seats.” The add-ons include autographed items from Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera and Yogi Berra, a collage, a $100 gift certificate and a “Yankee Stadium free gift.”

There also is going to be an on-line auction of “unique items.”

Meanwhile, Lonn Trost says the Stadium is fine and no changes are planned for this year. Sam Borden has the story up on

On the issue of allowing regular fans and kids to watch batting practice from the field level, here is what Trost had to say: “If you purchased a suite, do you want people in your suite? If you purchased a house, do you want people in your house?”

Wow. That’s pretty much all the evidence you need about the caste system at the new Stadium. There is a Stadium for the wealthy and there is a Stadium for everybody else.

You know what is really sad about the whole thing? None of those people even watch BP. The entire area is largely empty before the game.
