This news got buried a little bit during last night’s game. Just in case you missed it, here’s the announcement from the Yankees.
Recognizing (Wednesday’s) inclement weather conditions, the New York Yankees announced that they are rewarding all fans with tickets for tonight’s game against the Baltimore Orioles with a free ticket offer.
Fans may redeem their valid April 13, 2011, tickets — regardless of whether they were used to attend tonight’s game — for a free Grandstand Level or Terrace Level ticket at Yankee Stadium for another game this season, subject to availability.
Alternatively, fans may choose to use today’s valid tickets as a coupon for 50 percent off the purchase price of a ticket in any other non-Suite seating location to another game this season, subject to availability.
This free ticket and coupon offer does not include remaining premium games (the Old-Timers’ Day game and all home games played against the Boston Red Sox and New York Mets).
Please note that the Yankees can only accept tickets with valid bar codes for the April 13, 2011, game.
Tickets can be redeemed or presented as a coupon at Yankee Stadium Ticket Windows only starting tomorrow, April 14, 2011, at 10:00 a.m. (open Monday through Saturday from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m., Sunday from 10:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m., and until two (2) hours after the scheduled start time of any regularly scheduled home game).
Just for fun, that’s a picture of Kemba Walker’s first pitch last night
