Yankees announce ticket prices for 2014

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Oct 21, 2013 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Here’s the announcement from the Yankees:

James GandolfiniThe New York Yankees today announced 2014 full-season ticket license pricing for regular season games at Yankee Stadium. Prices for 96 percent of tickets will either remain the same or decrease.

Approximately 39,000 tickets (78 percent) will have the same price in 2014 as they had in 2013, while approximately 9,000 tickets (18 percent) will have a decrease in price. There are approximately 2,000 tickets (four percent) that will have an increase in price.

All seats in the Grandstand and all seats with non-obstructed views in the Bleachers will not have a change in ticket price.

Terrace Level ticket prices in Sections 305, 306, 307, 332B, 333 and 334 will decrease from $40 to $28, and ticket prices in Sections 313, 314, 326 and 327 will decrease from $55 to $50. There will be no change in pricing for all other 2014 Terrace Level tickets.

In the Main Level, ticket prices in Sections 210 and 229 will decrease from $70 to $50, while ticket prices in Sections 216, 217, 223, 224 and 230 will decrease by $5 each.

Beginning with the 2014 season, seats in Sections 116 through 124 (Rows 12-21) will be known as Field MVP Club seats. Full-season licensees in these locations will have their ticket prices decrease from $260 per game in 2013 to $235 per game next season. Additionally, these licensees will have access to the Field MVP Club Lounge, which is currently being constructed and scheduled to open on Opening Day 2014. Located on the Field Level Concourse, this new space has been developed with the successful Delta SKY360° Suite redesign in mind.

Other Field Level ticket license pricing in Sections 114A through 126 will decrease in amounts ranging from $15 to $25 per ticket per game.

Also for 2014, the Yankees will be introducing 10 new Outdoor Suite Boxes, which will be ­­located in Field MVP Sections 117A, 117B, 122 and 123. Each of these outdoor suites will provide seating for six to eight people. These suites will be available on a full-season basis.

As part of other renovations, the Home Plate Team Store, which is the largest retail location in Yankee Stadium, will be transformed to create an improved experience for fans.

The only Yankee Stadium tickets that are increasing in price are Field Level Section 132 tickets, Main Level Section 215 and 225 tickets and obstructed view Bleacher tickets in Sections 201 and 239.

Fans can purchase 2014 season tickets by visiting yankees.com or calling 212-YANKEES (926-5337). Those with questions may call the preceding number or email seasontickets@yankees.com. Fans with visual impairments and/or who are blind should call (718) 579-4595 (TTY).

A date has yet to be determined for the on-sale of 2014 individual-game tickets.

    Gardner outproduces his cost.

    Yet, I don’t blame anyone for disliking Gardner.

    He’s a dislikeable individual.

  2. Russell Munson October 21st, 2013 at 4:15 pm

    I think Gardner deserves credit for turning himself from a non-prospect to a viable major leaguer, whatever his limitations.

  3. Manhattan Project October 21st, 2013 at 4:19 pm

    He definitely deserves credit, however, he’s never learned to read pickoff moves and steal bases…

    If he could , he’d be significantly more valuable to the team.

  4. Russell Munson October 21st, 2013 at 4:21 pm

    Wish the Yankees would have brought Davey Lopes in to give Gardner some coaching on baserunning.

  5. Warning Track Power October 21st, 2013 at 4:26 pm

    I like Gardner a lot. I hope the Yankees keep him around for years or until
    he can be traded for a HUGE need on the team.

  6. bruceb October 21st, 2013 at 4:37 pm

    More suites for the suits. Or as Manchester United footballer Roy Keane once described them, “the prawn sandwich brigade.”

    Now that core is gone and they don’t appear to have many capable youngsters ready to contribute.
    ======================
    The farm is being rebuilt and should arrive shortly.
    Pitching and catching appear to be the priority.
    We have other young talent as well.

    ——

    Pitching and catching was the priority in 2005. It is now almost 2014.

    Stockpiling pitchers and catchers (for their own use as well as chips to use in trades) was a good strategy back then but times have changed and this organization has failed to adapt.

    Most sensible fans were willing to be patient with their farm system but 8-9 years is a long time and they don’t appear to be better off than they were in 2005.

    There doesn’t appear to be any real accountability for such mediocre results during that span.

    Maybe ESPN has it right and they were really doing some soul searching regarding player development.

    But one of the primary culprits of such underwhelming results is not considered to be in front of the firing squad (Cashman) so we can only hope it gets better.

    like to SD for Chase Headley

  9. mick October 21st, 2013 at 5:01 pm

    Perhaps we were not proactive, drunk with the success of our so-called dynasty, and did not replenish the farm with any gusto.
    It had never been our wont in the past and perhaps we got lucky with Jeter, Bernie, Mo and Po.
    It seems like we have learned a lesson, perhaps late.
    It was always easier to trade and purchase FA’s.
    George had little patience and developed this culture.
    Hopefully this phase won’t last long and as our farm develops, we get back to our spending ways.

  10. joeman October 21st, 2013 at 5:03 pm

    question was asked earlier about what the RS will do when they play in St Lou..Ortiz will play 1st base and either Napoli will sit if he doesn’t catch…he caught 72 games in 12 but none this year

  11. pkyankfan69 October 21st, 2013 at 5:05 pm

    Why would be trade Gardner for Headley?

    2013 GGBG – .273/.344/.416/.760 + Gold Glover caliber CF play
    2013 Headley – .250/.347/.400/.747

    Both are FA at the end of the year, Headley will be more expensive next year.

    Headley’s tremendous 2012 appears to be a career year for him.

  12. Manhattan Project October 21st, 2013 at 5:05 pm

    Joeman, agreed on your last post from the previous thread.

    He is liked because he’s currently cost-efficient

    LOL all you want… They put up pretty similar #’s last year except Gardner is an elite defender. You love to rip Gardy for his K’s, Headley had more K’s in less AB’s while hitting a whopping 5 more HR. Your hate for Gardy makes it impossible for you to have a rational conversation about it.

  16. yankeefeminista October 21st, 2013 at 5:15 pm

  19. pkyankfan69 October 21st, 2013 at 5:20 pm

    Pretty sure the Yanks would happily sign Gardy to 4 years – $32M.

    4 years – $8M per year is much better value than Ellsbury @ 5 years – $100M

    They did get lucky with Jeter, Mo, Po, Bernie, and Pettitte.

    But they also created some of their own luck by putting much more stock into the farm with Stick and Showalter in charge.

    This dynasty happened in large part because The Boss wasn’t in charge for a few years.

    The Boss was in a league of his own regarding the business side of baseball. But he was the last guy I wanted making baseball decisions regarding player development and the roster.

    Ellsbury isn’t worth that but one thing is for sure he’s a lot better than BG

  23. Giuseppe Franco October 21st, 2013 at 5:23 pm

    For a guy who has a below average arm, Gardner seems to get the most out of it with accurate throws and more than his share of assists.

  24. joeman October 21st, 2013 at 5:25 pm

    enough talk about Brett..all these years I’m only kidding about him..Glad he’s on the team and I hope they lock him up this season before he becomes a FA

  25. mick October 21st, 2013 at 5:29 pm

    Most of George’s moves were hit and miss.
    Guys like Catfish and Reggie were proven winners.
    Others like Winfield, Baylor and Henderson among others never won here.
    Then again, they had no pitching in the 80′s.

    Developing a farm system has to be a full time job,part of the culture, not on a lark . It never was with the Yankees. It never had to be.

    Perhaps it was Michael that took charge and helped develop our core of 20 years.

    Why he didn’t continue to do so is the question.

  26. kd October 21st, 2013 at 5:42 pm

    it could be worse, the yankees could have signed pujuls. he has 8/213 left on his deal

    that’s more than any free agent is going to make in a long time

  29. Against All Odds October 21st, 2013 at 6:07 pm

    Sure , they will defend their position by saying we started too late or not at all, to develop a farm to replace the aging core.
    Are they wrong? No

    ——————–

    Yes, they started this back in 05.

    We’re going on 9 yrs here.

  30. jacksquat October 21st, 2013 at 6:22 pm

    I guess the obstructed view seats were popular?

  31. Shame Spencer October 21st, 2013 at 6:24 pm

    Interesting that a chunk of the prices are being reduced… but of course, more suites are being added and the majority of the prices are staying the same. I guess this is as close to a mea culpa as well get.

    Did I read that correctly, though? The obstructed view seats are going up? The fact that those seats even exist is an embarrassment.

    ==============================
    Long term overpays on contracts. Why not?

  33. blake October 21st, 2013 at 6:48 pm

    If the Yankees want to get under the cap and stay efficient then it’s critical that they produce more Gardners……Gardner isn’t a star but he’s a legit big leaguer and he fills a roster spot cheaply.

    He’s the type of guy that can balance out big contracts……the Yanks have to start producing some regular players…..they don’t have to be stars they just have to be real major league caliber players.

  34. mick October 21st, 2013 at 6:48 pm

    78% of tickets stay the same
    18% decrease (worst seats available)
    4% go up (better seats they would have sold anyway)
    10 new outdoor suite boxes were built.

    So if they sell more of the worse tix as they are cheaper and
    they sell their new boxes out
    they will make more money than last year.

  35. mick October 21st, 2013 at 6:50 pm

    they don’t have to be stars they just have to be real major league caliber players.
    ===============================
    who in the minors would fit this bill in the future?
    heathcott, austin, sanchez etc…
    not to mention the wealth of pitching.

    “Doreen – I’d love to take your tree falling in the woods approach. It’s funny though… generally I consider myself a Yankee fan more than a baseball fan but I realize during the playoffs – when I can’t stop watching, even without them playing – how much I really love the game.”

    I agree with you Shame. Some of the best baseball is played during the postseason, and personally when the Yankees are in it, I miss the complete beauty of it and the nuances and everything else that makes it what it is, because I am more focused on the Yankees winning than anything else. I don’t think that’s unusual as much as it’s unfortunate. When the Yanks aren’t in it, it’s about as stress-free as it can be, and I can appreciate the totality of the game.

    *********************

    “when the yankees lose in the ALCS i have a harder time watching the WS, but since the yankees season effectively ended in August, it’s been much easier this year to get over it and get into PS baseball for me.”

    Agree with this too. Sux being in it will always put a bit of a damper on things, but because of their horrific decent that preceded this season, a lot of the howling and ballyhooing from Sux fans has been toned way down. That makes it a lot nicer for me since I’m surrounded by them!

    ********************

    “I think most of us would root for the Taliban against the Red Sox.”

    Just most?

    *******************

    “I’m no a Arod fan, he’s a cheater and he has been for years”

    “plain and simple if Arod was a Red Sox you all would be calling for a lifetime suspension”

    “Arod admitted to use then said he would stop..something like judge me going forward, in which he never stopped”

    Yes to all.

    ***********************

    “Randy,

    What difference does it make what the drug is?”

    Right. Because it’s a violation of the policy, period. It shouldn’t make any difference – and it doesn’t.

    **********************

    “Counting on Tex to regain his form is like counting on a frog to grow feathers”

    :lol:

    ***********************

    Just a thought here about MLB’s evidence, yada yada yada. In deciding how many games, if any, Arod should be suspended, the arbitrator will take a look at all of the evidence that MLB brings forward. Some of you are saying that he shouldn’t get any more than 50 – if that – since this will be his first violation. If the arbitrator decides not to look at anything more than the first violation, it is possible that he gets 50 games. If the arbitrator is allowed to look at other factors and takes into account that Arod tried to pay off Boesch, he may feel more than 50 games is warranted.

    In fairness, I think people need to ask themselves whether they would want a player not on the Yankees to receive only 50 games, if the circumstances were the same as they are with Arod. (At some point we will hopefully know all the circumstances but I believe that MLB’s statement of charges will probably be those presented to the arbitrator. Whether he believes the charges or feels that all of the charges, even with back-up evidence, should be considered, is something we just don’t know.)

    I think the Yankees should have devised a plan to reduce payroll over a period of 4 or 5 years……not over 1 or 2. When you force something like this before the organization is ready then inevitablyyou are going to pass on players you could have used and you’re gonna put more faith in young players before they are ready than you should

  45. yankinvegas October 21st, 2013 at 7:12 pm

    The Yankees have drafted and signed many good young players in the past few years. The problem has been with their development. The Yankees have been too cautious. They haven’t challenged kids with rapid advancement.
    They have also been very unlucky on the injury front. Hopefully that worm will turn immediately.
    Also the total neglect of the Cuban and Japanese marketplace is very disturbing. That must change.
    I think that all Yankees fans feelings are a little exaggerated now because we are having to read constant praise of Boston. Many untruths.
    Where was the criticism from all these hack writers when Boston missed the playoffs 3 seasons in a row? It got so one-sided that Yankees TV announcer had the Boston manager do a paid spot on his radio show every week in 2012.
    Hopefully the Red Sox will lose to StL and all their PED cheaters will be uncovered in an investigation led by ESPN – it’s all the meds I take!! Forgive my hallucinations.
    And in 2014 the Red Sox plethora of guys who are having fluke seasons this years will revert to the norm ann that disgusting nteam will just go away.

  46. mick October 21st, 2013 at 7:22 pm

    We make the playoffs every year (08 excluded) till now and again I ask the question, where would these prospects have fit?

    The only reason for the redsox emergence was their massive trade.

    Maybe the sense of urgency was muted as we were in the mode of winning every year and it was never really the Yankee way to depend on youth.

  47. joeman October 21st, 2013 at 7:23 pm

    Sox in 6

  48. chicken_stanley October 21st, 2013 at 7:27 pm

    yankinvegas – In 2004, the Sox came up with the identity of “the idiots” which endeared them to the public and their popularity soared. This year, its “the beards” (which really pisses me off – its a thinly veiled way of saying “we’re the anti-Yankees). The beards are getting so much publicity and the media is spinning it into such a “feel good” story… I can only hope a backlash develops and drops the Sox back into their proper place

  49. mick October 21st, 2013 at 7:30 pm

    the beards are only there to hide the acne which steroids produce

  50. chicken_stanley October 21st, 2013 at 7:33 pm

  51. yankeefeminista October 21st, 2013 at 7:34 pm

    18% decrease (worst seats available)

    Of the seats that decreased, albeit they are only $5 less, seats in sections 216, 217, 223, 224 are really good seats. I sit in 224 for the 2009 World Series. Seats rocked. And the home plate sides of 314, 326 are not too shabby either.

  52. yankeefeminista October 21st, 2013 at 7:35 pm

    I *sat in 224

  53. chicken_stanley October 21st, 2013 at 7:35 pm

    Mick – apparently steriods causes acne on the back also, which raises the question – are they just keeping their shirts on or are they cultivating the hair there as well? :)

  54. yankeefeminista October 21st, 2013 at 7:37 pm

    chicken, how is it then that Alex has no acne? :shock:

  55. chicken_stanley October 21st, 2013 at 7:41 pm

    Hi YF!

    I’ve only had the opportunity to visit NYS for one series against the Tigers in ’12… I sat in the right field bleachers for one game (I can’t remember the section # but it was a few rows behind Bald Vinny). Those seats rocked. On the other hand, for another game I sat about 650 feet away from the plate at the very top of the left field bleachers. Those seats left a little to be desired. The funny thing about the left field seats were the signs posted warning of the danger of thrown bats and balls!

  56. mick October 21st, 2013 at 7:42 pm

    Of the seats that decreased, albeit they are only $5 less, seats in sections 216, 217, 223, 224 are really good seats.
    =============================
    my point was they will make more money by reducing some seats, which should increase att.,
    and concession returns, and by adding 10 new suites

  57. chicken_stanley October 21st, 2013 at 7:42 pm

    YF – per Alex – Touche! :)

  58. mick October 21st, 2013 at 7:43 pm

    different drugs have different effects.
    alex would never take one that would damage his pretty face.

  59. chicken_stanley October 21st, 2013 at 7:46 pm

    YF – I have an off the wall question. What keystroke combination do you use for the “surpise” emoticon on your Alex post (to be known going forward as the Victorino emoticon in honor of Shame)?

  60. chicken_stanley October 21st, 2013 at 8:00 pm

    Just to clarify my views on steroids – I have tremendous respect for those of you who are outraged by steroid use. Unfortunately, personally, I’m a bit ambivalent about steroid use. I’m not saying I’m right… its just how I feel.
