If you’re interested in watching a baseball game in New York then you should go to the Yankee Stadium and see the Yankees. The NY Yankees are one of the most successful sport clubs in the world and they have won more titles than any other US major professional sports franchise.
Baseball is by far the most popular sport in the Dominican Republic so I was pretty familiar with the rules, players and MLB teams. The best part was to see before the game the celebration of the 20th anniversary of the 1998 Championship team with an on-field reunion with players from the ‘90s including Andy Pettitte, Mariano Rivera, Bernie Williams, Joe Torres and a video from Derek Jeter, perhaps the most beloved NY athlete of the last few decades.
General Tickets go from as low as $10, however, it normally depends on which is the opponent team, and the location of your seat. If the game is during the afternoon, make sure you get a seat in the shade. The new Yankee Stadium is easy to reach by taking MTA Trains B,D or 4 until 161th ST – Yankee Stadium Station in the Bronx. It doesn’t take longer than 30-40 minutes from Midtown.
In New York there are two MLB teams: The NY Yankees and the NY Mets, both are great teams and even better when they play against each other (known as The Subway Series). So if you are in the city and you have the chance to go to a ball game, go for it! You’ll have an amazing time!
