A trip to the states wouldn’t seem right if you didn’t take the time to experience the American culture and their love of sports. On our visit to New York we booked some last minute tickets to a New York Yankees vs. Chicago White Sox baseball game. Yankee Stadium is the home ball field of the New York Yankees and is located in the Bronx, not far out of the city. We had such a fun afternoon and evening learning about baseball and supporting the New York Yankees.
There are a number of ways to purchase your tickets, we opted to buy ours online at ticketmaster.com which was a simple, straightforward process. Yankee stadium is absolutely enormous and seats over 50,000 spectators. We caught public transport to the game which was the best option as the subway is quick, cheap and easy! It was really easy to get the subway after the game as well and make our way back to the hotel.
We didn’t know what was happening a lot of the time and it was a really long game but we still loved it! We were initially sat up near the nose-bleed section but as the crowds thinned out, we moved a bit closer to the front.
The atmosphere was wild and the fans were loving every moment of it. The stadium was filled with massive screens that had advertising, videos and constant replays! The stadium had endless advertising from companies such as Metlife, Pepsi, Casio, Delta, cleaners Chicago and NYC maid service.
Even though baseball isn’t my favourite sport, we all really enjoyed the game, the atmosphere and the US baseball experience! If you are visiting the New York I’d highly recommend experiencing the American sporting culture by catching a baseball game at Yankee stadium.
