It seems everytime I flip a page in the newspaper, there is another article about angry Yankee fans. Not because the team has been stinking it up on the field, but because of tickets. Everyone is saying that the real fans have been priced out. But I don't believe this is the case...
I think that whomever was the one making these decisions thought about it a completely different way. They probably thought that Yankee fans are the most loyal in the world and would pay a little more for tickets. Sadly, this back fired and its the scalpers and the tourists who are paying top dollar.
I do agree however that something should be at least acknowledged. Ticketmaster should have been looked into by someone (because it was ridiculous the way they handled Yankee tickets). Actually the pricing is not even bad, but it was impossible for most people to get the tickets they wanted at regular price. So really its other people just ripping you off on StubHub and other sites.
My advice to you if you want to get tix that are not ridiculously priced: Find a season ticket holder, alot of time there are games they cant make and are willing to sell you the ticket at an acceptable price and always check StubHub and like sights the day off or even hours before. Who ever is selling the tix would rather break even then eat the ticket. I'm kinda babbling here but I just wanted to explore the topic I guess. LOL
