    On TV I saw a vendor in the Fenway stands selling Clam Chowder ... when will the Yankees start selling soup? Manhattan Clam Chowder or Matzoh Ball Soup would be very NY flavors.

    I'll take a $15 soup to go with my $4.17 ticket please

    They would probably charge $25 for soup.

    I was surprised at the cost of the hot chocolate (sold by a vendor who came down into the seats), but it was a huge, hot mugful, and it was just what my friend and I needed at that point in the game. It was worth every penny.

    I was there on opening night and asked for hot chocolate from one of the "Fan Favorites" stands. They were out, but they had coffee. That was only $5.

    Just noticed this when I was managing some tickets

    The Yankees may refuse to sell to any person/entity that violates New York law and may revoke any ticket license relating to any ticket account that violates New York law. Please be advised that THE RESALE OF FIVE (5) OR MORE TICKETS WITHOUT HAVING FIRST PROCURED A LICENSE FROM THE NEW YORK SECRETARY OF STATE IS UNLAWFUL AND PUNISHABLE BY IMPRISONMENT OF UP TO ONE (1) YEAR AND FINES OF UP TO $4,000.00 OR MORE. The Yankees reserve the right to require proof of a properly issued New York Ticket Reseller License.

    Someone posted that a few days ago, but I had not seen the revoking license bit. From a layman's perspective, that ironically seems illegal on the part of the Yankees. The analogy I would use is the tenant who stops paying rent. You have the right to evict him but you can't touch his stuff or kick him out until the courts rule that he is in violation of the lease and after full due process.

    Resellers may be limited to reselling 5 tickets per game without a license (officially, but to my knowledge zero people have ever been prosecuted), however it is not up to the Yankees to enforce that law. Further, under that very same quoted law (New York Arts and Cultural Affairs 25.30), the Yankees would be committing a misdemeanor by revoking or denying tickets based on a consumer reselling tickets. Teams are not allowed to punish you in any way for reselling tickets at any price.

    I would also make the observation that the Yankees are shooting themselves in the foot. They have a delusional sense of valuation for their tickets, prices for the vast majority of seats are at or above market value. They should be kissing the feet of people who buy 5+ tickets for resale as they are unpaid armies of amateur ticket brokers pushing their product.

    Delusional is a good word to describe their ticketing regime.
    Back at the track, at the wall, we are tied!

    Thank you for posting the legal citation, New York Arts and Cultural Affairs 25.30

    Re: The StubHub Thread

    Is there any way to tell on vivid/stubhub which field MVP come with club access? Vivid calls them "Field Dugout" but none of the notes have any mention whatsoever of the MVP club

    Bleachers section 202, two tickets I just paid $38 total (fees included) vs Houston on the 29th. Not mad one bit for a Tues night.

    I could have had first-row Section 108 (RF corner, practically on the field with Judge) but I didn't want to drop $150. Over $30 worth of fees .

    There are a lot of Yankee discounts for Houston series (Memorial day hangover) so downward pressure on prices and creates bargains. Nice buy.

    I didn't connect the date until I questioned why they were playing at 1:05 the day before. Was still surprised to see them so cheap, being that it's vs Houston.

    All my GF cares about is getting her bucket of chicken tenders and fries lol. I'm just happy to finally get to a game this season.

    Re: The StubHub Thread

    I was just looking at my SH listings and noticed that a previously unsold game had now been sold. However, I was not notified by email at the time of the sale and still have not been notified. Has anyone else experienced this? Many thanks!

    Yes, it just happened to me yesterday. I will call their 800 number shortly to ask why.
