    Visiting New York in September

    Hi all,

    From september 2nd untill september 7th i'm visiting New York. Now i want to visit a Yankee game, but I barely know anything about baseball. Now I have some questions and I hope any of you can help me out.

    -Did the season already start?
    -Are they any games I should visit during my stay?
    -What does a ticket cost and what ticket should I buy?
    -Where should I buy a ticket and when?
    -Do I need to know anything more?
    -What is the best way to travel to the Stadium from Manhattan?

    Any tips are welcome, thanks!

    You're expecting us to give you the answer and tip you as well? Shouldn't you be tipping us for our service.

    Nonetheless, here are some answers:

    -Did the season already start? Yes, baseball starts in early April and the regular season ends in late September or early November.
    -Are they any games I should visit during my stay? The Yankees play the Red Sox 9/2,3 & 4 and the Royals 9/5,6 & 7. Here is a link to the Yankees schedule: http://newyork.yankees.mlb.com/sched...x.jsp?c_id=nyy
    -What does a ticket cost and what ticket should I buy? That link will have a link to the ticket info on each day. Cost, location, etc.
    -Where should I buy a ticket and when?
    -Do I need to know anything more? No
    -What is the best way to travel to the Stadium from Manhattan? I will defer to another Forum Member to answer this questions for you.

    Depends on where in Manhattan you are coming from, but the answer is almost always to take the subway. The 4 train is on the east side of the island and the B and D are on the west. They'll probably be crowded with baseball fans but it is a lot cheaper than a taxi.

    I've seen some folks take the Metro-North commuter rail directly to from the Yankee Stadium station to Grand Central Terminal after the game, although it is a pretty expensive way to only save 15 minutes of travel time.

    Assuming you're staying at a hotel, the front desk or concierge, if there is one, might be able to give you more detailed directions and recommendations based on where exactly you are. I'd recommend asking them on that one. Have a good time on your trip, Dutchie!

    Where are you staying? The 4 train from Manhattan goes straight to the Stadium. I catch it at 59th and Lexington when I've come up.

    1-Did the season already start?
    2-Are they any games I should visit during my stay?
    3-What does a ticket cost and what ticket should I buy?

    5-Do I need to know anything more?

    I've numbered your questions, and here are the relevant replies:

    If you don't know anything about baseball, then try learning the history of the game:

    baseball-reference.com

    baseballlibrary.com

    baseball-almanac.com

    http://www.negroleaguebaseball.com/history101.html

    https://www.nlbm.com/s/history.htm

    http://mlb.mlb.com/mlb/history/mlb_negro_leagues.jsp

    http://www.nlbpa.com/negro-league-history

    http://blackbaseball.com/

    http://mlb.mlb.com/mlb/history/

    http://espn.go.com/mlb/history

    http://www.thepeoplehistory.com/baseballhistory.html

    http://www.sbnation.com/baseball-history

    http://baseballhall.org/

    You can also ask here about anything relating to baseball. Please post into the appropriate forum and thread.

    1-Every year, the pitchers and catchers report in February. Spring Training begins in March (the Grapefruit League in Florida for east coast teams; the Cactus League in Arizona for the west coast teams). The regular season starts usually on April 1st, and ends around September 30th.

    2-You can see any Yankee game that's on when you arrive.

    3-The cost of tix depends upon where you are staying, how many people are in the party (say, solo or a group of 4 + parking). Add in the cost of hot dogs, other food, beverage, etc

    4-You can buy tix from the Yankee website, from the Yankee clubhouse stores in Manhattan, from Ticketron (I believe), from this website (under the "Ticket Sales" sub-subforum of the Yankee forums), or from StubHub.com. You can buy tickets in advance at any time.

    5-Nope, just post here and enjoy the good company.

    6-As mentioned already, the D train (which runs along 6th Ave) is on the west side; the #4 train (which runs on Lexington Ave) is on the east side.

    Perhaps he meant that he was visiting NYYFans in September.

    That could very well be the case.

    I wouldn't worry just yet. The Dutchmaster is probably targeting late September when he (or she) really should be back at school.

    I was thinking the same thing. However, he could be a loner and prefers it that way.

    I know Dutchie keeps me amused, but I feel I'm being used.

    I'd suggest that you find yourself a rock and roll band that needs a helping hand.

    How bad is the heat/humidity in August and September in New York? Thinking of flying out to NYC to catch a game against the Red Sox in August and September this year.

    The last two years August and September have actually been below normal here temperature wise

    You could simply do what we New Yorkers do (meaning we're from the NYC metro area), and dress for changing weather. If it's very hot, you may need a tan or white wide-brimmed shade hat with holes on the top. If it's chillier at night, then a light jacket may be good.

    If the rain is heavy, you may need waterproof boots. If it's bright and sunny all day, then sneakers or some other casual footwear would be appropriate. Pack thin and very "packable" clothing, dressing for anywhere from 50-95°F and you should be fine. Leave stuff at the hotel which you don't need that day.
