Yep there will be scalpers.
Bring an arm + a leg.

Yep there will be scalpers.
Bring an arm + a leg.
There is this one scalper that I buy from sometimes. He usually stands at the top of the stairs that you take to exit the station after getting off the 4 train. He's a black guy in his early 30's, medium build, usually with a Yankees hat on. I've bought off him several times, he always has good tickets and his prices are pretty reasonable.
Two other options would be EBay or Craigslist.
Personally I wouldn't rely on scalpers, either order from Yankees or show up at the ticket booth the day before or grab them off of Craigslist.
I haven't had good experiences with scalpers.
I was wondering if anyone could give me a list of Yankee game throughout the middle of march!?
How easy are they to get tickets for like ON THE DAY.
Also, Im not sure of the NYC football team but i know id like to go see an american sport like baseball which im a fan of or american football so could you give me some football dates throughout the middle of march 2 and again how easy are tickets to get on the day and how much etc
The regular season for Major League Baseball (MLB) doesn't start until the beginning of April. In mid-March, all teams are still playing exhibition games (spring training) in Florida or Arizona. As for American Football (NFL), the season ended with the Superbowl 2 weeks ago and won't begin again until September. Therefore, no regular MLB and definitely no football in the middle of March.
You can get more info (schedule, buying tickets online, etc.) on the Yankees' official website.
As for getting tickets on game day. It all depends on such circumstances as the team they're playing against (rivalries and good opponents are almost always sold out in advance), the day of the week it is (weekends are more likely to be sold out versus weekdays). There will also be scalpers on hand during game day but they charge a premium for those tickets. Good luck and hope you enjoy watching the Yanks win another World Series this year.
whats your opinion of purchasing tickets from touts (scalpers) are they usually genuine? if not do they still get you in AND how pricey are they
Also, how about college football, is that off till september aswell?
also, any chance you could give me a direct link to a list of games in mid march or training or whatever as i cant seem to find anything on the Yankee's site.
Thank you again! x

Having trouble? It took me just one click on the Yankees' official website to get to this.
Bear in mind that those spring training games will not be in NY.
College football's schedule mirrors the pro's, so yes, they too will be off for the summer.
I've never bought tickets from the touts (or scalpers as we call them here), but they don't seem to have a reputation for selling fake tickets, so I think they will be fine. I'm not sure about the price but expect a considerable mark-up(maybe as much as 10X the face value), depending on demand, of course.
Hope that helps.
thanks for that! am excited bout seeing a yankees game live finally!
Matt if you are still planning on going in March i have to break it to you pal, your not gonna see a Yankee game so you may need to book at another time. As for your question, there are loads of tickets on Ebay, check there, i bought Jets and Knicks tickets from there and had no problems.
What is the difference in arena football etc?Originally Posted by ironmike9110
The Arena Football field is a padded surface 85 feet wide and 50 yards long from goal line to goal line, with end zones 8 yards deep. The goal posts are 9 feet apart and the crossbar is 15 feet above field level (compared to 18 1/2 feet and 10 feet, respectively, in NFL and NCAA football).
There are two goal-side rebound nets, 30 feet wide and 32 feet high, at each end of the field. Each rebound net stretches from the outside of an upright, along the end line. The bottom of the net is 8 feet above the ground.
The ball is the same as that used in the National Football League.
There are eight players on the field for each team. They play both offense and defense, except for the quarterback, the kicker, the kick returner, a designated offensive specialist, and two designated defensive specialists. The defensive specialists replace the quarterback and the offensive specialist when a team is on defense.
Arena football allows only one substitution per position per quarter, except in the case of the specialist players.
On offense, four players must line up on the line of scrimmage, and three defensive players must be down linemen. Defensive linemen aren't allowed to stunt or twist. One linebacker is allowed to blitz on either side of the center.
One receiver is allowed to be in forward motion at the snap.
To open a half or to resume play after a score, a team kicks off from its own goal line. If the kick goes out of bounds, it's awarded to the receiving team at the 20-yard line or at the spot where it went out of bounds, whichever is most advantageous.
If a kickoff or missed field goal attempt comes back into the field of play off a rebound net, it can be fielded by the receiving team.
A team is given four downs to move the ball 10 yards for another first down or to score. Punting is not allowed. The offense is given 25 seconds to put the ball into play.
Passing rules are as in college football. A receiver needs to have only one foot in-bounds while making a catch. A forward pass that rebounds from a net remains a live ball and may be legally caught until it touches the playing surface.
Scoring rules are the same as in the NFL and NCAA, with two exceptions: A conversion by drop kick counts 2 points and a field goal by drop kick counts 4 points.
A game is made up of four 15-minute quarters and each team is allowed three timeouts per half. If the score is tied after regulation time, there's a 15-minute overtime period.
Each team gets at least one possession in overtime. If one team is ahead after each team has had a possession, that team wins. If the score is still tied, the overtime becomes sudden death and the first team to score wins.
If the score is still tied after 15 minutes of overtime, the game ends as a tie.
I'm wondering if native New Yorkers think it is safe for a single gal to go to a Yankees Stadium by herself for an evening game. I've got a ticket, and will be heading there by subway from Mid-town. I'm just wondering if someone has thoughts on the subway ride and the neighbourhood. Thank you.
You're probably fine going to a game by yourself. You will get hit on, so just expect it. Also, the worse the seat, the more obnoxious the fans in general.
You're safe as long as you don't wear a Red Sox hat! The Yanks are so popular now that they can draw 50,000 people for a weeknight game against the worst teams in the American League. There are tons of people in the Yankee Stadium neighborhood during game time along with plenty of cops. I recommend taking the No. 4 train up there because significantly more people use this subway line than the B or D. It also runs more frequently so you won't have to wait as much.
