This was my first playoff game, since my friend was able to get some great tickets off Yankees.com. We knew the section they were in, but we had no idea that we were seated directly behind the cameraman. This was pretty much the view I had, which was something I wasn't pleased with since these tickets had a face-value price at $200.
I went to the ticket box to voice my displeasure. The man behind the window gave me very few options. To move my seats to the only available seats which were in the Legends section. Most know the price one pays to sit in the Legends seats. They told me I would have to pay the difference. The only other option was to keep the ticket, or to get a refund and be escorted out of the stadium.
I asked to speak with a manager. After waiting 15-20 minutes, the man finally decided to show up. Not sure what he was doing, but from what we could all see the guys in the ticket sales were enjoying the football game that was on in their office. Those waiting we not pleased to say the least.
Don't get me wrong. I am so thankful to have been at the stadium to see them clinch. But to charge someone $200 for this view is horrible. The Yankees need to change this. I can't even imagine how much this ticket goes for during the World Series. The mere fact they had the audacity to put seats behind the camera station is horrible.
I guess this is the 'Thank You' the Yankees gave me for supporting their ballclub. Next time, I hope Lonn Trost enjoys the ball game from the seat I had to sit in.
