A New York Yankees and baseball blog first and then other sports.

The Yankees issued a press release detailing the concessions in the New Stadium. They are committed to quality, variety, convenience and value. I don't really buy much in the stadium, I prefer to go to the deli before the games, get my stuff there and bring it in. The problem this year is they won't let you bring stuff in or at least that's what I hear. I may have to buy drinks inside, which is ok, I will just eat my sandwich before I go in. I want to outline the concessions here. The stadium is also opening an hour earlier this year meaning 10 for 1 starts, 4 for 7:00 games, 5 for 8:00 games and 1 for 4:00 games.
