this may be the year (like in 2008/2009) where I start watching a lot of redsox yankee games in yankee stadium. their new ticketmaster system is very convenient. there seems to be a lot of reasonably priced tickets even with premium games. that was the way it was before, you could always get great face value tickets online even with redsox yankee games, maybe it'll be that way this year too.
I was actually at the last game played in the old stadium (vs the redsox with giambi getting winning walk off hit). I was going to put the ticket stubs on eBay but I use old tickets for bookmarks. I remember going to a bunch of games in 2008 then 2009 and sitting all over the place in the old stadium. the premium $300 tickets (with waitresses) on the third baseline that still weren't that good of seats because fans would block your view because you faced into the outfield, the lodge seating (which was great because it was in the shade/covered from rain/blazing sun, and the scary assed $13 seats in the upper tier where you could conceivably tumble down and fall off the grand stand and die because it was so steep. I'm surprised more fans didn't get injured up in the scary assed upper tier seats... they were so steep you kind of had to do a side step going up and down if you weren't confident/drunk.
