From Tyler Kepner:
Fans will now be able to watch batting practice from the seats along the left- and right-field lines and in the outfield (Sections 129 to 136 and 103 to 111).
Alice McGillion, a spokeswoman for the Yankees, said that after the team received complaints it looked at the policy at the old Yankee Stadium. There, fans that had any field level seat could watch batting practice there.
“We liberalized the policy even more,” she said. “This is part of living in a new home and making adjustments. It’s only been a month.”
According to the new rules, posted on the Yankees’ Web site under the heading Batting Practice, fans can watch batting practice starting three hours before the start of each home game. Fans can stay on the field level and in the bleachers until the players leave the field or 1 hour 45 minutes after the gates open. Then “all fans will be asked to return their respective seats.”
Fans will still not be able to get to the field by way of the luxury box seats closest to home plate and the dugouts. Those are only for premium ticket holders. Safety nets are also installed there during batting practice that would prevent fans from catching a ball.
We discussed this yesterday, and most of us agreed that this was something that they could fix easily. Let’s see if this satisfies people. I’m not holding my breath. I’m sure the story in most papers will be something like “Yankees keep luxury seats empty for BP.”
