The Yankees have no shame about promoting the exclusivity of their new park. Kids cannot watch batting practice from the sweet seats in the outfield.
The complaints about batting practice did not draw much sympathy on Tuesday from Lonn Trost, the club’s chief operating officer, who spoke after a news conference announcing the sale of mementos from the old stadium.
Referring to the high-priced Legends Suite tickets clustered around home plate and the infield, Trost said that it was an area that fans without suite tickets would not be allowed to enter.
“If you purchase a suite, do you want somebody in your suite?” Trost said in remarks reported by The Associated Press. “If you purchase a home, do you want somebody in your home?”
Yikes. Nobody is likely to apply the term “friendly confines” to the mallpark in the Bronx.
