Hey Gang, I'm visiting New York for the first time in about 3 or 4 years and was hoping for advice on how to best purchase tickets for the stadium. I usually buy tickets the minute individual tixs go on sale and hope for the best. Would I get a better deal on Stub Hub? I was comparing prices recently and it seems that the cost is about the same and in some cases more on Stub Hub. Any advice on how to purchase and which seats in the $75-$100 range are best would be most appreciated.

[1] Off the bat, Stub Hub will be more expensive, but the overwhelming experience from last season was that as you got to within 1-2 weeks before each game, the prices on Stub Hub started coming down and usually dropped below face value. For the more expensive seats, this discount was often very substantial, whereas seats like the bleachers and upper reserve usually remained at or above face value. My recommendation would be to see if you can get what you want when the tickets go on sale. If not, I wouldn’t settle, but instead keep monitoring Stubhub.

How many tickets do you need and when are you planning to visit? At $75-100, the terrace seats just to the left and right behind the plate and the field level and main seats in the outfield are all very good. Having said that, the $12 bleachers might be the pound for pound best seat in the house.

I got yer team of the decade right here.

I'll also echo the bleacher seat recommendation.

Thanks for the feedback guys. William, it's just the wife and I and we will be in New York 6/28 through 7/1. The funny thing is the Yanks are playing the Mariners on those dates which happens to be the closest team to me geographically and I try to visit Safeco whenever the Yanks come to Seattle.
Since we don't get back east very often, I will likely buy seats that are closer to the action than the bleachers.
