NEW YORK (AP) - Sitting in new Yankee Stadium on the first day
fans came to the $1.5 billion ballpark, general partner Hal Steinbrenner admits some tickets might be overpriced given the recession.
The Yankees set prices for its premium Legends Suites seats 13 months ago and sold them for $500-$2,500 as part of season tickets.
According to the team's Web site, some of those seats remain
available for individual games, when the prices goes up to $2,625.
"I think if anybody in any business had known where this economy was going to go, they would have done things differently,"
Steinbrenner said. "Look, there's no doubt small amounts of our
tickets might be overpriced."
