Some lucky fans:
Steve Cohen of Briarcliff Manor, N.Y., wanted a 15-game midweek plan (to replace a discontinued eight-game plan behind home plate), but was offered four tickets in a Friday night plan that he told the team conflicted with his weekend schedule. But he said he persevered and got four $20 tickets for 15 midweek games, high above right field. Cohen said that the salesman said “don’t tell anybody” about the switch.
Gerry Grossman, a salesman from Manhattan, said he and a friend were enraged at being offered a 20-game plan for two seats near the left-field foul pole for $85 each (without postseason-ticket rights) after being at field level, looking at left field, for $55 last year (with postseason), under a 46-game plan.....
He said he received inadequate answers from Yankee ticket sales people about why two other fans, whom he said had lesser seniority, got a 41-game plan, or if seniority really mattered at all. On Thursday, his persistence was rewarded: he got a 41-game plan at $50 a ticket, on the second level, in a distant left-field burg, with postseason rights.
Some partial-season-ticket holders are angry at being assigned to seats far from the equivalent in the old stadium and at losing postseason ticket rights.
