Despite Injuries, New York Yankees Tickets Still One of the Most Expensive in Baseball

With a host of injuries and departures, the 2013 version of the New York Yankees looks markedly different from the rosters of years past. With Derek Jeter inevitable trip to the DL looming, there will only be two players from last year’s opening day lineup taking the field at Yankee Stadium on April 1st to open the 2013 season—second baseman Robinson Cano and outfielder Brett Gardner. Many pundits, bloggers, and analysts have already counted them out. However, the Yankees fan and ticket buyer, isn’t counting them out just yet. Currently, New York Yankees tickets at Yankee Stadium in 2013 rank 4th in terms of average price across baseball, and are actually 11% more expensive than they were at this point last year.
