Did you know that there are at least 27 sports teams in North America with kosher stands? You can access the entire list on this DDF thread.
The Yankees may have beat the
ir farm system team Indians once again last night, but it’s hard not to enjoy a game with amenities like express entry to Yankee Stadium, complimentary all-you-can-eat gourmet kosher food and desserts (the menu changes nightly) in the exclusive dining areas or delivered by waiters to your seats, drinks, and cushioned seats with plenty of legroom. The food is a whole lot better than the junk they serve at the regular kosher stand.
With a face value per seat in the $1,000 ballpark it’s not something I’d ever dream of paying (though you can likely scalp tickets for a fraction of that), but if the opportunity arises for you to sit in the Legends Suite I wouldn’t pass it up! I had the opportunity to sit in section 17b last night which is really great as it’s the closest you can get to home plate without having your view obstructed by the protective netting, just be ready to nab a foul ball if it comes your way!
Then again a Yankees fan may just want to attend an away game in Cleveland where a front row seat has a face value of less than $100 and the flight from NYC is just 9,000 BA Avios round-trip. You can bring a whole lot of food to the game with all the extra change in your pocket. Or you can even splurge and sit in the dugout suite in Cleveland for a fraction of the Legends Suites ticket price.
Still, sitting in the Legends Suite is definitely an incredible way to experience a ballgame (and yes, the peanuts and crackerjack are on the house as well)
