How would you rate the cost of food and beverages at the ballpark?
What is the must-have food item offered at the ballpark and what makes it so good?
"It's not actually inside the stadium but outside of it: the sausage and peppers are out of this world."
"A N.Y. knish or a black and white cookie."
"I try not to spend a month's paycheck for food at the ballpark. I usually spend $15 on a hamburger, fries and the smallest diet soda they provide. It doesn't even come with a lid, which just serves to aggravate me even more. They have a captive audience. I eat because I get hungry after spending two hours in traffic, another two hours waiting for the game to start, sit through a three hour game, and spend another two to three hours getting back home. Don't forget, this is New York we are talking about, you can't just leave an hour before game time. You still have to go up the NJ Turnpike, get over the bridge and try your best to park in the same zip code."
"If you go to Yankee Stadium, you have to try the popcorn. It is almost as good as the popcorn you get at the movie theater."
"Yankee Stadium allows fans to bring food and plastic bottles. We grab sandwiches from a fantastic deli just outside the stadium and a few liter bottles of soda or water. Three of us eat and hydrate for a total of $25. We'll get the occasional beer inside the stadium, but we'll do without more often than not. It's a great food bargain because of their policy allowing food from outside."
How would you rate the hospitality offered to fans of the opposing team?
What is the worst incident you've witnessed against an opposing fan or yourself?
"I've seen beer being thrown at somebody wearing another team's jersey."
"I've seen beer getting dumped on one of those stupid Red Sox fans harassing Yankee pitchers in the bullpen."
"One time, there was a Red Sox fan and we all booed him right out of the stadium. It was very funny. That's what you get for going to the stadium with a Red Sox jersey and hat on."
"Usually, even if the Yanks aren't playing the Sox, or the Mets, someone will wear one of those teams' jerseys in the bleachers. Of course, everyone sees them, and lets the obscenities and middle fingers fly. I once saw a Red Sox hat get thrown out onto the field."
