After a 5.5 hour rain delay, the Yankees finally were able to play ball. Can you imagine paying 1,250 dollars for a ticket to this game? These are the exact reasons as to why you can not value a baseball game at these atrocious prices. I guarantee you that very few people who bought those tickets (those that can afford to spend over 1,000 dollars on a ticket) actually stayed for the entire game. At least the Yankees let the fans move down to a lower section at the beginning of the game.
Would you guys have stayed for the game? Or hightailed it out there to the nearest bar? I probably would have stayed, as it would have been a waste of gas to travel 3 hours to a game only to leave before it started. It certainly would have made for an extremely long day though, especially having to do the long travel home.
Major League Baseball really struck out there though. I mean, a near 6 hour rain delay.. seriously?
Side note: That play Gardner made in centerfield was just painful to watch. His head slamming against the plexi glass makes my head hurt. It appears as if he is OK though which is good.
