    More places for the rich to hang out at YS

    Anybody notice that three sections of the Grandstand Concourse behind the plate have been turned into a Jim Beene Lounge/Bar? You can still walk behind the bar but you can no longer stand behind the plate on the Grandstand concourse.

    They just expand the existing roped off area or something? There was a small 'lounge' area that was separated from the rest of the concourse.

    Maybe I'm wrong, but wasn't that there last year too? There weren't the seats, flowers, and (rediculous) fabric, but I definitely remember there were tables that were blocked off for the Jim Beam seats.

    EDIT: Sounds like RayG remembers the same thing as me so I'm not going crazy here.

    It looked pointless a few couches and TV's the view to the field was blocked- what a waste of space

    Re: More places for the rich to hang out at YS

    Its been four years when are some people going to realize that this shopping mall that happens to have a baseball field in its middle wasnt built for us? They can make tons more money on the few thousand corporate types then the tens of thousands of us fans. Its a sad reality.

    I don't understand it either, it's not even climate controlled. But you can't expect anything when you have people paying $500 / ticket in the delta and getting zero food or drink with that. What I don't understand is why some people / corps are still buying those tickets

    Some might say watching the flowers grow would be more interesting this year.
    If they ask who was our star, give them 25 names, and if you forget our names, just tell them we were Yankees.

    Last season they roped off one section and put some high tables there for the Jim Beam fans. But late in the game anyone could sit there if they wanted. This year they closed off three sections and put lounges and bars in the space. Only Jim Beam fans are alowed at any time. And you can't even watch the game from the seats they have placed there!

    And it takes up space under three sections of the stands.

    Disgusting. Looks like a bunch of junk picked out of a clearance center. What they borrow this stuff from the Cleveland Browns? Flowers top the cake.

    Lol not surprised at all. If you want to experience a baseball game, NYS is the last place I would choose. I like Fenway better.

    True but you are going to watch a baseball game not sit in a living room at the stadium.

    That looks really nice, but not for a baseball stadium.
