The New York Yankees announced today that they will open the Stadium Field Level and Great Hall to the public to watch the broadcast of the American League Championship Series (ALCS) Game 3 from Anaheim on Monday, October 19. The decision to open the Stadium was made after consultation with Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr.
Turnstiles between Gates 4 and 6 will open at 3:30 p.m. for the 4:13 p.m. Game. Fans can watch the Game in the Great Hall or in the opened sections of the Field Level.
"We wanted to provide a place for our fans to come together to cheer for our team even if the game itself is taking place across the country," said Hal Steinbrenner, Yankees Managing General Partner. "This is a way of saying thank you for their continued support."
"I thank the New York Yankees for opening their amazing new Stadium to the community, and I hope that people from all over the city will come out to cheer for the Yankees and share in what's sure to be a great night right here in The Bronx," said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr.
Food and concession stands will be open and available to fans. NYY Steak and Hard Rock Cafe will also be open.
