Episode 11: Yankee Stadium Ballpark Pass, A Ridiculous Subway Series Hat And More

I’m flying solo this week on the podcast, our first since the All-Star Break, to talk about a number of items that popped up recently in Yankee Universe. The biggest is obviously the introduction of the “Ballpark Pass” for August at Yankee Stadium. I’ll break down what the monthly pass entails, how much it costs and whether it’s a smart purchase or not.

We wrap the episode with a couple of merchandise items: an OBJ/Yankee jersey update and the new (and almost as-ridiculous) Subway Series hat that New Era is selling and thankfully, the Yankees are not wearing on the field.

As always, thanks for listening and be sure to rate/review/subscribe/tell your friends!

Episode 09: OBJ Update, Best Drinks In The Stadium And Sit In A Suite!

Covering a lot in this episode-and-a-half of the Pinstripe Lanes Podcast – thanks for waiting a little over a week. Guest-host Mike Isserlis is back and we update you on the Odell Beckham Jr. / Yankees jersey and relationship story – one which we really had the lead on last week. Then, we talk about the best deal for cocktails in the Stadium. Finally, have you always wanted to sit in a luxury suite at the ballpark? The charitable opportunity we stumbled across may be your best bet.

Episode 08: The Yankees Are Selling An OBJ Jersey And It’s Stupid

We’ll actually start episode number eight of the Pinstripe Lanes Podcast by talking about a beautiful throwback Mitchell and Ness Lou Gehrig jersey. The item was a birthday gift to our guest co-host, Mike Isserlis, who joins us for a third week. Sadly, we then move to the opposite end of the spectrum and talk about the ridiculous Odell Beckham Jr. (yes, the Giants wide receiver) Yankees home pinstripe jersey currently for sale on Fanatics’ website.

Also – want 50% off select Yankees tickets? We’ll share that tip as well in this edition. Thanks for listening, rating, reviewing and subscribing!

Episode 07: Citi Field All-You-Can-Eat, Putting Old Yankees Shirts To Use

The Yankees are home this weekend against the Rays for both Father’s Day and of course, Old Timers’ Day. However on episode 07, we rewind to last week’s series at Citi Field. Dan Taylor was one of the guys I went to Flushing with following the Belmont Stakes on Saturday to see the Yanks defeat the Mets, so we’ll give you a full review of the Porsche Grille (formerly Acela Club). The dining area sits in left field at the Mets’ park, and we’ll breakdown everything from the menu to the price point to the view (which is pictured on the blog).

Then, speaking of Old Timers’ Day, maybe you have a bunch of old Yankees shirts that you don’t wear but don’t want to throw away? A number of podcast listeners have used Project Repat to turn the clothing into a brand new blanket. Nathan Rothstein is one of the company’s co-founders and chats with us about how they started the company, what they do and how you can turn those unused shirts in to a cool quilt of almost any size for you or a loved one (Father’s Day next year?).

As always, thanks for listening and remember to rate, review and subscribe wherever you get your podcasts!

Episode 06: How To Buy Merch At A Discount, July 4th Gear, Citi Field Tips And More

We cover quite a bit in the latest episode of the podcast. Anthony Restaino, my best friend and fellow life-long Yankees fan, joins me from Western New York to co-host.

We kick things off by talking about the new “Stars and Stripes” collection that MLB will wear on-field for the Fourth of July. The Yankees’ apparel, specifically the hat, is particularly strong in the batch currently on sale. We then also compare tips on how to buy your favorite Yankees gear below retail and/or Stadium shop prices. Then, we look ahead to this weekend, talking about Yankee Stadium and Citi Field. The Yanks visit the Mets this weekend; Anthony and I will be at Saturday night’s game so I offer a few recommendations as far as tickets and food options at the ballpark.

Episode 05: Best Time To Buy On StubHub, Levi’s Merch, Baltimore Tips

Lots of tips and knowledge in episode 05 of the Pinstripe Lanes Podcast. First, I’ll fill you in on the Levi’s pop-up shop that took place in the Great Hall of the Stadium over Memorial Day Weekend and how using your Mastercard could have not only saved you money there, but how it can also still save you money in other parts of the ballpark. Plus, after extensive research, I’ll let you know the best time to buy tickets on StubHub prior to a home game. And finally, if you’re headed to Baltimore this weekend to check out the Yankees at Camden Yards, stick around until the end! I have great pre-and-post game recommendations for you along with an in-game tip on buying beer.

Episode 02: Low-Profile Hats, Visitor’s Merch In The Stadium And WPIX’s Scott Stanford Calls In

The Yankees are on fire, winners in 15 of the team’s last 16 games. Are you feeling good enough that you’re ready to buy a new hat? Listen to this podcast first! Mike Isserlis joins us again to talk about some of the hat offerings both in and out of the Stadium, including the New Era low-profile 5950 on-field model. Plus, we chat about some of the special-event caps that the team will be donning on the field over the next few weeks. Also, I’ll fill you in on one of the most annoying things happening in Yankee Stadium that you might not know about.

Then, we check in with our guest for the week… fresh off his Monday evening newscast on WPIX-TV here in New York, PIX 11 Sports Anchor, WWE host and seven-time Emmy winner Scott Stanford joins us to talk about the Yankee he enjoys interviewing the most, what it’s like to anchor sports on the local Yankee flagship station and perhaps most importantly… what the spread inside the Stadium Press Box is comprised of.
