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.

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?).

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.
