This is an issue we touched on earlier in the year, but it was something that was painfully obvious during the ALDS, especially in Game 5: The crowd at Yankee Stadium sucks.

Never was this more evident in the bottom of the 9th with the Yankees trailing by a run, or with Jorge Posada’s last ABs in the pinstripes…no standing, no cheers, no hype…nothing.

We don’t mean to imply that EVERYBODY who goes to the Stadium is like this, but the overall atmosphere is severely lacking. How many times do you turn on a game and the seats on the first and third base sides are half full? The place is dead the majority of the time. The ALDS was a prime example of this.

It’s sad to see.


It’s a 5-star experience!
