BEHIND THE BAT

 Yankee games make for great family outings, but their hour-long behind-the-scenes tour adds an extra thrill for young baseball fans (and moms and dads).  Tours are held every day at noon — except when the Yankees play at home on weekends, or prior to any day game.  Up till 11am on the day of your tour, you can book in advance, online, and print your tickets at home.  Otherwise, reservations are not required; you can sign up when you arrive.  


   The first stop on the tour is the one-of-a-kind Monument Park where retired-number jerseys of past legends are on display; here, you’ll also see the many plaques dedicated to Yankee legends.  The park has also added a monument honoring the victims of 9-11.  Then the group is led along the outer edges of the field, through the dugout, into the Yankee clubhouse (when accessible), and into the press box.

   The Bronx Bombers are also now offering baseball fans of all ages the opportunity to have a birthday celebration on their home turf.  Guests are first given the behind-the-scenes-tour, and then are escorted to a private “Hall of Fame” suite with stadium seating and a panoramic view of the stadium. A short film about the history of the stadium is shown, followed by pizza, beverages, and cake. Guests receive souvenir baseball caps.  Parties run just under two hours.

Info:
Where: 161st Street and River Avenue in the Bronx.

How much: Tours: Adults: $14; children, 14 & under/seniors, $7 (these prices will increase by $1 from April 9, 2007).
Birthday parties: $35 person; $40 person for kosher food. (Minimum 12 people required).
