The New York Yankees is known for being a very rich baseball team.
And their fans are known for being very rich as well. The Yankee organization may deny it, but their new ticketing policy seem to point to this fact after they opened up their new $1.5 billion stadium.
The elitism in Bronx reached its all-time high when Yankees Chief Operating Officer explained why they banned tickets printed at home. Executive Lonn Trost said, "Quite frankly, the fan may be someone who has never sat in a premium location. So that’s a frustration to our existing fan base."
"The rich fans who buy $1,200 tickets don't want to watch the game next to people who aren't used to sitting in $1,200 seats. What if they do something uncouth, like cheer?"
That is so low.
