Yankees are really getting pathetic with handling of Legends Suites

NYU held their graduation ceremony at Yankee Stadium yesterday. 20,000 friends and family of the graduates showed up but there was one problem. None of them were allowed to sit in the Legends Suites, which make up the first ten or so rows of seats. That means the close kin of graduating NYU students couldn't get close to the action.

I would say this is just like a regular Yankees game except if you can afford to send your kid to NYU, you can probably afford Legends Suites tickets. Overall, though, really just pathetic stuff on the part of the Yankees. I understand that when a game is going on and people have paid for those seats, you want to keep the "riff raff" out, but this is ridiculous.

I mean, would the snobby, rich, not-even-really-baseball-fans that ponied up $1,200 per seat in the Legends Suites even notice? "Honey, this isn't my ass print on this seat. How dare they let another human into my area?!"

Thanks to friend of the blog Bob Mantz we can give you some video of the situation:
