It's about time. I think the reason for the delay is because the Yankees were trying to sell more season ticket packages. Those prices must have been through the roof. If you've tried to get tickets through Web sites like StubHub.com, than you already know that ticket prices have soared.
I was trying to get tickets for a game in April so I could go with my college buddies, but they were asking for $48 each on weekend games. I don't know how they can charge so high with the economy the way it is.
