This is an old one so my mind is slightly hazy on it but I went to New York for the first time with my wife (fiancee back then!) in April/May 2010.

I remember being slightly disappointed when the schedule was released for that season as I was hoping to head to Queens to see the Mets but they were out of town when we were there. Fortunately, I got the chance to go to the Bronx and see the Yankees play the White Sox - it was some experience and the new stadium was great, although everything seemed to cost $5! laugh.gif

White Sox 7
Yankees 6

This is the game recap... http://scores.espn.go.com/mlb/recap?gameId=300501110

Here are some photos, hope you enjoy them!

All in all, I loved my first taste of live MLB and really hope for an opportunity to get over to Toronto this year but it might be a bit of a stretch financially! Here's hoping we manage it!

No probs, always like reading about other people's trips to see live MLB and thought I'd share my own and just hoping that I get the opportunity to catch more and the sooner the better! smile.gif

Looks like a great day out at the ball park. Thanks for putting those snaps up.

It's always good to see our own members put up pics from games they were at. Yankee Stadium looks pretty class, Im heading in May so I'll be sure to put up some pics when I return smile.gif

It's a Panasonic TZ4 Lumix, just a wee thing but really does the job!

Believe it or not, they haven't even been touched up!

Hi

I'm new to this site and was looking through the posts and came across this one. I was also at this game on my wedding trip to las Vegas/new York.

Vasquez had a nightmare and was booed off the mound and if I remember right andruw jones hit two homers for the sox one of them landed a few rows in front of me.

Was a really hot day that day and so glad the overhang of the second tier put us in the shade.

Loved going to the game and also caught a minor league game in Vegas (blue jays affiliate) and can't wait till the next one.

Got 8 nights booked in new York next may so lets hope the schedule is kind.

Yeah I sure am! Watch pretty much every game on MLB.tv much to my missus annoyance but not the same as being at a live game. Really can't wait to go next year. Will try squeeze about three games in an maybe one being on Washington.

So far been to las Vegas 51's v Sacramento river cats
Yankees v white sox
And red sox v rays at the trop!
