Yankees Deny Report Indicating Big Price Hike For Game With Jeter Retirement Ceremony
Published July 21, 2014
FISHY TIMING? In N.Y., Mike Vaccaro writes while the Yankees on Friday announced the Jeter ceremony will be Sept. 7, that was "after every rational fan was under the impression it would naturally be held on the last Sunday game of the year (as was Mariano Rivera’s)." So the Sept. 21 game "sells out and the secondary market for this ticket has been absurd all year." The new date "guarantees another sellout in what looks like another down year." Vaccaro: "To me, this seems like a story that Yankees ownership should have to explain" (N.Y. POST, 7/20).
