Attending a Yankees vs. Red Sox is a Popular NYC Thing to Do
Our Manhattan Hotel welcomes guests from around the country who come to attend Yankees vs. Red Sox games – one of the hottest rivalries in sports!
Watching a game at Yankee Stadium is a top NYC Thing to Do during baseball season. The game, the food, the sounds…for Yankees fans, there is no better place to be. Our Manhattan Hotel hosts many baseball fans who come from out of town to enjoy a game at this iconic ball park, and when the Red Sox are in town things really heat up.
Yankees vs. Red Sox
May 6 through May 8, 2016
Yankee Stadium | 1 East 161st Street Bronx, NY 10451
It’s often called the best rivalry in sports, and for fans of either team, the chance to see the Red Sox play the Yankees is too good to miss. Some fans of both teams are willing to make a trip to New York or Boston to watch these rivals go head to head. The first time the Yankees face the Red Sox at home this season is May 6th through May 8th.
The Yankees/Red Sox rivalry has been brewing for nearly 100 years. Many say it can be traced back to 1919 when then owner of the Red Sox, Harry Frazee, sold star-player Babe Ruth to the Yankees. Since then, the competition between the teams has built steam, and today is the subject of very heated debates – especially in Boston and New York. Fans of both teams, however, can be found throughout the country and when the Red Sox and Yankees come together, it usually results in a sold-out game.
The first Yankees/Red Sox matchup of the season is sure to be no exception. While it’s usually fairly easy to get last-minute tickets to a game at Yankee Stadium, one exception is when the Red Sox come to town. While traditional channels are likely already sold out, those who are willing to pay a premium may still be able to find tickets through secondary sellers such as Stub Hub.
This will be your last chance to see these teams face off until July. The Red Sox will be back at Yankee Stadium for another 3-game series from July 15th through July 17th. You can also watch the rivals play at Fenway Park from August 9th through August 11th.
If you visit our Manhattan Hotel during baseball season then consider enjoying a game. Even if you don’t get to see a Yankees vs. Red Sox game, this NYC Thing to Do is a great way to spend an afternoon or evening any chance you get.
Tickets to games can be purchased online or at the Yankee Stadium box office when available. Note that it’s always a good idea to purchase your tickets ahead of a visit as some games will sell out.
