A Whole New Ball Game: NYC Ballpark Tour

Jonathan Zeller

With the debut of new homes for the Mets and the Yankees, the 2009 season made history in NYC: for the first time ever, two new Major League stadiums opened simultaneously in a single city.

The new Yankee Stadium and Citi Field—along with the gorgeous minor league ballfields where the Brooklyn Cyclones and Staten Island Yankees play—are must-see stops on an NYC ballpark tour. Fans can check out a mind-boggling four stadiums in one city, armed with nothing but a MetroCard, sunblock and an appetite for peanuts, Cracker Jack and an extensive lineup of other mouthwatering eats. Read on to discover what to expect at each ballpark—the new Yankee Stadium and Citi Field—then grab your mitt and get ready for a citywide quadruple-header.
