About Yankee Stadium

Yankee Stadium is the home of the New York Yankees and the New Era Pinstripe Bowl. To call it a baseball stadium is to acknowledge only a small part of its story. Yankee Stadium is a cultural icon whose legacy is as rich as its character and whose history is as striking as its facade. It is a living museum, resurrecting memories of the past while continuing to serve as the stage for present and future events.

Throughout its history, Yankee Stadium has served as the home of countless sports milestones and major events. Yankee Stadium re-opened its doors to college football in 2010. The New Era Pinstripe Bowl is proud to write a new chapter in the history of Yankee Stadium each and every year.

    Regular-Season Rainout/Reschedule Policy

    If a game is not played or is called before it has become a regulation game, as defined by Major League Baseball (i.e., 4 1/2 innings if the Yankees are ahead and five full innings if the visiting team is ahead or the game is tied), due to weather, an act of God or any other reason, the ticket will constitute a rain check that can be either: (a) used for admission to the rescheduled game, if any, subject to certain doubleheader limitations; or (b) exchanged for a same-priced ticket for any Yankees home game within 12 months of the originally scheduled game, subject to availability. For the Yankees' complete rainout/reschedule policy, please visit www.yankees.com/rainout or call (212) YANKEES.

    In no event will the Yankees be liable to the ticket holder and/or ticket purchaser for any direct, indirect, consequential, exemplary, incidental, special or punitive damages or for lost profits, revenues or business opportunities even if the Yankees have been advised of the possibility of such damages.
