My first trip to Yankee Stadium: the pictures

Even though everyone knows I’m a Mets fan and that I now live in Queens, my first big league game since coming over to New York from England was to see the Yankees beat the Detroit
Tigers 2-1 on Saturday afternoon.

Yankee Stadium is fantastic – if you’ve never been, get down there when you get a chance. We had the most amazing seats for the game, thanks to my fiance’s father who took the whole family down there as a gift to us.

We were down the first base line just behind first, 17 rows up, which meant I was able to get some nice pictures. Have a look through and see what you think. If you like them, there’s plenty more from this game at my Shutterfly album.

Great pix! I can’t believe how perfect your seats were. Can your fiancee’s father send me those tickets? Haha. Loved the one of Jeter doing his routine with the time out during his at bat. So Jeter. Glad you had a good time.
