Yankees Tickets: Previewing the Dodgers Series

When the Dodgers last won the World Series as New York City, a ticket to Game 4 could be had for $7.35, or less than the cost of a hot dog or a beer at the New Yankee Stadium. The last time the Dodgers visited the Bronx was for the 1981 world series, and the face price of the Old Yankee Stadium Loge seats was $20. Times have obviously changed, and for last year's World Series, the minimum face price for the Giants-Tigers World Series was $110. For game one of 2013 Yankees vs. Dodgers series, though, there are a handful of tickets available for $20, most of them for tomorrow night's game. While you can find all Yankees tickets from our partners at TiqIQ. They also did a little advanced scouting and identified a couple deals below, both from the Yankees:

Game One, Tonight: Section 206: $71 w/ fees. $20 below anything else on the market. CLICK HERE

Game Two, Tomorrow: Section 135 and 136: $86 with fees. $18 below anything else on the market. CLICK HERE

Right now the probability of a 2013 Yankees/Dodgers world series is extremely low. The Dodgers enter the series last in the NL West, but only seven games out of the playoff hunt. The Yankees are in third in the AL East, three games behind the Red Sox. With former Yankee Don Mattingly in the opposing dugout, though, the game is sure to evoke memories, even for those too young to remember 1981. Mattingly only played two post season games in Yankee stadium, both in 1995. In those game, he batted .500 and led the team into Seattle with a good chance to return home for the ALCS. As we all now know, Edgar Martinez and Ken Girffy Jr. had other plans. Despite the Yankees' dramatic loss, there was some solace in knowing that the Captain had seized the moment and delivered big on the post season stage. While his legacy as a great Yankee was already fortified, those two games dispelled any questions about how great he could be in October. While we're still months from October, these two games at Yankee stadium may be critical to dispel the speculation about his tenure as Dodgers manager. A dismal performance on the biggest stage in baseball could be the final straw. Two wins could be a turning point in the season. If the past is any predictor, Mattingly will make sure his guys leave it all out on the field.
