Individual tickets for 2008 New York Yankees regular season home games-in what is the final regular season at the current Yankee Stadium-will go on sale Friday, February 29, online only at http://www.yankees.com and http://www.yankeesbeisbol.com.

Beginning Monday, March 3, tickets may also be purchased at Yankee Stadium Advance Ticket Windows, at all area Ticketmaster outlets, via Ticketmaster by phone at (212) 307-1212 (or check local listing) and at all Yankees Clubhouse Shops.

The 26-time-World Champion New York Yankees will begin the 2008 season-the 106th in franchise history-at home on Monday, March 31 at 1:05 p.m. vs. the Toronto Blue Jays.  This season will mark the 86th year since construction was completed on the original Stadium in 1923 and the 84th regular season of baseball played on its grounds.  The Yankees’ 1974-75 regular seasons were played at Shea Stadium as Yankee Stadium was remodeled.

Premium Games Note: Due to an increase of Ticket License Deposits and sales of Full and Partial Ticket License Plans and 2008 Holiday Ticket Packs, there will be a very limited number of individual game tickets available for Premium Games.  As a result, there will be a four-ticket limit, per person, per Premium Game. The term "Premium Games" is defined as the Opening Day game, the Old-Timers’ Day game, the final three (3) scheduled regular season games scheduled to be played at Yankee Stadium, and all games played against the following teams: (i) Boston Red Sox, and (ii) New York Mets. For full official rules regarding the purchase of Premium Games tickets, please visit http://www.yankees.com. In addition, there will be a 12-ticket limit, per person, per game for all other non-Premium Games.

God, I would love to go Opening Day, my last Yankee game in Yankee Stadium was in 2001, vs the Mets, a rematch of the Subway Series. I get to see the Yankees when they come to Texas but there is NOTHING like watching a game in Yankee Stadium (I get goosebumps, just thinking about it!).

I have my Opening Day tickets and I’m pretty excitied about it, especially being the last year in Yankee Stadium.
