We want to thank Governor Cuomo for his decision, which will allow more fans into Yankee Stadium and provide us additional opportunities to further encourage people to get vaccinated. We have been honored to host a vaccination site at Yankee Stadium over these last three months.

If we can encourage more people to get vaccinated by giving away Yankees tickets, we are all in.

So come to the ballpark, get vaccinated, and root for the Yankees!

We also want to thank Mayor de Blasio, who also gave his strong support for this program.
