Only 2 More Games Left To Get Tickets For

The process of purchasing tickets for the trip is almost complete. We now have purchased tickets for 28 of the 30 games. For 27 of those 28 games we were able to get wheelchair and companion seats. The only team we had problems with was the Yankees. Not only do we not have wheelchair seats for that game, but we do not even have two seats next to each other. At least we did not have to StubHub it and Dad is still going to try the send a letter to get handicap tickets strategy that he heard was the process on some voice message when calling one of the Yankee ticket numbers he tried calling the day the Yankees tickets went on sale. Now the only games left are the Mets, which have not gone on sale yet, and the Padres, whose credit card processing was down this weekend.

Update on Yankees: We did eventually get a hold of their handicap department and got out tickets exchanged for three together in a handicap section. It seems like a very inefficient way to do it and they still come off as very disorganized, as they still had to do it through Ticketmaster, who said to us they were sold out of handicap seats. At least we do have handicap seats, though.

Would love any info you or your dad could share on getting a wheelchair and companion ticket for the Yankees. I went to my first game last year with my wife and loved it. Use a w/c due to amputations and haven't been able to get any info on the new stadium/ tickets for 2009. If you can't post, my e-mail is kacklelackle@aol.com
Thanks,

Finally received a call back from Yankees Disability Customer Relations. I was told to send them the tickets we have (which have not been received yet) and they will exchange them for wheelchair and companion tickets. Seems like a very inefficient way to handle ticketing.

As Kjersti says, the Yankees are sure disorganized.
