Yanks’ opener postponed to Tuesday
The Yankees will try again Tuesday to open the 2016 season. Monday’s scheduled opener against the Astros at Yankee Stadium was postponed due to forecasts of inclement weather. Tuesday’s forecast calls for brisk weather, but at least it is not supposed to rain. For the 1:05 p.m. start, the temperature may not get above 40 degrees, so dress appropriately.
Tuesday’s rescheduled Opening Day game will be broadcast on the YES Network, except in areas serviced by Comcast. Gates will open to fans with valid tickets at 11 a.m., and pregame events and ceremonies scheduled for Monday will take place prior to the rescheduled game Tuesday.
As a reminder, as part of Major League Baseball’s initiative to standardize security procedures at all 30 parks, all ticket holders are required to be screened via metal detectors before entering the Stadium. The Yankees strongly encourage all visitors to budget extra time for arrival and entry to Yankee Stadium for all home games.
Fans holding paid tickets for Monday’s game may use them for the rescheduled game or exchange their paid tickets for any regular season game at the Stadium through the end of the 2016 season, subject to availability.
Fans holding complimentary (COMP) tickets for Monday’s game must use them for the rescheduled game. COMP tickets or equivalent tickets bear no cash value and do not have any additional benefits that may be offered to tickets with a dollar value.
