Yankees Baseball Game

We have tickets for the Sunday 2:05 game, June 26th. I see that the Old Timers game begins at 11:30 that day. How early should be head out from our hotel La Quinta Manhattan, 17 West 32nd st?

Also, are there areas in the stadium where you can get out of the sun without leaving the stadium? That question might not make sense, but, the Houston stadium has several areas you can visit where you can still see the game, but, not be in your seats.

Thanks

How early you head out depends entirely on how early you want to get there. Your hotel is between Fifth and Sixth Avenues. You can enter the 34th Street station of the D train, which is the one you would want on a Sunday, at the corner of 32nd and Sixth. At the hour you will be travelling, the D runs about once every 12 minutes, and the trip to 161st Street should take about 22 minutes from 34th Street once youa re on board the train.

Thanks. That helps so much. I know my husband will want to be there in time to see Monument park and be in our seats for the Old Timers start.

Keep in mind they close monument park an hour before game time, which may mean in your case, an hour before the old timers game.

And yes, you can see the game from shaded areas, but not anywhere you can sit down, only stand
