Larry Johnson has a funny look at the premium seating situation at Yankee stadium. Last night the author attended a game in MLB seats on the third base side (almost premium seats). This was the first time in over 35 years of attending Red Sox/ Yankee games at the stadium that I can remember that the majority of the empty seats were at field level (and it was not due to rain, which only started in the 6th inning)
