Yankee Stadium: "The Moat" must go

Today on Facebook, we are launching a new page. Titled, "The Moat at Yankee Stadium is a Pathetic Embarrassment," its goal is to force the ownership and upper-management of the New York Yankees to do something about godawful select-seating at the new ballpark which has sucked the life out of the Stadium and has destroyed the greatest home-field advantage in baseball.

We are tired of seeing all of the empty "Moat" seats at Yankee Stadium, even during important post-season games. And please, don't tell us that "the seats are sold." We don't care if people that bought those seats are in luxury suites under the stands eating prime rib and watching the game on high-def flat screens. We want the Yankees front office to find a way to get people back into the seats for the games. We want our ballpark to look just like every other ballpark, with engaged and enthusiastic fans sitting behind the dugouts and behind home plate, cheering on the team.

Two suggestions:

1. The Yankees could have a special promotional "Moat Picture Day" at the Stadium early next season, where common-folk fans who actually know who Jesus Montero and Ivan Nova are can be photographed in "The Great Hall" prior to a game. Those photos could then be made into large, life-sized cardboard cutouts and placed into "The Moat" during other games. At least we might be able to fool some of the TV cameras and not be embarrassed every time the Yankees are on television.

2. This one might make more sense and be a lot more do-able: Simply turn the area of "The Moat" into a lower-level box seats area, the same as it was at the old Yankee Stadium and that same as it is every other stadium in Major League Baseball. Keep the prices high if you must, though we think $200 should be the maximum. Keep the waitresses, too, if you'd like. But get rid of the suites underneath "The Moat" and just make them concession stands. Create a reason for people to want to be in their seat. (For most fans, the fact that there is a New York Yankees baseball game taking place would be more than enough, but that's apparently not good enough for most of your clientele.) Also, open the area to foot traffic for the entire stadium before the games. Let kids walk down there during BP to try to get a closer look at the players. Don't make people feel ostracized and inferior. Fix the vile and elitist environment that you have created at the Stadium and, for God's sake, find a way to have people in their seats during the ballgame. Watch a Yankees/Red Sox game at Fenway Park - where you couldn't get another human being in there with a shoehorn -and try to replicate the atmosphere. And if you can't do that, simply get out a videotape of a game at the old Yankee Stadium.

The Yankees have the best fans in baseball and the largest fan-base. They are knowledgeable, passionate and loyal. We love the new stadium and we fill it with 45,000 people a night. But please do something about the pathetic and embarrassing "Moat." It's been three years now and the problem is not going away.

It is a disgrace.
