New York City is one of America's top baseball destinations. The city boasts two storied franchises—the Yankees and Mets—two world-class stadiums, and numerous Hall of Famers. Here are a few ways you can experience this national pastime in NYC.
New York Yankees
The highly decorated New York Yankees have played in 40 World Series, winning 27 of them—more appearances and wins than any Major League Baseball team. Whether you're looking to score tickets to a Yankees game or searching for a more in-depth baseball experience, there are several ways to explore Yankee Stadium, the franchise's home turf. Choose a VIP experience to watch a game inside a luxury suite with a former Yankees legend or a VIP stadium tour featuring retired players like relief pitcher Jeff Nelson. Yankee Stadium is located in the Bronx, just north of Manhattan.
New York Mets
While Yankees fans outnumber Mets fans almost two to one, the Bronx Bombers' crosstown rivals are the city's beloved underdog. The Mets play at Citi Field, a state-of-the-art stadium located in Queens. There are numerous opportunities to experience this famous NYC arena in person, including Mets game-day tickets, VIP packages featuring batting practice and on-field tours, meet and greets with Mets players, and special game-day access to VIP stadium suites.
