The Yankees will host a community open house the day before the new Stadium hosts the first exhibition game against the Chicago Cubs. From the official release:
Fifteen thousand free tickets will be distributed by local Bronx Community Boards and the New York Yankees.
Gates open at 11 AM and ticketed fans will have the chance to walk around and explore all areas of the new stadium including Monument Park. At 1:30 PM, fans will get the opportunity to sit and watch the first workout and batting practice in the new Stadium. All ticketed guests will also receive free lunch vouchers which are good for a beverage and their choice of pizza or hotdog.
One thousand free tickets will be given to each of the twelve Bronx Community Boards for them to distribute to their local residents. To inquire about tickets, Bronx residents should contact their local Community Boards directly. Contact information for each of the Community Boards can be found by visiting http://www.nyc.gov/html/cau/html/cb/cb_bronx.shtml. An additional 3,000 tickets will be distributed to community based organizations and union workers who have participated in helping to build the new Stadium. The preview will be held rain or shine on the 2nd.
