The raucous fans who populate Yankee Stadium’s bleachers should return to form this season, now that the team has lifted its nine-year prohibition on performance-enhancing suds.
Beer was banned in Section 39 at the old Stadium in 2000 to tame the sometimes overly passionate Bleacher Creatures, but with the move to the new ballpark, the taps will be turned on once again, a team official told The Post.
No beer vendors will come through Section 203, but fans will be permitted to purchase 12-ounce beers for $6 in the stadium and take them back to their seats or imbibe at the new Bleacher Cafe.
“The good news is we can drink again; the bad news is I’m going to be spending a lot more money, I guess,” said “Sheriff Tom” Brown, 40, a Creature since 1993.
…”There is something to be said for a cold frosty one on a hot July day, and the ban had been a turnoff for a lot of people,” [Bald Vinny] said.
$6 for a 12 oz. is pretty good, considering what you’d get in a bar outside the Stadium. Plus you get the live action. Now I’m going to get myself some bleacher seats soon! And chant the Roll Call!
