I wore Jersey, jeans - but brought a jacket in case A/C was too strong. It barely existed..
Parking is available near gates 2 and 4 but for convenience park near gate 8 if possible.
Get there early! Will Call is chaotic with LONG lines.
Toronto Blue Jays vs. New York Yankees
Although the subway can get you there, Metro North from GSC has a train that takes less then 15 minutes. It cost $10 more, but it's well worth it. Also check the schedule for returning trains. We missed the train by two minutes and had to wait an hour for the next one.

If there is no one sitting in front of you ask to move up as the view is better lower down.
The weather was SEASONABLE. I wore LIGHT JACKET.

Will call and the stadium opens at the same time. Two hours before the game. Nothing earlier than that.
The weather was Cool. I wore a long sleeve. It is temperature controlled so you are okay with whatever you want to wore .
Park at Gate 2. Will call is near Gate 4 but you enter and leave Gate 2.
The Audi Yankees club was amazing. The buffet was delicious. There were items such as 4+ meats, sushi, cold shrimp, baked fish, a salad bar, 3-4 pre-made salads, appetizers, hot dogs, grilled vegetables and other items. They also had a dessert bar and ice cream. Non-alcoholic beverages were included and the buffet was available until the 7th inning. The only thing missing were the peanuts and cracker jacks. Apparently the menu varies each night. The seats were a tad close to each other, but not a deal breaker. They also could not get the speaker right to listen to the game via the televised announcers for a couple innings. This was a great experience, though if you prefer the outdoor feel of going to a game, this venue won't work for you. But the entire wall was glass so there is a great view of the entire stadium. Some tips: 1. Enter the stadium through a regular gate/entrance to experience waking around the inside of the stadium and if you want to take pictures from the outside. Once you leave the club, the elevator takes you an outside entrance. And I did not see those entering through the suites entrance were receiving the give aways that night. 2. If you get to the stadium 2 hour before game time, (probably earlier is better), you can get in line to see the Yankees museum and all timers walk of fame (both free). That area is only open for 1 hour and the line is long. or you can pay for the tour to see those two areas in addition to seeing the dugout. 3. If you want the club experience with an outdoor feel, get a ticket to the Jim beam suites. A buffet isn't included though. 4. The cheap (nose bleed/ top of the stadium) really aren't bad seats. Of course you cant see the players up close, but unless you are sitting in the premium seats right near the dug out, you won't be able to see the players face anyway. I would definitely sit in the Audi suite again. It was a great experience.
Eat at the Court Deli inexpensive beer great hot dogs, pastrami and knishes. add your own...
Take the metro, walk some - the sights are worth it!

Get the bucket of wings or tenders & fries for $20
Arrive early. We arrived 30 minutes before the game and spent 40 minutes in line to pick up the tickets.
Take the subway... Much cheaper and easier. No way should you pay $15+ to park a car.
