In letter to Yankees’ Randy Levine, Bronx borough prez calls team’s ‘draconian’ ticket policy a ‘blatant money grab’

Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. went to bat for Yankees fans Wednesday, crying foul over the team’s new ticketing policy.

Diaz fired off a letter to Yankees president Randy Levine Wednesday slamming the team’s “draconian new ticketing policy,” which disallows print-at-home tickets.

Diaz accused the Bombers of going for the “blatant money grab” with a policy that would bar fans from using ticket resellers such as StubHub.

In the letter, Diaz zeroed in on Yankees COO Lonn Trost, who has faced criticism for saying on WFAN last week that the new ticket policy was done with the idea that some fans might feel frustrated if they were sitting near others that did not pay a premium price for certain seats.
