Yankee Stadium regular-season finale scheduled as night game

7/16/2008 - MLB New York Yankees

NEW YORK -- Yankee Stadium's regular-season finale will be a night game.

The Yankees' Sept. 21 game against the Baltimore Orioles has been scheduled for 8:05 p.m. and will be televised nationally by ESPN as part of its Sunday night package.

The game was listed as TBA on the original schedule and was selected by ESPN just before the All-Star break, MLB senior vice president Katy Feeney said Wednesday.

If New York fails to qualify for the postseason, it would be the last game at the Yankees' longtime home.

Up to $65,000 was being asked for a ticket to the game on Wednesday on Stubhub.com, with the lowest price $265.
