Yankees To Offer "Indigent Night"

May 6, 2009

Free Bleacher Seat, Soda Voucher
 
Proof of Income Required
 
New York – After enduring weeks of  massive PR hits for their $2,600 seats, Yankees’ COO Lonn Trost is set to launch the club's latest community-relations initiative, eTrueSports has learned.
 
"We're calling it Indigent Night," Trost said proudly. "To prove that we are good neighbors, for the May 21st game against the exciting Baltimore Orioles, we are offering a free bleacher seat and a voucher for a soft drink (12 oz.) to every fan who can provide us proof that he or she is living below the poverty line.”
 
IRS form 1040 and a Medicaid card are both acceptable forms of proof of income status, Trost said.
 
Asked if he thought this might seem insulting to people struggling to get by in New York City, Trost shook his head.

"Who knows? Tomorrow they could start a sports satire website, and wind up in the Legends seats," the COO said.

It's about time people who devote their lives to living, rather than destroying themselves for a lousy paycheck get rewarded. Kudos Yankees.

The Yankees should be sued for false advertising!  The have a icon for a "free 2-Liter soda", but state they're only giving away a 12 oz soda.  Someone should whup them upside the head with a meterstick.
