NEW YORK -- When the Yankees are on the road for Sunday's Game 4 of the World Series, fans will still have a chance to watch the game at Yankee Stadium.
The Yankees on Wednesday announced they will open the Yankee Stadium Field Level and Great Hall to the public to watch the telecast of Game 4 at Philadelphia's Citizens Bank Park on Sunday. Weather permitting, the turnstiles between Gates 4 and 6 at the Stadium will open at 7 p.m. ET.
Game 4 is slated to start at 8:20 p.m. Fans can watch the game in the Great Hall or in the opened sections of the Field Level.
The Fall Classic gets started with Game 1 on Wednesday night. After the first two games are played in New York, the World Series shifts to Philadelphia for Game 3, which is slated for Saturday.
During their American League Championship Series with the Angels, the Yankees opened their home park to the public for Game 3.
"When we opened the Stadium for Game 3 in the ALCS, the response was positive and the energy from our fans was truly infectious. They really enjoyed coming together to watch the game," said Hal Steinbrenner, Yankees managing general partner. "Once we reached the World Series, we felt that it was the perfect time to open the Stadium again. We remain grateful for the support of the best fans in baseball."
Fans will have access to food and concession stands, and NYY Steak and Hard Rock Café will also be open.
