Take us out to the ball game, take us out with the crowd, but buy us more than some peanuts and Cracker Jack (sorry). The 2023 baseball season is finally here, and there are new items in the food lineup at Yankee Stadium this year, including 99 Burger, Fuku, and Christian Peroni. Starting on March 30, ticket holders in field-level sections (110 to 130) or the Delta Suite at Yankee Stadium can also get hot dogs, french fries, and other snacks delivered straight to their seats via Uber Eats. (Each section has a QR code that can be scanned in added to the food delivery app.) But for seats beyond those seating ranges, there’s still plenty of food worth queuing up for this year.
New this year
