    Rainout/Reschedule Policy for Regular Season Games

    If a game is not played or is called before it has become a regulation game, as defined by Major League Baseball (i.e., 4 1⁄2 innings if the Yankees are ahead and five full innings if the visiting team is ahead or the game is tied), due to weather, an act of God or any other reason, the ticket will constitute a rain check that can be either: (a) used for admission to the rescheduled game, if any, subject to certain doubleheader limitations; or (b) exchanged for a same-priced ticket for any regular season Yankees home game within 12 months of the originally scheduled game, subject to availability. For the Yankees' complete rainout/reschedule policy, please visit www.yankees.com/rainout or call (212) YANKEES.

    In no event will the Yankees be liable to the ticket holder and/or ticket purchaser for any direct, indirect, consequential, exemplary, incidental, special or punitive damages or for lost profits, revenues or business opportunities even if the Yankees have been advised of the possibility of such damages.

    Resale of Tickets
