New Yankee Stadium To Include Luxury Dugout For Higher Paid Players

NEW YORK--According to a report in the New York Post, the new Yankee Stadium, in addition to boasting several exorbitantly priced luxury boxes, will also feature an upscale “luxury dugout” for the league's higher paid players. The luxury dugout will include flat screen TV’s, reclining seats, central air conditioning, and a full waitstaff.
“The team really wants to appeal to some of the higher paid players in baseball with these luxury dugouts,” said a source close to the team. “This will be a great way to raise revenue in light of the difficulty in selling the normal luxury boxes. For instance, someone like Alex Rodriguez or Mark Teixeira might opt to pay the $10,000 weekly fee for the luxury dugout, while losers like Brett Gardner can sit in the poor people’s dugout. Hey, if it’s good enough for the fans, it’s good enough for the players.”
The team is also said to be considering luxury bat racks for players who want their bats to be entertained by strippers.
