It’s opening day at Yankee Stadium, the beloved home of the Yankees in the South Bronx, and now through Sept. 25, Yankee fans will be heading up to get their game on. The baseball experience is about more than just “play ball,” however, and Yankee Stadium has a pretty impressive concession lineup if you know where to eat. Read on for the best places to grab a bite while you’re at the game. (And if you’re heading to a Mets’ game, check out our rundown of the best eats at Citi Field, too.)
