Play Ball! We’re Teaming Up with the New York Yankees

No matter how much you know about baseball, there’s no denying that the New York Yankees are one of the greatest sports teams in professional sports history. As the most successful team in baseball and home to some of the most famed players and moments of all time (oh, and this one, too) Yankee Stadium has been one special place for baseball fans in the tri-state area.

Today, we’re excited to announce a partnership with the New York Yankees to help fans keep their eye on every pitch, all season long. We’re introducing a designated pickup area at the stadium where fans will find signs to more easily connect with their drivers.

Throughout the season, we’ll also bring fans closer to the Yankees with some special surprises. First up, we’re giving away 10 pairs of Delta Sky Suite Tickets for the game on Sunday, May 15. See how to win here.
