New York Yankees News - 2/8/12

Good morning, Pinstripe Alley!

  • It was announced last night, but just in case you missed it, Bill Hall has agreed to terms with the New York Yankees on a minor league contract that would allow him to enter spring training with the team. According to the Wall Street Journal, if Hall is added to the 40-man roster, he'll earn $600,000 with the opportunity to earn an additional $600,000 in performance bonuses. Best of luck to Hall.
  • This story wins the "Adorable Story of the Day" award, hands down. It could cost fans $55 to park their car outside Yankee Stadium pretty soon. Yes, $55.

And it's because the Bronx Parking Development Company LLC — a private firm that owns and operates parking lots and garages surrounding the new stadium — is unable to repay the hundreds of millions of dollars that it owes on bonds.

I'm relieved I take the train.

  • In other Yankee-related news on this fine morning, Madonna will be the next artist added to the growing list of singers to perform at Yankee Stadium this September. The Yankees announced yesterday afternoon that she will perform on September 6.

Tickets go on sale to the general public on Monday at 10:00 a.m. ET at Livenation.com. Yankees full- and partial-season ticket licensees, Yankees Universe members, Yankees Group Leaders and Yankees.com subscribers will have the opportunity to take part in a special pre-sale at Yankees.com/madonna.
