Just got back from tonight's Yankees vs. Indians game (Yankees, 1-0). The seats kicked ass; the pizza didn't.

It's no better or no worse than Sbarro." You know the score -- I'd recommend sticking to the equally overpriced but more traditional hot dog, peanuts, and beer menu.

Slices are $4.50 (!!!) each for plain or pepperoni and are sized smaller than typical slice-joint portions.
