The New York Yankees are in the American League Championship Series, and the team still can't sell out their own stadium. According to reports, the team had to move fans around Yankee Stadium during Game 1 of the American League Championship Series Saturday night, so that the team could give off the appearance to those who were watching on TV that the stadium was "somewhat" filled.For the second straight time, rows of seats inside of Yankee Stadium didn't have any fans sitting in them.An usher, who works at Yankees Stadium, told Yahoo Sports that all ushers in the stadium were told to get other fans, who did attend the game, and fill up any empty seats in other sections of the stadium.The ushers began the massive movement of people during the bottom of the fourth inning.Some fans who spent "cheap money" to get seats in the higher sections of the stadium got a shock as they were being moved to MUCH BETTER seats in the stadium.It was announced Saturday night that a little over 47,000 people showed up for the ALCS Game 1 match-up between the Yankees and Detroit Tigers. Keep in mind that Yankee Stadium can hold 51,000 people, which is in a metropolitan area of over 22 million people (New York-New Jersey area).As of late Saturday night, there are about 7,000 tickets left for the Game 2 match-up, which will be back at Yankee Stadium, Sunday night.The tickets range from $40 to nearly $250, which is cheap.
