Yankees Game - Seating Options

I am looking at tickets on stubhub to a Yankees game in April and had a few questions..

What is the difference between Field MVP tickets and normal tickets?

I can get reasonably priced tickets in the first few rows of the following sections;
115, 117A and 119
219 and 217

What are some of the pros and cons of these sections?

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Seats in any of those sections are good. I cannot usually afford lower tier (field level) seats (115, 117, 119), so I opt for the middle tier (#2XX), somewhere between 216 and 224.

The tradeoffs are closeness to the field of play (1xx is better), position relative to home plate vs along the 1st base / 3rd baselines, and price.

For me, I prefer to have seats no further out than 1st or 3rd base. Height of 1st or 2nd tier does not matter to me. In fact, I've never sat in the lower tier at the new Stadium, and probably only once in my life at the old one.

Did you look at the map on the site? You want as close as possible to home plate. The Field level are super $$$.

The ones at 115, 117 and 119 are all marked as Field MVP and are between $125 and $140.. The ones in 216, 217 and 219 are between $75 and $130..

Since it might be the only Yankee game you will see, if you can afford it, I would go with the better seats. See which of the 100-numbered ones are closest to home plate.

Mind you, I am not a die-hard fan, but the partner of someone who grew up next to the stadium and who lives and breathes for this team. (Opening Day is as good as Christmas in this house)

Because the great seats, like the field ones, are so expensive, we go only if someone gifts us fabulous seats. (lots of people have season tickets and some have access to the various box seats) Otherwise it is better, for us, to watch on tv.
But that is only my take..there are loads of people who love to sit in the bleacher seats, far away, and have a fabulous time. It is such an integral part of NYC, the whole thing, traveling up there in the subway, maybe eating nearby before the game, getting beers and snacks in the stadium, etc.

Ask about visiting Monument Park before the game, and watching batting practice, if you are so inclined.
