York Yankees Home Game Schedule is a year by year list
of home games played at Yankee Stadium for the purpose
of properly attributing a Grandstand or Bleacher ticket
Game No. to the game played. The list features scheduled
games, double headers, rainouts, and make up games. Each
page includes games of note, player milestones, records,
and historic game events for that year.
Websites that provide "Schedule and Results" list the
games in the order in which they were played, both home
games, and road games. In a 162 game schedule, the
games are listed from 1-162 and the finale number of
games played will sometimes vary depending if a rain
out that was not made up subtracts from this number or
if a tie game that was replayed, adds to the number.
The "Game No." that appears on a Grandstand or Bleachers ticket stub is
the game number for the scheduled home game. In a 162
game schedule, Game No. 1 - 81. but, because of rain
outs, and make up games you cannot count the number of
home games on the "Schedule and Results" list to come
up with the correct game number. You need a Home Game
Schedule that was printed before the season started.
The Team Home Schedule will provide you with the correct Game No.
attributed to a ticket. The Game No. on the ticket for
the first game of a Scheduled Double Header is used for
admittance to both scheduled games. (up until 1974 when
both scheduled Game No.'s are used) Scheduled Double
Headers count as two games. However, separate game
admission for a Holiday Double Header was common in the
1920's, and two separate ticket No.'s were used for
admittance to each game. This happened in 1925, 1932,
1933, 1934, 1935 and 1936.
Heading into the 1930's baseball saw a major decline in week-day afternoon
single game attendance, due in part to the great
depression, and high unemployment. To boost gate
receipts Baseball offered two games for the price of
one. What they did was remove a scheduled single
week-day game and added it to a Sunday game earlier in
the season. They called it a "Synthetic Double Header"
(Synthetic Double Headers, were sometimes created due
to stress on the schedule caused by excessive Rain
The tickets for games that were rained out were voided out, and if the
make up game is added to another scheduled game and
played as a double header the game number for the
scheduled game is used for admittance to both games. If
the rain out game is made up and played on an off day a
Letter is assigned as the Game No. The letter is
randomly selected for that game and are not used in
order from A-Z, making it difficult to attribute a
lettered Game No. to a specific game played. Games that
were rained out on the road are sometimes made up at
home adding to the teams number of home games played
for that season. (and vice versa) The same rules apply.
If the game is added to a scheduled game the Game No.
for the schedule game is used for admittance and if
played on an off day a lettered Game No. is used.
