I don't think even a Yankees game in the new stadium has had a crowd north of 50,000.

 

Per ESPN 2013 average attendance for the Yankees: 40,488

http://espn.go.com/mlb/attendance

 

And per Wikipedia:

 

Capacity Baseball : 50,291[6]
Football : 54,251[7] Record attendance Baseball : 50,960[8]

I know that crowds of 49,000 people have been called sellouts in the new stadium.  I like the new stadium a lot, but the atmosphere is a lot more tame because it holds 4,000 fewer people, but they're more spread out.  The old stadium could hold 55,000 people in a smaller building which made it a lot more louder.  I also think the old stadium had better sightlines.

 

You are absolutely correct.  The new Stadium is not as steep (especially in the upper deck) and doesn't hold sound nearly as well as the old one.  It's a very bland and sterile environment for most games now.  For me, although it is a great facility, it's not nearly as enjoyable as the old stadium. 

 

The Yankees call anything over 49,000 a sellout, because they don't count their club seats as part of the official attendance.  I do know for a fact that when the stadium first opened, it had 52,000+ seats.  What happened to the seating capacity since then, I'm not sure.  However, I truly believe that they simply don't count certain seats as part of their official capacity like the Devils have done this season at the Rock, thereby artificially lowering the capacity.

Agreed completely.  My first ever game in the new stadium was the game where Luis Castillo dropped that pop fly which led to a Yankees win.  I sat in the RF upper deck, and I had to constantly lean forward to see the game.  Another gripe I have with the new stadium is where they have monument park.  The Mohegan Sun Sports Bar in CF has been a disaster.  The bleachers right next to the MSB are obstructed views.  And it also hides monument park completely.

 

This year a sellout at the Rock is 16,592 as opposed to the 17,625 number we're all used to.  If you look at our average attendance this year, you basically have to add about 1000 to that number.

Way more than I thought. Less energy last night than I can remember anytime recently.

 

It just feels like, as a fanbase, we're getting used to this mediocrity and losing, and I'm not enjoying this transition one bit.

Yea last night was a fun time.  The atmosphere was fun last night probably because we were pissed off at the sloppiness of the Devils and the bad officiating.

If opening night was 16,624, does that mean the attendance was over capacity?

 

Also, I dont see a lot of people sitting in the terrace tables in the upper level.

Yea this one is still puzzling to me.  They didn't actually call that a sellout.  They were probably still using the 17,625 seating capacity for that game.

Personally I thought it was going to be a sellout.. The clubs were a ghost town but 226 and 215 full which is usually the sign of being at capacity

The Blue Jackets aren't exactly a marquee opponent.
