The Yankees announced late Tuesday that tickets for 84 percent of their seats would remain unchanged for 2010, that 13 percent would decrease and that 3 percent would increase.

This was after CNBC's Darren (Roslyn) Rovell broke the basics here.

Here is Newsday's story on the subject.

Finally, the Yankees offered a news release that I received at 11:07 p.m. and which was posted on their Web site here at 11:19.

Among the tickets that will come down, not surprisingly, are those in the notorious Legends Suite.

I was invited earlier this year to attend a game in that section but turned it down because I didn't want to be seen on camera sitting there.

Now it's too late because I started a diet today.

I have talked to a couple of dozen friends, relatives, colleagues and sources who have sat in the Legends Suite - none of whom actually paid for the tickets themselves, of course - and they are unanimous on one point:

The Roman-orgy-like quality and quantity of food that is all but forced upon the patrons there is a truly astounding, life-altering experience.
