Have you ever wondered what house you would get sorted into if you attended Hogwarts? Well, you don’t have to wonder anymore. And, no, I am not referring to the sorting hat you can actually purchase (though that is really fun, actually). No, I am actually referring to an upcoming New York Yankees game!
Yes, you read that right. Because it will soon be Harry Potter Day at Yankee Stadium!
This special theme game takes place on Sunday, August 6, 2023 at 1:35 PM. This is when the Yankees take on the Houston Astros. Should be a great American League game.
But back to the Hogwarts houses. So what did I mean by what I said earlier? So, with this theme night comes a special ticket package. And if you purchase it, you can get a free Yankees Harry Potter Scarf!
There will be four different versions of the scarf for each house. So you could get Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, or Slytherin. Once you get to the stadium, you’ll need to head to the redemption table on the Field Level (100 Level) next to Gate 2 up to an hour after the originally scheduled first pitch.
So you will want to show up early to the game. You will also want to buy your special event ticket package as soon as possible because special event ticket packages like these tend to sell out. In fact, there are only a few remaining. So buy the special ticket package here.
If all the ticket packages do sell out, you can still go to the game and have fun; you just won’t get the free scarf. But hey, you will save money on your ticket because you can find much cheaper tickets here. And you can always purchase this Hogwarts sorting hat to finally find out which house you belong in!
Harry Potter Attractions in New York City
The New York Yankees Harry Potter Day isn’t the only Harry Potter attraction in the New York City area. You can also go catch the play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child over at the Lyric Theatre in Times Square. It is a play set nineteen years after the events of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. In the play, Harry Potter is now the Head of the Department of Magical Law Enforcement at the Ministry of Magic, and his son Albus is about to attend his first year at Hogwarts. You can find a good price for tickets to the play here.
