Ex-Yankee ticket line a sex number
Some New York Yankee fans will get more than they bargain for if they Google a phone number for the team’s box office.
The New York Post reported Saturday that such a search would lead to an old team Web page that has a number to buy tickets as 800-913-9793.
Only problem is those digits will now connect you to … a sex line.
“Welcome to America’s hottest talk line,” the recording says. “Guys, hot ladies are waiting to talk to you. Press 2 to connect free now.”
The Post reports that the line connects “18 and over” callers for sexy chats, anonymous hook-ups and dates. Ladies can use the service for free, and men get a five-minute trial at no cost.
A Yankees spokeswoman told the newspaper that it was a fluke.
“It’s not a Yankee issue. It’s an idiosyncratic thing with Google,” spokeswoman Alice McGillion said.
McGillion said callers used the “temporary” 800 number for seat relocations in 2008 and 2009.
And for those of you who are looking for tickets to a real baseball game in the Bronx, the actual number is 1-800-Yankees.
