Are you one of those people who waxes on and on about how awesome Shea Stadium or the Old Yankees stadium was? Or are you just, like, a die-hard New York baseball fan? Or, um, do you like baseball? The Milford Plaza, which offers itself up as a baseball hotel season after season (recall the New York Mets 1986 World Series Winner commemorative deal where you could get an upgrade for $19.86, and then '07's $20.07 room upgrade for baseball fans in honor of the 2007 season) is pitchin' to you again.

And this year's "Take Me Out to the Milford" promo is a hot opp for those nostalgic, memorabilia-collector types: from now until September 12th, you'll receive an upgrade to Milford Club accommodations (where available) when you present a piece of memorabilia from either Shea or the old Yankee stadium at check-in:

Whether it's an old photograph of the playing field or an authentic game ticket, guests are invited to share all forms of nostalgia for New York’s former stadiums.

In addition to the upgrade, guests will also receive a Milford Plaza drawstring backpack (1 per room) with a bag of peanuts to snack on during the game.

Rates start at $159 per night right now (ah, how things have changed since the 2007 package, where rates were $259 and up).

How far we've fallen

I worked there back in the early 80's and rates back then were not far from that. THe lullabuy rate was $99 with a meal in Kippys Pier 44 or the Stage door canteen. The economy has really hurt big houses like this. At least the check in lines wont be too long
