"People come here four, five, six, seven hours before the game. They have fun, they buy merchandise, Yankee gear, they go to bars, drink and eat. You have everything here," he says.
Ballpark Sports is a one-stop shop to grab gear and go to the game.
"We got shot glasses, mugs, hats, hoodies, jackets, jerseys. We got kids and baby stuff too like onesies," Abbadi adds.
Ballpark Sports struggled during the pandemic, like many shops around the stadium, Abbadi says they're happy to be thriving once again.
"Last year, we had a great season. They had a great run in the playoffs as well, but hopefully this year you know we can win the whole thing," Abbadi says.
