POLS GET BEST SEATS IN HOUSE
By BILL SANDERSON
August 8, 2007 -- The Mets and the Yankees will make sure city officials have a special place to root for the home teams in the new ballparks expected to open in 2009.
The Mets' Citi Field and the new Yankee Stadium will both set aside a luxury box for their use, a Parks Department spokesman said yesterday.
The city has long had a luxury box in Shea Stadium. City officials don't have one at the current Yankee Stadium, where a lack of luxury boxes was a big reason the team wanted a new stadium.
