Bernie Madoff’s New Seat

Citi Field dunk tank is Bernie Madoff's seat

For those who are unaware, the Wilpons’ financial adviser Bernie Madoff was forced to give up his pristine seats behind home plate due to the economy. Tough luck how these difficult financial times are affecting everyone.

However, a new, similarly special seat was set up for Mr. Madoff, as you can see above. The view of the game is not quite as nice as his Delta Club Platinum digs, but he will be much closer to the Shake Shack and have an excellent opportunity to raise cash — while enjoying conversation with fans.
