NEW YORK (AP) -- State Assemblyman Richard Brodsky says the New York Yankees have produced only a fraction of the documents subpoenaed as part of his investigation into whether the team's new $1.5 billion stadium is a good deal for the city.
The Yankees turned over documents at a legislative committee hearing Friday in Manhattan. But Brodsky said they weren't all the records legislators sought on the ballpark's tax-exempt financing and ticket prices.
Team president Randy Levine called the assemblyman's inquiry a "witch hunt."
Brodsky is a longtime critic of the stadium deal, which is backed by hundreds of millions of dollars in public subsidies.
The price was estimated at $800 million when announced in June 2005.
The stadium is due to open April 16.
If you can't take the scrutiny, don't ask for a break from taxpayers.
