Game 1 isn't a sellout?

Is it possible that the New York Yankees really aren't able to sell every ticket for an American League Championship Series game?

We're just getting started, with Tigers batting in the top of the first.

UPDATE: I'm here at Yankee Stadium and 15 minutes into this game and there are at least five sections almost entirely empty. And unlike Friday when it was much the same, the fans don't have traffic and bad start time as an excuse. So what's the deal? Tickets are low as $30 on stub hub ... Pete Abe is right, the old ballpark wouldn't be empty. Here's a shot during the anthem, and the section behind the foul pole is entirely barren.
