If you're a diehard Yankees fan, you'll need to make sure you have Amazon Prime for this upcoming season.

According to Andrew Marchand of the New York Post, the Yankees will have 21 of their games exclusively on Amazon Prime Video. These games will be primarily on Friday nights.

The first game for the Yankees that'll stream on Amazon Prime Video is their April 22 matchup with Cleveland.

Unsurprisingly, the baseball world isn't a fan of this deal that New York made for the 2022 season.

"Honestly impressive what teams/MLB are doing to make games even less accessible," Andrew Battifarano of the New York Post tweeted.

"Not a fan of this trend in baseball," Nick Geddes of OutKick said. "Hard to see how the answer to getting more fans is making games less accessible. The older fan will certainly be turned off from this as well.

"Getting alerts from apps and beat writers for s--- I won't see for 30 seconds is gonna make my head explode," Eric Hubbs of Barstool Sports said.

"I love to see that Rob Manfred and company continue to have absolutely no intention of growing the game," one fan replied.

YES announcers like Michael Kay and Paul O'Neill will call these games for the Yankees.

Are you a fan of this move?
