Yankees to repay $68K in back rent

The Yankees say they'll pay New York City $67,574 in back rent on their old stadium. Under its rental agreement, the baseball team can deduct some maintenance costs from its rent.

An audit being released Wednesday by Comptroller William Thompson found improper deductions, including some payroll, security and stadium repair costs.

The team and the city are still haggling over another $63,888 in rental credits from last year.

The city Parks Department owns the old Yankee Stadium. The Yankees began playing in their new stadium this month.
