Thoughts and pictures of my local minor league baseball team the New York Penn League Connecticut Tigers; a Detriot farm team. We'll still be looking at former Navigators/Defenders players along the way....

Tuesday, November 16, 2010

From today's Hartford Courant by Don Amore:


"The Yankees released their ticket prices for 2011, keeping about half of them the same, tweaking the price of others. No surprise, there will be some increases.

Bleacher seats are going from $12 up to $15, and premium seats, the ones that were overprices to begin with and slashed in 2009, are going to to back up slightly, from $250 to $260. These seats were originally $325.

Some other seats will go up $5 or $10 per ticket.

They have not yet determined the 2011 price for those famous "Legends Suite" seats near home plate.

There will be some specials and discouts available.

The Yankees, as is their recent habit, analyzed the prices tickets were commanding on sites like Stubhub and raised prices of seats that were being sold for more than face value. Yankees CFO Lonn Trost told AP:

"We're not trying to take away the ability of fans to make a profit when they resell tickets but the ones where we raised prices were not selling for just above face, but were far above face."

We're just passing that along. ... anyway, the Yankees averaged

46,491 per game last season, tops in the major leagues."

And there's a pretty good women's bb game on tonight; good tickets remain.
