Ticket prices going up
This may have appeared in the mainstream media, so excuse me if I'm late to the story. In any event, I'm told by several Padres season ticket-holders that their seats will be more expensive next year. They received a renewal notice calling for increases of 5-9%. Two of these folks have field level seats, and I'm told at least some of premier seats will be more expensive in 2013. I don't know if prices for other seats also will go up (the Padres made no mention of raising ticket prices at yesterday's news conference introducing the team's new owners). My flip reaction: Giants and Phillies fans have money to burn, now the Padres will get more of it.
