Angels, unlike the Dodgers, hike prices

Angels hike ticket prices; Dodgers’ prices remain the same

 

In the grand tradition of teams sticking it to the most loyal of fans after a winning season, the Angels have announced a price hike for the 2009 season.

 

According to the Los Angeles Times, the Angels have raised season ticket prices by an average of 6.4 percent. The price hike comes in the wake of Commissioner Bud Selig’s caution flag regarding team spending during the faltering national economy.

 

The price hike comes in sharp contrast to the Dodgers, who have offered fans the opportunity to renew season ticket packages at last year’s prices. To be fair, Team Marketing Report lists the average ticket price for the Dodgers at $29.66, while the Angels were at $20.78, not including luxury seats.

 

Of course, you would know nothing of the price hike if you went to the Angels Web site.  The site is currently soliciting potential season ticket customers, who are required to submit a $500 deposit per seat with a six-ticket limit. Deposits are non-refundable (surprise).
