Wednesday, November 03, 2010 - 04:13 PM
There are serious fringe benefits to liking a team that keeps losing. From MLB.com:
Coming off a second consecutive fourth-place finish in 2010, the Mets on Wednesday announced a pricing program that will reduce the average cost of a ticket by more than 14 percent next year. In total, the team reduced the face values of 62 percent of Citi Field's 41,800 seats.
Som single-game tickets will actually go up, from $11 to $12. But the Mets increased the percentage of tickets available at $15 or less.
Season-ticket holders, ticket-plan and group-ticket customers will also receive an additional 10 percent discount on their tickets.
