STEINBRENNER DEFENDS TICKET PRICE HIKE, WANTS NEW STADIUM
Published November 3, 1994
Yankees owner George Steinbrenner defended the club's decision to raise their top ticket price from $17 to $25 yesterday, noting it only affects 4,200 seats. Steinbrenner said it has grown "increasingly tough" to stay competitive on the field because of "the archaic configuration of Yankee Stadium limits luxury boxes, and hence revenue." Steinbrenner, on the "new, state-of-the-art" AL ballparks in Chicago, Baltimore, Texas, Cleveland: "They all get tremendous revenue opportunities. I'm dealing with a stadium with 18 suites while they all have at least 75 suites." The $25 seats will feature arm rests, cushions and waiter-waitress service (Anthony Gargano, N.Y. POST, 11/3).
