ARIZONA FINDS THEIR DIAMOND AS TICKET SALES SURGE
Published March 15, 1995
The Diamondbacks "are on target to become the hottest sports ticket in town," writes Eric Miller in today's ARIZONA REPUBLIC. As of Tuesday, the number of orders for season tickets for the MLB expansion team had hit close to 18,000. The team began taking orders, with a $50 deposit, on Friday. Diamondbacks spokesperson Ray Artigue: "I think the Colorado Rockies were in the low 30,000s going into their first season, which is great. They broke expansion records. We're more than halfway there in only three days." Artigue estimated the cost of a season-ticket will average about $12.50 a game, or $1,012.50, and their goal is to have season-ticket holders pay for tickets and select seats by the end of '96 (Eric Miller, ARIZONA REPUBLIC, 3/15).
