MAGIC REALLY DON'T GIVE IT TO THEIR TAMPA BAY FANS
Published April 26, 1995
Magic fans in the Tampa Bay area were unable to buy tickets for the team's opening playoff series. Magic Ticket Manager Ashleigh Bizelle ordered Ticketmaster to sell only to outlets in and around Orlando, but did not include Tampa or St. Petersburg, just over an hour's drive from Orlando. Bizelle: "We were trying to avoid problems with scalpers getting a hold of a lot of tickets. We won't do this again" (Bill Fay, TAMPA TRIBUNE, 4/26).
