LE BASEBALL: EXPOS HOPING FOR STRONG SEASON TICKET SALES
Published November 16, 1995
Expos President Claude Brochu said baseball is entering a new era and he hopes that will translate into better ticket sales for the team, according to the Toronto GLOBE & MAIL. Brochu: "We know we're going to play in '96, so it should be favorable from a season-ticket base and from a group-sales base. With the way the season ended with a good World Series and good playoffs, and the fact we have a new television deal, it makes things much more positive." He also says there is a "new baseball" resulting from the strike and there will be a much more reasonable approach to clubs spending money for "years, years and years to come." Brochu said the Expos are in the process of renegotiating their lease at Olympic Stadium as the team still does not get any revenue from parking or corporate suites (Danny Gallagher, Toronto GLOBE & MAIL, 11/16).
