In Miami, Barry Jackson reports that after the Marlins' recent personnel moves, "several fans" who made partial payments for '98 season tickets "have requested and received refunds." But team VP/Sales & Marketing Jim Ross said that while 500 people made partial payments on '98 season tickets -- ranging from $100 to $400 -- fewer than 10 have asked for a refund (MIAMI HERALD, 11/25)....In Denver, prices increased for 68% of the seats at Coors Field for the '98 season, "most dramatically" in the lower deck, from $22 to $25. If all seats are sold, the increases will generate 8% more revenue than in '97. The team will keep about 30% of tickets the same cost, while 1,500 seats will be reduced (DENVER POST, 11/25)....The "Hanson Brothers" -- of "Slap Shot" fame -- performed during the IHL Rafales- Admirals game Saturday night. The game drew 10,480, Milwaukee's largest crowd of the season (JOURNAL SENTINEL, 11/23).
