The Blue Jays announced a price increase for their top tickets, except for season-ticket holders, according to Larry Millson of the Toronto GLOBE & MAIL. The most expensive field-level seats jump from $25 to $27.50. In addition, all home night games will begin at 7:05pm ET, 30 minutes earlier than previously (GLOBE & MAIL, 12/19). BLUE CHRISTMAS: The Blue Jays dismissed Dir of Marketing Paul Markle and VP/Development Christine Legein.

SCHEDULE SNAFU: On April 19, the Jays and Raptors are each scheduled to play a 1:05pm home game at the SkyDome. Raptors President Richard Peddie: "We're looking at solutions and we hope to announce something shortly." The Jays have priority at the stadium (TORONTO SUN, 12/19).
