Published June 4, 1998
Pacers Dir of Public Relations Mike Henn said that 95.2% of the team's approximately 8,500 full-season ticket holders have renewed for next season, according to Sean Horgan of the INDIANAPOLIS STAR-NEWS. Henn said that interest in the team has increased with its appearance in the Eastern Conference Finals. Henn: "Generally in past seasons, we're usually right at about 90 percent. That 5- point jump is really significant" (INDIANAPOLIS STAR-NEWS, 6/4). In other news, the Pacers divided their playoff pool of $579,250, with each player receiving "approximately" $40,000 after partial shares were given to support personnel. The players awarded a partial share to Ann Hart, wife of longtime equipment manger Bill Hart, who died during the past season (INDIANAPOLIS STAR-NEWS, 6/3).
