Yankees Manager Joe Torre on MLB's decision to increase the cost of LCS and World Series tickets: "I've always marveled at how much a seat costs on the floor of a basketball game. And we have a long way to go before we reach that" (N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 8/13). Also in N.Y., Speranza & Breen write under the header, "Fans Boo Series Tix Hike. Cry Foul As Cost Doubles For Best Seats In House" (N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 8/13). In Cleveland, Hoynes & Maxse report that "reaction was mixed" on the increase among fans attending last night's Rangers-Indians game (PLAIN DEALER, 8/13). ...Vikings Owner Red McCombs told Sid Hartman in Minneapolis that the blackout rule was one of the "first subjects discussed at the recent NFL meeting." McCombs: "We were told by commissioner Paul Tagliabue that he wants the blackout rule strictly enforced and he will deal with any club that breaks it." Hartman: "What it means is the league no longer wants television stations and other corporations to buy out a big number of tickets so games can be televised" (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 8/13).
