O's Raise Tix Prices For '02; Other Seats Have Been Reduced
Published December 28, 2001
The Orioles, the only MLB team that didn't raise ticket prices from '98-01, will increase the cost of 80% of the seats at Camden Yards in '02, according to Roch Kubatko of the Baltimore SUN, who writes that the Orioles are "braced for a decline in attendance" and increased the cost of approximately 37,500 seats by as much as $5. The "highest jumps" involve lower box and club level seating between first and third base. Meanwhile, 1,887 seats in the right-field bleachers near the scoreboard have gone from $9 to $13 and have been renamed "Eutaw Street Reserved Seats." But the Orioles "have either maintained or lowered the price" of nearly 10,000 seats. About 5,300 seats in the upper deck have been reduced between $1-4, with 4,600 others remaining the same. Kubatko notes the club also "will continue to offer discount ticket programs" (Baltimore SUN, 12/28).
