ROYALS: In K.C., Bob Dutton wrote the Royals, despite a third-straight 100-loss season, will raise ticket prices for the second time in three years. The increase applies to all seats in Kauffman Stadium and ranges from a $1 increase in the corners of the upper deck “to a $25 jump, from $200 to $225, for the crown seats.” The Royals’ average ticket price of $13.71 in ’06 was the lowest in baseball. Team officials said that the average “will remain less than $15” in ’07 and that “more than 20,000 of their 40,758 seats will sell for less that $14 when bought on an individual-game basis.” Also, tickets for eight games will be offered at a 50% discount to residents of Jackson County (MO) “in return for county residents approving a referendum to fund a renovation of Kauffman Stadium” (K.C. STAR, 10/14).
