From Appearance In World Series
TICKET SUIT: In Denver, Arthur Kane reports the Rockies settled a lawsuit with fan Jeff Sobieck, who "wanted to buy World Series tickets and resell them for more than three times the face value." Sobieck sued the team for $13,306 plus the costs of 12 tickets, claiming that he had confirmations for the tickets and his credit card was charged $4,694. He received an e-mail October 24 "saying his order had been canceled." Terms of the settlement were not disclosed (DENVER POST, 10/31).
PRICEY RIDE: The Red Sox yesterday held a parade to celebrate their World Series victory, and in Boston, Dave Wedge reports the police patrol for the event will cost taxpayers near $2M, with "none of it" being paid by the team. While the cost for the parade is unknown, the '04 celebration "cost the city $535,000 in public safety expenses" and the total "World Series Run cost the city $1.9[M]" (BOSTON HERALD, 10/31).
