MOVING ON UP: In Toronto, Morgan Campbell reported MLS Toronto FC for the July 24 MLS All-Star Game at BMO Field "installed two rows of field-level chairs," and some season ticket holders are upset that the team "never gave season ticket holders the chance to upgrade" their seats. Season-ticket holder Frank Garzelli said that the team "told him last week the seats were temporary," but added that a Toronto FC official "told him on Thursday that seats are there to stay and that the team would consider allowing Garzelli to purchase them as season tickets next year at a higher price." While Garzelli "thinks the move is a blatant cash grab," club officials said that the team is "just scrambling to supply a demand that keeps surging" (TORONTO STAR, 8/2).
INVESTIGATION CONTINUES: An MLB source said that Red Sox Dominican Scouting Supervisor Pablo Lantigua "was fired last month for receiving a kickback of an unspecified amount on a player he recommended." Lantigua's "name came up as a result" of MLB's investigation into the skimming of signing bonuses from Dominican players (BOSTON HERALD, 8/3).
