Mets Cut Ticket Prices Mostly Due To Economy, Not Losing Season

|Mets Ticket Price Cuts Among The Deepest
Being Pursued By Any Team For '10 Season
CITI ON DOWN: Howard said that the tickets with the "largest declines will be in sections on the field level and second deck that adjoined lower-priced seats." He noted that fans "tended to avoid those higher-priced sections in favor of seats nearby that were cheaper." The Mets might "expand the number of clubs at the stadium that fans can visit next year" (N.Y. TIMES, 10/2). In N.Y., Bart Hubbuch notes the Mets also plan to "cut prices by reducing the number of games classified as 'gold level' in their variable pricing system and making those games part of the two cheaper designations, 'bronze,' and 'value.'" The Mets appear to have "learned from their disastrous experiment to sell individual tickets on a monthly basis -- rather than making the entire schedule available before the season" (N.Y. POST, 10/2).
Mets Not Fearing Typical Second
Season Attendance Drop At Citi Field
GOING DEEP: In N.Y., Joe Ward writes Citi Field appears to be "fan friendly," but "is the field too large?" The team previously indicated that it has "no intention of making any alterations to Citi Field" for next season, but "should the Mets think about moving home plate 10 feet forward so they could shorten Citi Field's dimensions without having to knock down any walls?" The Mets designed the new ballpark "to be a pitcher-friendly park, just as Shea Stadium was often thought to be," but whether they "want to admit it or not, the Mets might have gotten more than they bargained for" (N.Y. TIMES, 10/2).
