Published January 25, 2011
SPRING FEVER: In Philadelphia, Jeff Janiczek reports demand for Phillies Spring Training tickets "has exploded." The team "has already sold 15,000 more tickets to spring training games in Clearwater, Fla., this season than it did in 2010, and those sales are expected to continue to grow over the next month." The Phillies "saw an immediate increase in the demand for all ticket packages" when P Cliff Lee was signed in mid-December, and the demand for Spring Training tickets "has been no exception." Phillies VP/Ticket Sales & Operations John Weber said six of the Phillies' 15 Grapefruit League games at Bright House Field are "sold out or very close to selling out" (PHILADELPHIA DAILY NEWS, 1/25).
