Dodgers Maintaining Structure On Most Season-Ticket Prices
Published October 19, 2012
NEW ADDITION: The Dodgers Thursday hired Rays Senior VP/Baseball Operations Gerry Hunsicker as Senior Advisor/Baseball Operations. He will assist GM Ned Colletti and President & CEO Stan Kasten. Hunsicker was with the Rays since’05. He also was Astros GM from ’96-’04 (Dodgers). MLB.com’s Ken Gurnick notes Hunsicker is the “first front-office addition since Guggenheim Baseball Partners bought the club in May.” Hunsicker “helped establish Tampa Bay's academy in Brazil and has been instrumental in sharpening the club's international focus, an area the Dodgers consider a high priority” (MLB.com, 10/19). In L.A., Steve Dilbeck wrote, “This hiring smells suspiciously like a Kasten maneuver. Kasten made it clear since he arrived in May, he wanted the Dodgers to have greater impact in the international market.” This is “addition without subtraction, the Dodgers’ makeover ongoing” (LATIMES.com, 10/18).
