CRACKING DOWN: In Chicago, Danny Ecker wrote the Cubs are "cracking down on season ticket holders that it says exploit their seats on secondary ticket sites." The team yesterday "sent 'non-renewal notice' letters to about 40 accounts." The letter states in part, "After careful consideration, we regret to inform you we have decided not to renew the license for your account. As a result, you will not be offered the opportunity to purchase season tickets for the 2013 season." This marks the "first time the Cubs have done such a purge." Cubs VP/Communications & Community Affairs Julian Green said that the notices "will have no impact on other season ticket holders that sell some or even most of their seats on secondary sites like StubHub." Those that were sent letters were "identified as account holders that are more systemic in their reselling practices" (CHICAGOBUSINESS.com, 10/24).
