Yankees Close To Deal With Ticketmaster After Opting Out Of StubHub Contract
Published December 11, 2012
IN OR OUT? ESPN CHICAGO's Jon Greenberg noted the Cubs yesterday were "named by StubHub as one of three clubs opting out" of the contract extension with MLB, but this was "news to the Cubs." A Cubs source said that the team was "surprised to be included in a StubHub email to ticket sellers Monday, because no decision has been made about participating in the five-year contract extension, but the team plans to make an announcement about the secondary market in the near future" (ESPNCHICAGO.com, 12/10).
