THANK YOU NOTE: MLB Giants President & CEO Larry Baer yesterday sent a letter to season-ticket holders that read in part, "For years we have admired and appreciated the enthusiasm and loyalty of our fans. This season I was awestruck. No team in baseball has what we have. Not even close. As we dropped in the standings after our World Series Championship season, you stuck with us" (MERCURYNEWS.com, 10/8).
IT AIN'T EASY BEING GREEN: In Dallas, Mike Heika notes while the Stars "didn’t sell out" their first two games at American Airlines Center this season, the team got 16,100 for the opener and 17,200 on Saturday. Stars Owner Tom Gaglardi said, "Right now, that’s a great increase over what we were doing, and a great sign that people are excited. I’m really pleased with what we have been able to do to get people interested, and I think we’re making a lot of progress in that area." Gaglardi also is "happy with the official debut of the new uniforms." The Stars put "a lot of time and money into rebranding the team with a new color (Victory Green) and a new logo." Gaglardi said that he "felt the impact was clear in both games" (DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 10/9).
