ANGELS WE HAVE HEARD ON HIGH, JAYS WILL RAISE TICKET PRICES
The Blue Jays announced a price increase for their top
tickets, except for season-ticket holders, according to
Larry Millson of the Toronto GLOBE & MAIL. The most
expensive field-level seats jump from $25 to $27.50. In
addition, all home night games will begin at 7:05pm ET, 30
minutes earlier than previously (GLOBE & MAIL, 12/19).
BLUE CHRISTMAS: The Blue Jays dismissed Dir of
Marketing Paul Markle and VP/Development Christine Legein.
Team VP/Business Bob Nicholson said that the moves are the
result of a restructuring of the business operations and the
positions would not be refilled (TORONTO SUN, 12/19).
SCHEDULE SNAFU: On April 19, the Jays and Raptors are
each scheduled to play a 1:05pm home game at the SkyDome.
Raptors President Richard Peddie: "We're looking at
solutions and we hope to announce something shortly." The
Jays have priority at the stadium (TORONTO SUN, 12/19).
