Twins Hold Season-Ticket Prices, Launch Renewal Drive Around All-Star Game
The Twins' season-ticket prices for '14 will "remain unchanged for a third consecutive season," according to Dennis Brackin of the Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE. Twins President Dave St. Peter said that market research indicated that the team "might have been able to raise season prices 'in certain areas,' based partly on the club hosting the 2014 All-Star Game and the perks season-ticket holders receive for that game." St. Peter: "But based on our struggles on the field, we felt it was in the best interests not only for our team, but ultimately a tip of the cap to our fans to leave prices where they’re at." Brackin notes next year's All-Star Game is "the centerpiece" of a season-ticket renewal drive. Ticket priority for the event "will be based on several factors, including season-ticket tenure, size of ticket play (premium, full-season, 40- or 20-game) and number of tickets held" (Minneapolis STAR TRIBUNE, 8/27).
