From the AP:
With a month and a half to go before the baseball season, more than 3 million tickets have been sold or committed for 2006 games at the new Busch Stadium, St. Louis Cardinals president Mark Lamping said Friday.
In fact, demand is so great that the team on Friday cut off further sales of season tickets after selling 27,500 – which translates to nearly 2.3 million tickets at the season’s 81 games.
Combine that with 300,000 in group ticket sales, 117,000 sales of four-game packages, 86,000 tickets for party rooms and picnic areas, 120,000 for team obligations such as players’ wives and other friends of the organization, and 170,000 giveaway tickets for military personnel, clergy and amateur baseball coaches, and a bit more than 3 million tickets are spoken for.
Read it and learn. This is exactly what it’s going to like with the “new” Yankee Stadium. Actually, I expect the last year of the current Stadium to be like this as well. Yankees tickets will be like gold in the near future.
