Posted October 24, 2011 on AP on Fox
The Los Angeles Dodgers are lowering pricing for 96 percent of the seats owned by season-ticket holders in 2012. The team said Monday it will add new benefits for season-ticket holders in seven different sections of the stadium. It says more than 35,000 seats will be available for $20 or less per game for season-ticket holders. The team, beset by financial problems and a bitter divorce for owner Frank McCourt, saw its average attendance fall 18 percent to 36,236 this season and failed to draw 3 million in a non-strike year for the first time since 1992. Among the benefits the team will offer season-ticket holders is the chance to enter the stadium one hour before the general public to watch batting practice and to play catch on the field after select games.
