Athletics Lowering Ticket Prices

By  | 

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - The Oakland Athletics are lowering ticket prices by an average of 10 percent for next season.

It will mark the third straight year the A's have not increased season ticket prices and decreased some. The small-market, low-budget club says it will offer season packages designed to maximize flexibility and value. For example, for as little as $198 per seat, fans can choose 22 of the top games for 2010.

The team will offer a new "Free Parking Tuesdays" for non-premium games on that day.

Jim Leahey, A's vice president of sales and marketing, says the franchise recognizes the economic challenges and is committed to making the ballpark experience "as affordable as possible."
