The New York Mets announced today that they will be cutting season ticket prices by at least 10%, according to ESPN.com.
“The Mets are sensitive to the economic realities facing our fans and we have lowered our ticket prices in response to these challenging conditions,” Mets executive vice president Dave Howard said. “This move underscores our appreciation of our fans’ ongoing loyalty and support.”
And you know what I love most about this story? That the Mets call home Citi Field.
I remember sitting in the upper deck at Shea during 2007 – at the height of the loose credit mania, probably right at the end of the Third Turning – when they did an artists rendition of the new Citi Field on the scoreboard, highlighting all its luxuries. Ooh! Aah!
Man, how things have changed in just two years!
