Dodgers to raise ticket prices up to 140 percent due to ‘unprecedented’ demand
Summary of 2 articles · Updated Feb 2, 2014
David Siegel, the Dodgers' vice president of ticket sales, said the new prices reflected what he called "unprecedented" demand for tickets. The hottest ticket in Los Angeles could prove to be the most expensive as well after the Dodgers announced plans to increase ticket prices on Friday. In some cases, the prices will increase by as much as 140 percent, Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times reports. But the Dodgers aren't just in the business of winning baseball games, they're in it to make money, too. But at least the Dodgers are being forthright with their reasoning. When demands for tickets go up, as they obviously have with Los Angeles showing a commitment to winning and stacking their roster with superstars fans want to see, the price goes up with it.
