I was surprised to see that the city of Delphos is implementing a new ruling on snow removal. I am not a resident there, however, I do have family and friends who reside there and I frequent there.
Cleveland Indians closer Chris Perez criticized the team’s fans over the weekend because they have not been flocking to Jacobs Field to watch the Indians, who are off to a good start, the way they did back in the 1990s.
Does anyone else find it a little annoying for someone making $4.5 million a year to be telling someone who might be making $50,000 a year to pay inflated prices to watch a baseball game?
I don’t have a drawer full of 1990s-vintage Indians ticket stubs to compare with today’s prices, but I did find one from a 1996 trip to Fenway Park. I sat in the field boxes, seven rows from the field, between home plate and the third-base dugout for $23. That same ticket costs $135 this year, if you can find one in that location. If the price had risen at the same rate as inflation the last 16 years, that ticket should cost $34 today.
Maybe if Perez looked at the dollars and cents, it would make sense to him why there are so many empty seats.
