Supply and Demand … What a Novel Idea!
According to Sports Illustrated:
Next season, San Francisco Giants fans buying single-game tickets for an April game against Milwaukee might pay half as much as they would for a weekend game with the rival Los Angeles Dodgers later in the year.
The club is trying something new with ticket sales in a few tough-to-sell upper-deck outfield sections of its waterfront ballpark for 2009: cost based on demand.
The walk-up sales price for up to about 2,000 seats could even go up or down on game day.
Granted, this is only an experiment in San Francisco, but what if the St. Louis Cardinals decided to do this as well? I would love for you to comment.
