Royals Sticking it to Their Fan(s)

Kansas City Royals FanI guess when you only finish 24 games below .500 in a season, it’s cause for celebration. And what better way to say thanks to your faithful stadium-goers than by sticking it to them. That must be the mentality around Kansas City, where the Royals have decided to reward their fans by jacking up ticket prices:

The average price for single-game tickets will jump nearly 15 percent next year to $23.76 a seat under a new pricing structure unveiled Tuesday afternoon by the Royals.

“No matter how low we can demonstrate that these prices are, it’s still money out of someone’s pocket. And yes, we are sensitive to it. But there’s just no way of getting around it. It’s part of the equation to make the franchise competitive.”

It was the club’s third increase in four years.

Hmm, third increase in four years? I guess they’re really committed to winning in KC. Hey from 56 wins to 62, to 69 in the last three seasons, you could be headed to a World Series sometime around 2015. Not bad. I guess you gotta pay that Odalis Perez contract somehow, right?
