The Red Sox have announced their ticket prices for 2011. Yes, there are increases. You can read the whole press release here. From best I can tell, ticket prices overall will see only a modest increase — 2 % — but the bulk of the pain will be felt by the rich, with those in the more expensive seats seeing the biggest hikes.
As a result, a spokesman for the Republican National Committee just called this “the biggest ticket price increase in American history” and labeled the Red Sox “a socialist, confiscatory kleptocracy.”
Aren’t you glad people don’t talk about sports the way they talk about politics?
