Supply, meet demand: for the third straight year the Mets are going to reduce season ticket prices. This in the face of attendance dropping off seven percent in 2011:
Next year, no full 81-game season-ticket holder will pay more than this year, and more than 80 percent of them will have their ticket prices fall at least 5 percent. Tickets in about half the ballpark will be $25.
Also, the Mets, like so many other teams have already done, are going begin a dynamic pricing program in which marquee games are priced higher than bad games. No word on how they’ll account for the fact that the Mets are going to be playing in all of the games.
Braves minor league first baseman Braxton Davidson played the hero during the Arizona Fall League Championship Game on Saturday, but followed up his game-winning homer with what appeared to be a broken left foot.
Braxton had just lofted a 2-1 pitch from Nationals left-hander Taylor Guilbeau in the bottom of the 10th inning and was making his way around the bases when he started hopping on his right foot as he neared the plate. After being helped off the field, that the infielder was quickly taken to a local hospital for further examination, the results of which have yet to be made public.
The 22-year-old helped lift the Peoria Javelinas to their fifth AFL title and second since 2017. He went 2-for-5 with a single and home run in Saturday’s finale over the Salt River Rafters. During the regular season, he completed his third consecutive campaign in High-A and slashed .171/.281/.365 with a career-high 20 home runs and a .646 OPS through 481 plate appearances.
