Fun With Ballparks: The Stadium Shape Up

Major League Baseball's stadiums are like snowflakes: no two are alike. Whether it's a hitters' park, a pitchers' park, or somewhere in between, every field takes its own unique shape. Can you spot your team's digs?

TBA: How Not to Price Your Tickets

Sky Andrecheck breaks down just how awful the new Yankee Stadium's ticket pricing debacle is. In particular, how much the Yankees expect people to pay vs. how much people intend to pay on Stub Hub. He also brings up the issue of overpriced luxury seats forcing people to buy cheaper seats, which forces more people to miss games due to fewer affordable seats. He also looks at ticket pricing in general which I didn't realize has been very inconsistent with inflation. Even adjusting for the lowered dollar, tickets are more expensive today than they were 15 years ago. Some of that, though, is, as Andrecheck says, due to more diverse pricing. Seats come in more varieties, and prices have grown at different rates by level, which I think actually makes a lot of sense. Getting as much as you can for seats while dividing them in to many different pricing groups I would believe maximizes both profit and attendance. Just don't over-estimate things as bad as the Steinbrenners.
