Angels Will Lower Prices to See Substitute Players
The Angels, who said Thursday that only 3% of last year’s season-ticket holders have failed to renew their ticket plans for the 1995 season, will reduce prices if replacement players are used.
“The early returns look great,” Angel President Richard Brown said, “but the candidate hasn’t been elected yet.”
The Angels have yet to set their ticket-price policy if replacement players are used, but Brown said there would be a substantial reduction.
“We have to constantly reassure people that they’ll be treated fairly,” Brown said. “The adjustment in price will depend on the replacement players.”
In other news, the Angels were informed that third baseman Spike Owen’s entire $3.25-million contract will count against them under the salary cap, even though the New York Yankees are paying $2.75 million of his salary.
However, it should have little bearing for the 1995 season because the Angels have a self-imposed $25-million player payroll.
