Angels raise prices on some season tickets

The Angels have raised the price of some season tickets, cut the price of others and frozen prices on parking, concessions and single-game tickets.

The Angels also added “preferred” seating categories on the field and terrace levels, with Angel Stadium now divided into 32 categories.

For a year in which the All-Star game will be played at Angel Stadium, with season-seat holders guaranteed the opportunity to buy an All-Star game ticket, the Angels raised season prices by an average of 4.1%, spokesman Tim Mead said.

The steepest increases included the dugout MVP seats, up from $80 to $85 per game, and field all-star seats, up from $35 to $43. The decreases, generally in sections far from home plate, included terrace box seats, down from $24 to $21, and right-field pavilion seats, down from $15 to $13.

The Angels also offer four season tickets for the price of two in selected sections.

The Angels’ average ticket price last season was $20.05, ranking 19th among the 30 major league teams, according to Team Marketing Report.

“We consider ourselves to have some of the lowest ticket pricing in baseball,” Mead said, “particularly when you see what this organization has done in recent years.”

Not forgotten

Angels players treated Nick Adenhart as one of their own last season. They maintained his locker, carried his jersey wherever they went, poured beer and champagne atop his jersey after clinching a playoff berth.

They also voted him a full playoff share, and Monday they found out how much that will be worth to his family -- $138,038.51.

Adenhart, one of three people killed by an alleged drunk driver in an April car crash, was voted one of 43 full shares.
