LOS ANGELES (AP) — It’s going to cost more to attend Los Angeles Dodgers games in 2014.
The team said Thursday that ticket prices are increasing in many sections of Dodger Stadium for the first time in two years.
Team president and CEO Stan Kasten says the new ownership first wanted to prove to fans that it was committed to putting the best possible team on the field, provide a good fan experience at the stadium, and reach out in the community before it raised prices.
Last month, the team surpassed 3 million in attendance, the first major league club to do so this season.
The biggest increase is for front row seats between the bases, which will go up by $30 a game. Rows two through eight will increase by $20.
The team says that the price for more than 45,000 seats will increase by $3 or less, and that 58 percent of the 56,000 seats at Dodger Stadium will have season tickets available for $20 or less. Some field level seats are available for less than $20 per ticket, less than in 2006.
