They may not have a general manager, and manager Tony LaRussa may be out the door, but the St. Louis Cardinals have made at least one decision, to raise some season ticket prices.
The team is in the process of alerting season ticket holders that about half of them will have the cost of their tickets increase for the 2008 season, according to St. Louis Today.
E-mails and letters have begun going out to season ticket holders to tell them of the price hike and to offer them an early chance to relocate their seats, should they elect to do so. Club president Mark Lamping confirmed the increase in cost Thursday, saying that it averages out to $1.15 a ticket, or a 3 percent increase.
“About half of our season ticket holders will be effected,” Lamping said from the organization’s meetings in Jupiter, Fla. “We believe that Cardinals tickets will remain a great value.”
