Last season, 78% of the country didn’t attend a single game, and even 61% of those who consider themselves true baseball fans didn’t make it to see the boys of summer either. With the current economic recession, that’s as much of a concern for the owners as winning the pennant.

    I have been hearing people complain about the cost of tickets to the Yankee ball games. I am a newspaper reporter, and did not ask them about it, but rather they told me how they felt. The prices seemed steep to me, but when I hear what others feel, it verifies my own feelings.
