The Mets have released pricing for Opening Day 2013, and it shows that the Wilpons have no clue about how to run a baseball team that has a disgruntled fan base.
Mets Blog reports that the cheapest ticket will be $63, with prices rising to $460. In contrast, that same cheapest ticket will cost just $12 for the second game of the season.
Fans are already pleading with the Wilpons to sell the Mets, accusing them of being cheap, money-grubbing owners who won’t spend money on the team; do they think this latest price gouging really helps their image?
The Mets know people want to attend Opening Day and that it will likely sell out. The Wilpons see this as a way to make a quick buck so they are going for it, regardless of the disgust the fans will probably register.
Once again the Wilpons are showing no regard for the Mets loyal fan base. They’d better be careful — loyalty has its limits.
