The St. Louis Cardinals have announced an increase in season ticket prices for the 2009 season, albeit not across the board. The increase coincides with Major League Baseball's 80th All-Star Game on Tuesday, July 14, at Busch Stadium.
The Cardinals will see a 1.6 percent increase, based on a weighted average for 2009, according to notifications sent to season ticket holders.
"We are committed to using the same general pricing structure as in 2008, with only a few changes that reflect the dynamic nature of our seating mix," said Cardinals' President Bill DeWitt III. "We are being very sensitive to the trends in the general economy while also being faithful to our longtime season ticket holders. Our fans have many entertainment options, and we feel that Cardinals baseball continues to represent great value for individuals, families, and corporations.â€ť
The Cardinals will require their season ticket holders to remit a $100 per seat deposit by the end of October to secure their seats. The balance of their accounts will be due in February.
