Thanks for your patience as we get back into the swing of things. To answer your questions about the pavilions, the reason they look different right now is because they’re completing some work with the concrete underneath the benches. There won’t be any noticeable differences in the pavilions when you show up on Opening Day, as the benches will be put back in before then. There will be one difference, though, in the right field pavilion, which some of you might have read about this morning in the L.A. Times. The pavilion will be an all-you-can-eat ticket for $35 (or $40 if you buy it on the day of the game). This was something we tried last year and fans really seemed to like it, so we’re going with it for ’06.
I noticed the one comment on the blog that was not a proponent of this change but I ask you all to give it a shot. There are obviously people who really enjoyed this opportunity last year and for those that don’t, they can simply choose to sit elsewhere in the park and it should have no affect on them whatsoever.
On a side note, while the L.A. Times article is correct in stating that the least expensive day-of-game ticket will be $10, it failed to point out that we still will have $8 tickets, provided you get them in advance. I think it’s important that fans realize that we’re still trying to provide affordable entertainment for everyone.
In regards to the Dodger Fan Rewards program, we are still waiting on some detailed information from Sports Loyalty Systems, the third-party company that operated the program. We hope to have the information shortly, so thanks for your patience.
