Skipjacks roll back prices to correct 'stupid' hike in '90

August 21, 1991|By Nestor Aparicio | Nestor Aparicio,Evening Sun Staff

For the first time in their 10-year history, the Skipjacks announced yesterday that they are cutting ticket prices in two categories for this season's AHL games at the Baltimore Arena.

Upper concourse general admission seats will be $5, down from $7 last season, and end lower reserved seats will be $9.50, down from $11. Prime seats in the lower concourse will be $12, up from $11, and middle concourse seats will be $9.50.

"I did a very stupid thing by raising the upper deck prices last season," Jacks owner Tom Ebright said. "I made that decision myself and I think we've now corrected that problem. We want more fans to be able to attend more regularly and we hope that cheap seat -- the bleacher ticket -- will accomplish that."

The team also released its 1991-92 schedule in conjunction with the price changes.

The biggest surprise in the scheduling is the heavy home slate early and late in the season. Nine of the first 12 games and five of the final six will be played at the Arena.
