Most if not all Dodger fans know that in August Vin Scully and Sandy Koufax are being honored with a bobblehead night. August 7th for Mr. Koufax and August 30th for Mr. Scully if I'm not mistaken. It's understandable that these games are going to be highly desirable and mostly likely will sellout. What pisses me off is that you can't simply buy tickets to either one of these games. In order to buy tickets to either game, you have to purchase at least a mini-plan. While I wish I was able to buy a mini-plan, let alone season tickets, I know for a lot of people this simply isn't possible.
What really pisses me off is the fact that this is almost exactly what Frank McCourt did when the Yankees played out here. You couldn't buy a ticket to a single game, you had to buy tickets to at least the whole series. I felt like the Dodgers were doing an excellent job of distancing themselves from McCourt, but this feels like a giant slap in the face. I know the team has to make money, but forcing fans to buy a mini-plan, or in my case tickets off of StubHub or Craigslist, just doesn't feel right. I expected more from the new ownership.
So is anyone else pissed off by this? Or should I just quit my bitching and whining? Haven't heard much discussion about this, so I'm curious to hear what others think. By no means does this mean I'm going to be any less of a fan or less supportive of the new owners, just doesn't seem like this is the right thing to do when you're trying to get the fans back after they stayed away pretty well last year.
