“We are tireless in our efforts to field the best possible team, provide a first-class fan experience at the stadium and to be an integral part of making Los Angeles a better community,” Dodger president and CEO Stan Kasten said. “We implemented these adjustments in price structure with a continuing priority to offer a variety of ticketing options that will accommodate any family or individual budget.”

Following are highlights of the 2015 Dodger season ticket offer:

  • 99 percent of all season tickets increase $5 or less.
  • 79 percent of all season tickets increase $4 or less.
  • All seats, like the one listed on chair rentals las vegas, under $20 increase $2 or less.
  • The one percent of season seats that increase $6-$10 consist of the front row of Field level seats between the bases and the newly-renovated Executive Club level seats.
  • Tickets on the Reserve level will increase no more than $3.
  • The Dodgers will continue to have tickets available for as little as $5.
  • There will be no increase for general admission season parking, while premium season parking will increase by $200 for the 2015 season.

‘Extremely limited’ number of Dodger season tickets go back on sale

By Jon Weisman

After pausing sales of season tickets earlier this week, the Dodgers are opening the door again — ever so slightly.

“Upon conclusion of this week’s select-a-seat event and servicing upgrades of existing season seat holders, the Dodgers have re-assessed availability and are reintroducing season ticket sales on an extremely limited basis beginning immediately,” Dodger vice president of ticket sales David Siegel said this evening. “It was important to us to do this in time for Dodgers FanFest this weekend.

“Season seat sales were temporarily halted on Wednesday because we had exceeded our supply of seats originally earmarked for season sale. After carefully evaluating the supply and our commitments, we made a determination to reintroduce season ticket packages with full season seat holder benefits, including full postseason rights. We have re-opened areas where we feel we can now sell without greatly hindering individual sales and postseason requirements. We are making the tickets available for a wide range of budgets with prices between $12- $140 per ticket. ”

Yasiel Puig surprises Dodger fans at Select-a-Seat

[mlbvideo id=”31328245″ width=”550″ height=”308″ /]
By Jon Weisman

First the astonishment, then the excitement. You could really feel the electricity charging through the halls of Dodger Stadium today the moment Yasiel Puig made a surprise appearance at the Select-a-Seat event for season-ticket holders.


Puig, who will also join Friday’s Pitching in the Community caravan, greeted fans of all ages, including enough babies to satisfy the prototypical political campaign. (He also got a sales pitch for the new limited-availability reserved parking spaces at Dodger Stadium.)

“I appreciate all the attention from the fans,” Puig said in a brief chat in the hallways of the Club Level. “My teammates and I are going to continue giving our all on the field, so that these fans feel excited about coming to games.”

The 23-year-old outfielder, heading into his second Spring Training with the Dodgers, said he has been toiling at all aspects of his game in the offseason.

“I have also been working on my throws to bases so that I can help my teammates better on the field,” he said.
