With prices remaining the same for the fourth straight year, the Tourists are once again offering full- and half-season ticket packages in three seating areas. The traditional box seats are $462 each for the entire campaign and $280 for a half-season plan. Full-season packages are $1,799 in the Bojangles Dugout Suites, which feature on-field seating and all-you-can-eat seat service, with half-season plans in the same area selling for $980 per seat. The team has also added a full-season package in the Press Row seats, located in the chair-back area just below the press box, which are $700. General admission season tickets, also available only on a full-season basis, are $301 each.
The Tourists provide numerous benefits for all season ticket holders. In 2012, the advantages include 15 percent off all team merchandise, guaranteed giveaway items, a season ticket holder road trip, and a meet & greet and cocktail hour with the entire team at Fanfest. Other perks include a weekly Tourists e-newsletter, the “Never A Wasted Ticket” program, and payment plans along with a personal account representative.
“After having a great year in 2011, plans are already in full swing for an even better season in 2012,” said Tourists president Brian DeWine. “We are always seeking input from our fans and especially our season ticket holders and we’ve tried to incorporate as many of their ideas as possible in making Tourists baseball as affordable and enjoyable as possible every time they come to McCormick Field. We felt that avoiding an increase in ticket prices if at all possible was important, and we’re pleased that we are able to maintain that again this year.”
The Tourists are also offering a variety of Flex Plans, which include undated tickets that can be used for all games over the course of the season, excluding July 4. The 100-game Flex Pack is $721 for box seats and $567 for general admission. The 50-game Flex Pack is $412 for box seats and $309 for general admission, while the 10-game Flex Pack is $96 for box seats and $67 for general admission.
Single-game tickets will go on sale in March, with an exact date to be announced later this offseason. The wait for the start of the season is a little shorter this winter. The Tourists will open their home slate on Thursday, April 5, against the Delmarva Shorebirds, which is 10 days earlier than the team’s home opener in 2011. After a four-game series versus the Shorebirds, the Tourists will then welcome the West Virginia Power to McCormick Field for a three-game set, from April 9-11. The home schedule features a July 4th date against the Augusta Green Jackets as well as 12 Thirsty Thursdays and 11 games each on Friday and Saturday evenings and Sunday afternoons.
