Tiger Woods explained why the golf tournament he hosts, the AT&T National, lets kids 12 and under in for free:
“We don’t want to have what happened at Yankee Stadium. Tickets are so overpriced that you can’t bring the family. We want to have everyone come out and enjoy being in a family atmosphere, walk around, have a good time and not have it cost an arm and a leg.”
This from a guy who, according to Forbes, made $110 million in 2008.
Congratulations to the Yankees. They’ve managed to make even Tiger Woods blanch at their ticket prices. Meanwhile, they haven’t sold out a game since Opening Day and the team looks better than it has in several years.
The good news is that if you get a seat in right field, odds are you’ll catch a home run. Probably two.
