Cheaper tickets, some with food/merchandise credits
Ticket plan rebates
Beer specials all over the park
Allowance of food/water to be brought into the stadium
All of these items are great ideas for making fans feel welcome at the ballpark, and given the current state of the Astros’ postseason hopes in 2012 the club probably should look to do whatever it can to keep their fan base’s attention. Fans don’t like high ticket prices or high food/drink prices, so the teams should certainly consider going after those things to demonstrate that they can appreciate the fans’ interests (and their wallets).
