“Variable pricing better aligns tickets with market value. By pricing tickets according to demand, we can significantly lower ticket prices for our local, core fans, who are more likely to be able to attend weeknights in April, May, and September.” -- Sam Kennedy on throwing the variable pricing pitch

“Numerous factors influence our annual ticket pricing decisions. We strive to maintain affordability and ticket accessibility while still generating the revenues necessary to fuel our baseball operations, to fund continuing improvements to the ballpark, and to make enhancements to the fan experience - the three main areas in which we reinvest our revenue.” -- Larry Lucchino offers his take on taking 4.8% more in 2014
