Red Sox Freeze Ticket Prices for 2012 After September Collapse

Nov. 8 (Bloomberg) -- The Boston Red Sox said they wouldn’t raise ticket prices for 2012 after the team lost a nine-game lead for a playoff spot in the final month of the Major League Baseball season.

“Many in Red Sox Nation have experienced economic difficulties, and every fan has gone through some trying times - - particularly at the end of the 2011 season -- as the team fell short of our goal of reaching the postseason,” team President Larry Lucchino said in an e-mailed statement. “The decision to hold ticket prices next season is just one of many ways we hope to show our gratitude.”

The team parted ways with manager Terry Francona, who led Boston to World Series titles in 2004 and 2007, after the season and let General Manager Theo Epstein leave the team for a job with the Chicago Cubs.
