Individual Game Ticket Sales
The African Queen called this morning to inform me that Our Washington Nationals sold out the remaining few thousand seats for Opening Day in less than 10 Minutes. Knowing that was a Hot Ticket and some might have been shut out--how did the process work for anyone wanting Single Game Tickets to the remaining 80 regular season games?
Did you get what you wanted?
Did the online sales process work?
What adjustments to the process need to be re-worked, if anything.
As always, its important to know.
PS: And yeah--I am still in Texas. In fact, we drove right past The Texas Rangers Ballpark in Arlington this morning while covering some canvassing. Nothing struck me more than noticing that this stadium--once again--has changed its name--for the third time since its inception. Originally--The Ballpark In Arlington. Later--Ameriquest Field. Now--Rangers Ballpark. OK--can we come to the conclusion that--despite the monies raised for naming rights--not many fans really care about those corporate names? Except for any teams bottom line--do the corporations actually receive value in return?
It's a good debate. Of course--I can't wait for Old Navy "Yard"--Northrup Grumman, GEICO, Capital One Field or whatever name New Nationals Park ends up with. Because--once Nationals Park hosts its very first game--The South Capitol Street Ballpark will always be called Nationals Park by me.
Only Old Navy Yard will be an acceptable change--otherwise.
Nationals Park @ The Old Navy Yard is just SO PERFECT--even without the corporate sponsor.
