Angels, Rams, Douglas Suffer Punishment, This Time From Fans

November 03, 1990

The following is an excerpt of a letter sent to Angel President and CEO Richard M. Brown:

Thank you for your invitation to renew the four season tickets I have held since 1977. It is not in the least surprising that, in the renewal letter, the organization lacked the intestinal fortitude to explain the rationale behind a 22% increase in tickets, and a 25% increase in parking over 1990. Since 1988, ticket prices have risen 38% and parking a whopping 43%.

I should not expect more from an organization that treats its fans with the same class it has treated players such as Brian Downing and Doug DeCinces.

I know the Angels are not forcing anyone to renew their tickets. However, there are probably enough baseball junkies, who even in today's economy will find a way to meet your price. Many of them may even welcome the opportunity to help pay Mark Langston's salary via the millions in additional revenue you will generate.

Mr. Brown, I hope in my lifetime the Angels put out a product on the field that can stick it to the opposition the way the front office has been sticking it to their fans.
