Did Frank McCourt's decision to sell the Dodgers spur fans to sign up for season tickets?
That's debatable. But the team says reduced prices did the trick.
The Dodgers' season-ticket sales are up 30% from this time last year, according to a person familiar with the team's business but not authorized to discuss it publicly.
David Siegel, the Dodgers' senior director of ticket sales, said there had been "no discernible bump" in sales in the days after last week's announcement that McCourt would sell the team.
Siegel said the Dodgers had experienced a "steady increase" in sales since the team announced price cuts two weeks ago, with a 50% increase in revenue over the first four days of ticket sales.
