One man’s beer, is another’s parking.
At their introductory press conference Wednesday, the new owners of the Dodgers did have one immediate announcement:
Parking prices were immediately being reduced to $10 from the previous $15.
There’s some irony here, of course, since Frank McCourt purchased the Dodgers using equity he had in a Boston parking lot and the new owner’s first act is to lower the price of parking at Dodger Stadium.
Apparently, they were feeling their inner Arte Moreno.
Moreno was given great credit when he purchased the Angels in 2003, and one of his first acts was to cut the price of beer.
General parking at Angel Stadium, by the way, is also $10.
New team President Stan Kasten said the new parking fee will be in place when the Dodgers return for their next homestand on Monday against the Giants.
