Fans will have to pay a minimum of $30 to enter Dodger Stadium on days the New York Yankees or Boston Red Sox are visiting this year. The Dodgers on Monday introduced a four-tiered valuation system for individual game tickets, joining the legion of American sports franchises that have implemented variable pricing structures. The flip side is that tickets to a midweek game against the Arizona Diamondbacks will probably cost less than they did a year ago. "This is becoming the industry standard, not just in L.A., but in every sport across the country," said David Siegel, the Dodgers' senior director of ticket sales.

Two days after announcing they had suspended sales of season tickets, the Dodgers said late Friday that they would put what they called "an extremely limited" number of additional season seats on sale Saturday. If all those seats are sold, the Dodgers would surpass their record of more than 31,000 season tickets, set last year. If the supply of newly available seats is exhausted, the Dodgers plan to establish a waiting list, said David Siegel, the team's vice president of ticket sales.

Mission accomplished, Tacoma Stars coach Keith Weller came down Sunday after five days atop a 30-foot-high platform in a shopping mall parking lot. Weller, 45, climbed aboard the 6-by-12-foot platform last Tuesday to draw attention to the Major Soccer League team's push to sell season tickets. Team owners imposed July 30 deadline to sell a total of 4,000 season tickets, or, they said, the Stars could go under.

Dodger season ticket-holders who paid for playoff game tickets will either be issued refund checks or they can request that the club apply the money toward their 1992 season tickets, the Dodgers announced in a letter to season ticket-holders. In a letter sent in August, the club indicated that if the Dodgers did not qualify for the playoffs, money sent for playoff tickets would automatically be credited to season ticket-holders' 1992 accounts. A refund option was not offered.

Gardena Serra Coach Scott Altenberg is feeling the heat. His late father, Kurt , was a hero for UCLA football fans, catching the 52-yard winning touchdown pass from Gary Beban to defeat USC, 20-16, in the 1965 USC-UCLA game. Altenberg continues to have season tickets to UCLA games, but his Serra players have been picking USC lately. Robert Wood, Marqise Lee and George Farmer have ended up with the Trojans from Serra, leaving Altenberg feeling a little uneasy at Bruin games. Now UCLA is again trying to land several Serra standouts, including defensive back Adoree' Jackson and linebacker Dwight Williams.
