For 8th straight season, no price hike for Pirates

BY foxsports • December 12, 2009

For an eighth consecutive season, the Pittsburgh Pirates won't raise season-ticket prices - the longest such stretch without a hike in the major leagues. The Pirates haven't boosted season-ticket prices since a much-criticized increase following their 100-loss season in 2001. One plan for 2010 offers a full 81-game package for $399, an average of $4.93 per game, and another offers box seats for $999. The club's home attendance this year during a major league record-setting 17th consecutive losing season was 1,577,853, the Pirates' lowest since PNC Park opened in 2001.
