I heard from a bird the following tidbits:
- The Padres are going to be implementing variable ticket pricing for the Red Sox series and one of the Dodgers series. Basically, those games will be more expensive than other games. You can still get the going rate if you buy tickets in packages or through season tickets. I'm not sure which games they will be, but 8 games will have the increased ticket prices.
- Gameday walk-up tickets will be more expensive than if you buy them in advance.
- There were Barfield promos scheduled this season.
- Tony Gwynn and Trevor Hoffman will be key parts of the overall marketing campaign.
