We actually cut our marketing budget this year. Instead, we’re really reaching out to the fans and trying to focus on what’s most important to them. All the dollars we earn will be (reinvested) back into the team. There are no owner distributions or anything like that. So to the extent that we grow revenues back, money is going to be poured back into the team. Those investments will be in scouting and player development, baseball operations, and other things to help position us on the field for success in the future. At the same time, we’ve made other investments in ticket sales and service. We feel that’s important to keep our fans happy and help grow our fan base.
