Though it is very small, the grass seating area behind the home bullpen at Jupiter, Florida’s Roger Dean Stadium was my favorite feature in the park – a nod back to the olden days in what is otherwise another cookie-cutter minor league stadium.
The berm is soon to be a thing of the past, a casualty in the never-ending quest for revenue growth, reports the Palm Beach Post.
The $15-$20 bargain area, where fans could sit on blankets and share banter with the relievers sitting on the benches a few feet away, is being converted to the exact opposite of cheap seating. Starting this spring, for $52-$60 each, 136 fans per game will be able to enjoy unlimited food and non-alcoholic beverages in the “Bullpen Club”.
The Bullpen Club will consist of two rows of seats and 20 tables that seat four each. Ticket holders will have access to a dedicated concession stand, allowing faster access to the unlimited fare.
Other prices for spring training seats at RDS are $15 for the 1,000-seat bleacher section, $28 for loge box and $29 field box seats. All are the same as last year except loge boxes are $1 higher.
