Why are there always different people in the seats right behind homeplate? I thought those were for season ticket holders. Or are they like corporate seats and different companies/corporations get to sit there throughout the season?
I’ve noticed during games at Dodger Stadium that some of the faces are similar from game to game. I was just wondering why there always seem to be different people in the seats behind homeplate in St. Louis.
People buy season tickets, then sell off the tickets they don’t want to use on eBay, Craig’s List, Facebook, etc. The faces you see during a playoff games usually are the owners of the seat. Similarly, many season tickets are owned by corporations who give them out to whomever they want to. There aren’t many people that go to 81+ games themselves. Same goes for other seats in the stadium besides the ones behind home plate.
I have a family member who worked for a company here in Southern Indiana that had season tickets right behind home plate at the old Busch. There were 5 or 6 people who got to use them and they only got to pick, I believe, 2 games to attend. The rest all went to customers and clients. I’d assume that’s how a lot of season tickets are. My dad and I did get to use them a time or 2, back in the McGwire days when I was in middle school or high school.
