Tickets Newsbeat

Sports teams are phasing out hard tickets; why - redeyechicago.com

Fans who buy 2015 White Sox season tickets will get their choice of the best available seats, a special pin and hat, a media guide, the option to buy postseason games, parking discounts and invitations to special events.
What they won’t get are the tickets.
“I just called them and expressed my displeasure,” season ticket holder Merrill O’Ryan, 49, said. “If I don’t have that paper ticket anymore ... I won’t be able to save it in a scrap book.”

The Sox will require season ticket holders to print tickets off a computer or use smartphones for scanning. (They can pay an additional $20 for hard tickets to be mailed). Three other MLB teams also have dropped hard tickets.

Dog eats baseball playoff tickets

the Royals’ ticket delivery system.

“I went outside and I found basically this, scattered all over the place,” he said holing up shredded cardboard and papers.

Breslaw’s seven-month-old 80 pound Burmese mountain dog names Fezzik got to the tickets first, chewing at them like they were a T-bone steak.

“I guess when that friendly man in the blue shirt put this new toy over the railing, it was irresistible,” Bredlaw said.

On the bright side, it’s still better than the Royals’ ticket delivery system.
