Astros Freeze Ticket Prices for 2009

"We really thought long and hard about the right direction to go because obviously the revenue that we generate helps fund what we do everywhere else in the business,” Astros president of business operations Pam Gardner said.

I would be impressed with the show of humanitarianism in this move, if  we weren't supposed to face deflation in the next year -- making freezing the ticket prices an indirect increase on the price of a ticket.  Great PR and marketing move though. (I'll also note the article indicated they'll still raise prices on Diamond Club and Suite seats, so at least they're only really screwing the big guys).
