Rangers lower price on most tickets for 2014 

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — After missing the playoffs for the first time in four seasons, the Texas Rangers are lowering the price of advance individual tickets on more than 90 percent of the seats at Rangers Ballpark.

The team also said Thursday that all seating sections will be subject to dynamic pricing this season. That policy applied last year to only two sections, about 20 percent of the seats. Adult ticket prices could be adjusted higher or lower for certain games based on market demand and factors such pitching matchups, day of the week and weather.

The team also said 28 of its 81 home games are designated as more expensive premier games. That is down from 36 last year.

Texas opens at home March 31 against Philadelphia.

 

Colts not expecting warm reception in New England

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Adam Vinatieri knows what to expect when he returns to New England.

It’s been eight years since the Colts kicker last put on a Patriots uniform, and he’s still bound to hear a cascade of boos.

Vinatieri won’t be the only Indianapolis player getting that reaction in Saturday night’s AFC playoff game. Indy (12-5) is returning to New England (12-4) with four ex-Patriots. One is former Super Bowl MVP Deion Branch and the other three played at Boston College.

The only ex-Colt on the Patriots’ roster is receiver Austin Collie.

Backup quarterback Matt Hasselbeck, who played prep and college ball in the Boston area, insists the fans’ reaction is not personal — and is more likely a sign of respect.
