Letter: Fans pay $45 for White Sox parking

Owners of major sport teams are often called greedy. Maybe that is true of some owners but it certainly is not true of Jerry Reinsdorf, owner of the White Sox.

Mr. Reinsdorf could have jacked up the prices for tickets and parking for playoff games, but instead raised the price to park to just $45. Now $45 to park is not exorbitant. After all, the Sox could raised the cost to $65 or even $75. Some would argue that since public monies helped pay for the construction of the park, that the Sox could have shown their appreciation by not gouging the fans who buy tickets and park in the Sox parking lot.

The reason why owners of sport teams are millionaires/billionaires, is that most  fans are patsies.
