LEFTIES: Purchase tickets through team site, not third-party upsellers

Online sites like Stubhub charging higher ticket prices

Lefties warning fans about web ticket upsellers

PORT ANGELES — Due to a rise in online third-party ticket resellers the Port Angeles Lefties are letting fans know to only use the official team website paleftiesbaseball.com to purchase game tickets.

If a Lefties fan conducts a web search for Port Angeles Lefties tickets, several sponsored ticket reselling websites appear including StubHub, Vivid Seats, TicketSmarter etc.

These legitimate third-party companies charge fans higher ticket prices than those sold on the Lefties team website.

For example, a search on Stubhub for Lefties tickets for their Thursday season opener with Bend lists grandstand tickets at $15 apiece; general admission for $28 and reserved seats at $32.

The actual price of Lefties tickets through the team website is $6 for general admission, $13 for premium seats and $18 for Diamond Club.

Hasek touting bans

PRAGUE — Russian and Belarusian athletes must state loud and clear they condemn Russia for the war in Ukraine or be banned from next year’s Paris Olympics, hockey gold medalist Dominik Hašek said.

Hašek, who won gold with the Czech Republic team at the 1998 Winter Olympics in Nagano, said he is certain their presence at the Paris Games would otherwise result in “a huge promotion of the Russian war.”

The NHL great has been a prominent and vocal critic of the International Olympic Committee’s recommendation that Russians and Belarusians compete in international competitions as neutral athletes.

”They would represent the aggressive, imperialistic war and the crimes and killings linked to it, “ Hasek said.

He said it would be like supplying Russia with tanks, aircraft and ammunition.

The IOC and president Thomas Bach have shaped the definition of neutrality — not publicly supporting the war, nor being contracted to the military since the invasion began in February 2022, competing without flag, anthem or national colors.

The 2024 Summer Olympics open next year in Paris on July 26.
