Slow Ticket Sales

John Ydstie talks with Wall Street Journal sportswriter Stefan Fatsis about slow sales for sports tickets and how basketball, hockey and baseball teams are trying to respond. The New York Knicks recently ended a 20-year streak of playing before sellout crowds at Madison Square Garden. Tickets for National Hockey League games barely edged up this season and several teams are having difficulty filling their arenas.
