Tiptoeing through Public Domain Documents

I don't think this is especially ground-breaking, but this is kind of a cool document. Check out pages 12 (for ticket revenues) and page 4 for concessions. I tally about $39.4 M from ticket sales $6 M from concessions.

Anyone remember what deal the Twins made with FSN? Was that $10 M per year?

I thought it was $8 million a year from FSN. For certain it was between $8 million and $12 million.

I think they get $1M a year from KSTP-AM 1500. Not sure what the rest of the "Twins Radio Network" gets them.

Tickets + concessions + TV + radio just about equals 2008 payroll?

And this doesn't count any league revenue (revenue sharing, MLBAM, etc.). Interesting.

Well, other forms of revenue.....

Advertising

Money from MLB (TV contracts, radio, other)

Profit sharing from the Big teams that pay from their profit

Minor League revenue

General licensing

+ I think Wally kicksback 5% of his beer selling revenue

They get up to $1 million a year from KSTP, plus the advertising revenue... WCCO paid them $3 million but got the advertising revenue.

I find it unlikely that the Twins' minor league revenue outstrips minor league costs, especially if we are including signing bonuses in minor league expenses and not the major league payroll.

Twins Geek, thanks for adding something different and very interesting to the blogging mix. Good Sunday morning reading. Will the revenue from the new stadium also be in the public domain?
