Baseball fan calls foul on ticket vendor
Some ticket holders are calling a 'foul play' on vendors like Ticketmaster since most events are either canceled or postponed.
Dave Beauchamp was looking forward to his birthday family tradition of going to see a Yankees game. The Head of the Harbor dad purchased three tickets for a Yankees/Red Sox game. He bought the legend seats through Ticketmaster for more than $2,600.
The game was supposed to be May 10 so he called to request a refund but was told he couldn't get his money back because the game was postponed and may be rescheduled.
Beauchamp was not happy because even if baseball comes back this season, the MLB says there will be no fans in the stands.
"It's just a bad look for a billion-dollar company not to give people their money back," says Beauchamp. "To use certain language like postponed, let's call it what it is, it's canceled. The season for fans is canceled."
Beauchamp is not the only one having a problem. Numerous viewers on the News 12 Facebook page say they also can't get refunds for games, concerts and shows.
One viewer says Ticketmaster is holding everyone's refund hostage.
A spokesperson for Ticketmaster says, "Ticketmaster is actively working with event organizers to authorize refunds for rescheduled and postponed events."
Beauchamp says he plans to keep fighting for his refund.
