The Kansas City Royal's losing season isn't stopping them from raising prices next year. The Wichita Business Journal reports the Royals are expected to hike ticket prizes 8.4%. The average price for a single ticket will go to $24.84, up almost two dollars from last season.

Average season ticket prices will be $19.17. Royals officials told the paper money from the increased prices will help with continued field improvements.
