Significant changes were expected following the sale of the Wichita Wind Surge to Diamond Baseball Holdings and new president Jay Miller taking over.

One that already took place was the adjustment of ticket prices for both membership season seats and individual game tickets for the 2023 season. The latter, which goes on sale this Saturday at 10 a.m.
