One of the best players in San Diego Chargers history will be on hand to see his jersey number retired in a ceremony this season. The Chargers will induct LaDainian Tomlinson into their hall of fame during halftime of the team’s Week 11 game. The November 22 game is scheduled to be played as a part of Sunday Night Football against the Kansas City Chiefs. It will be the third to last home game for the Chargers for the 2015 season and third of three home primetime games.
On the secondary market, Chargers tickets for the game against the Chiefs currently have the least expensive average price for a home game. The $162.43 average price is 19.2% below San Diego’s regular season average price across all eight home games. Only a Week 4 game against the Cleveland Browns will have a less expensive get-in price ($27) than the $33 ticket against the Chiefs.
The running back spent his first nine seasons in San Diego, amassing 1,2490 rushing yards and 138 rushing touchdowns. Tomlinson then spent the final two seasons of his career with the New York Jets before retiring following the 2011 season.
Tomlinson will be just the fourth Charger to have his number retired by the team. The other three are Lance Alworth (19), Dan Fouts (14) and Junior Seau (55). He will be the 38th member of the Chargers Hall of Fame, which will included his name placed in the Ring of Honor in Qualcomm Stadium. Tomlinson ranks fifth among the all-time leading rushers in NFL history with 13,684 yards in 11 seasons. Every other member of the top 14 all-time leading rushers have been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Needing at least five years after retirement, Tomlinson would be eligible for induction in 2016.
