With Father’s Day at hand, taking in a ball game with “the old man” is always a great option. But, what are tickets going for on the open market? Who has the best deals? Here’s a breakdown of what’s up for grab on Father’s Day as of 6/18.
Out of all 15 MLB games this weekend, the lowest average prices of tickets can be found in Denver when the Rockies take on the Brewers ($30.25), as well as in DC when the White Sox are at the Nationals ($30.00). The highest average asking priced tickets are found in Boston for the return of Manny at $136 (see how much tickets are actually selling for this weekend with this Forbes article, Red Sox Fans Paying Extra to See Manny Being Manny), as well as New York for the Mets - Yankees game ($116).
Remember, this is how much prices are on the resale market, not what they are transacting for (for example, the numbers can be skewed if someone tries putting a ticket up for sale for $1 million). Still, it’s an interesting look this Father’s Day.
