MLBMLB may be on pace to break all-time season ticket sales… again. As reported yesterday, the Dodgers are on pace to break season ticket sales, but they aren’t the only ones seeing up-ticks in sales. While many clubs are just now releasing individual game sales, many clubs are reporting increases. As Eric Fisher of the Sports Business Journal reports:

  • The Yankees have sold nearly 3.3 million tickets for the upcoming season, with their full-season-equivalent ticket sales of more than 34,300 standing as easily the highest in baseball and more than 650 above their 2006 total.
  • Mets ticket sales are up more than 30 percent so far, and club officials are projecting a year-end total of about 3.8 million.
  • In Chicago, the White Sox are targeting their first year above 3 million in attendance.
  • The Cubs’ season-ticket waiting list spiked by more than a third, to 35,000 people due in part by the hiring of Lou Piniella and the off-season spending spree.
  • The Cardinals have used their World Series title to secure a staggering 98 percent renewal rate for their season-ticket base.

Other mid-to-low tier clubs are seeing bumps as well, including Philadelphia, Toronto, Milwaukee, Texas, San Francisco, and Tampa Bay, which is expected to see “an attendance bump of about 100,000 this year to nearly 1.5 million, which would be its best season at the turnstiles since 1999.”
