Ticket prices for MLB games vary widely based on the team, the opponent, the location of the seats, and the specific game. For instance, seats behind home plate or dugouts are typically more expensive, while seats in the outfield or upper decks are generally cheaper.
Prime seats for popular teams or high-demand games (such as rivalries or playoffs) will be more expensive.
The average price of a Major League Baseball ticket can vary greatly depending on the team and the ballpark, but typically, the average price for a regular season MLB game was around $30-$50. This is a ballpark figure and prices can certainly be higher or lower depending on the team, opponent, game importance, seat location, and other factors.
Teams with large and devoted fanbases, or those with recently successful seasons, can have higher average prices. For example, teams like the New York Yankees, Boston Red Sox, and Los Angeles Dodgers often have higher average ticket prices due to their popularity and large market size. Conversely, MLB teams with smaller markets or less recent success may have lower average ticket prices.
Here’s a general range as of 2023/2024:
- Cheaper seats (Upper deck, outfield, etc.) can range from $10 – $30 per ticket.
- Mid-range seats (Lower level outfield, upper-level infield, etc.) can range from $30 – $100 per ticket.
- Premium seats (Close to the field, behind home plate, or along the baselines) can range from $100 – $500+ per ticket.
Again, these are very rough estimates and prices can vary significantly based on a variety of factors. Some high-demand games (like playoffs, rivalries, or games with popular teams) can see prices much higher than the ranges above. Please note that in addition to the ticket prices, there may also be additional fees such as service fees or delivery fees.
