Approaching 30 games into the MLB season, teams around the league are finding out what’s working and what’s not. A team’s place in the current standings isn’t definitive, but is telling to where they may end up at the end of the season.
This weekend around Major League Baseball is highlighted by a number of divisional series on the east coast in both the National and American League. With information provided by ScoreBig.com, below are the three highest-priced tickets on the secondary market for MLB games this weekend.
Most Expensive: 5/8/2015 | Washington Nationals vs. Atlanta Braves | Nationals Park | Average Price: $102.85 | Get-in Price: $20
The Nationals have dusted themselves off from their abysmal start to the season after being deemed World Series favorites before the first pitch of the year was even thrown. Washington is now (as of 5/8) one game below .500 after winning seven out of their last 10 games. The Nationals took over the baseball news circles on Wednesday, as Bryce Harper launched three home runs in an afternoon affair against the Miami Marlins. Harper finished 3-for-4 with five RBIs, while Max Scherzer struck out 10 batters over seven-plus innings, as everything appears to be fine in our nation’s capital — for now. Nationals tickets may be hot for this NL East series as they continue their resurgence.
5/10/2015 | New York Yankees vs. Baltimore Orioles | Yankees Stadium | Average Price: $100.98 | Get-in Price: $17
5/8/2015 | New York Yankees vs. Baltimore Orioles | Yankees Stadium | Average Price: $83.75 | Get-in Price: $19
5/9/2015 | New York Yankees vs. Baltimore Orioles | Yankees Stadium | Average Price: $81.48 | Get-in Price: $22
The Yankees host the Orioles for the next three highest-priced games on the secondary market behind the aforementioned Nationals-Braves meeting. Although it is still early on the season, many people would have predicted the Yankees and Orioles would be flip-flopped in the standings. New York sits in first place of the AL East division, and have gone 7-3 in their last ten games. Baltimore, meanwhile, sits in last being two games under .500, and enter this series on a three-game losing streak. The most expensive Yankees tickets for the series are for Sunday’s 1:00 p.m. affair.
5/9/2015 | Toronto Blue Jays vs. Boston Red Sox | Rogers Centre | Average Price: $75.62 | Get-in Price: $10
Blue Jays tickets to enter Rogers Centre on Saturday have a get-in price of only $10 to see two AL East teams only separated by a half-game compete against one another. Toronto is coming off a series victory against the first-place Yankees, taking two out of three games at home, while the Red Sox are in the midst of a funk, having lost five of their last six. Furthermore, their starting pitching has been atrocious, ranking 29th in all of baseball in team ERA. The bats should be active this weekend as the powerful Blue Jays offense looks to take advantage of Boston’s glaring weakness — its pitching — in what could be a high-scoring series
