The first month of the 2011 MLB season has officially been played out, and thus fans have seen some great moments and some surprising struggles. No one could have guessed that the Boston Red Sox, after some serious off-season upgrades to their roster, would have a winning percentage below .500.
We’re not sure, even in Cleveland, you would have found anyone betting the Indians would have the best record in the American League as of May 5. The Tribe is flat out playing the best ball in the MLB right now. Can they stick out through the summer months and be a legitimate World Series contender?
There is still a ton of baseball to be played, no doubt. But through April, how has a team’s success or struggles effected their ticket prices? Check out our monthly MLB tickets update below.
MLB tickets update: May
Our pre-season ticket rankings found that Red Sox tickets, Yankees tickets, Blue Jays tickets, and Phillies tickets were among the hottest in the league. How do our pre-season rankings (according to each team’s overall average ticket price) match up to their average ticket prices now? Check out our Top Ten below.
- Boston Red Sox tickets: $131
- Toronto Blue Jays tickets: $107
- Minnesota Twins tickets: $85
- Chicago Cubs tickets: $85
- Chicago White Sox tickets: $80
- New York Yankees tickets: $78
- New York Mets tickets: $67
- Baltimore Orioles tickets: $65
- Tampa Bay Rays tickets: $65
- Houston Astros tickets: $63
Yankees tickets are always atop of the league in terms of their average ticket prices, so it is somewhat surprising to see them drop out of the top 5. Red Sox tickets are always in high demand though, as they keep their pre-season ranking of #1 .
