It’s not your imagination. I compared to 2016 prices and they’re significantly higher. I bought 12 tickets (4 tickets x 3 games) in 340 and it was over $1000

I am one section over.  Bought 2 games x 4 tickets and spent  960

I probably just screwed up the whole season for everybody.  Skipped the Wild Card Round, but got tickets to every ALDS and ALCS game (except ALDS Game 1 since I'll be on a sailboat that day).

I am confident we win the division.  I skipped the Wild Card round too.

Got WC game 1 tickets and ALCS Game 4 tickets.

 

Hoping neither game takes place.


I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

For this year's ALCS, upper reserved seats are $180, even in the LF sections that they mostly don't sell tickets for. Those same seats are $120 for this year's ALDS, so maybe the O's are pricing more aggressively this year.


I bought a flex plan for 2024 so I could get in on the pre-sale. ALDS was $60, ALCS, $95. Going to ALDS game 2, ALDS game 5, and ALCS game 1 (potentially).

Os pitching is 7th in ERA. 6th in fWAR on the year.

 

 

From July on,  2nd in ERA and 5th in fWAR.

 

 

This is all of baseball mind you. Not just AL ranks. Pretty pretty good.

If you go on ESPN.com to the scoreboard, and look ahead to Saturday for the Division Series, it has the little ads for buying tickets. 

 

Dodgers. Tickets as low as $27

Braves. Tickets as low as $78

Astros. Tickets as low as $54

 

 

Orioles. Tickets as low as $144!!!!!

I saw that too. I'm watching the Rays game now and they aren't even sold out. I guess we're the hottest ticket in town.

I'm no Rays fan but that team deserves so much more love from a city than what they get.  Really embarrassing in my opinion and you know the players wish they were somewhere else.

The Rays game only had 79% of tickets sold ....and they only hold 25K in the first place. Pathetic they didn't even draw 20K.

Apparently the Rays have learned nothing and plan to build their new stadium right back in St Petersburg where everyone hates to go.

Eh. It’s a two way street. Set aside the fact they’re on the wrong side of the Bay. You think Angelos is cheap with advertising and the $ they put into MASN? The Rays are worse. The whole thing is built around the notion that fans NOT care at all about the players. Only the laundry.

In-park attendance was up markedly as well - 1,936,798 (23,911 avg.) in '23 vs. 1,368,367 (16,893 avg.) in '22, increase of 568,431 (7,018 avg.), 41.54%. Only the Phillies and Reds had greater increases. Meanwhile, that other team MASN covers had the second-greatest decline - only the White Sox were worse.

Went to an O's Rays game in Tampa a couple years ago. My two main impressions... it was very weird and "stale" watching baseball in a dome, and concession prices there were outrageously high to me.

The concourses seemed too narrow and I'd imagine that when they DO "fill" the place, it's an absolute nightmare trying to get around. Felt like you were walking around the Baltimore arena circa 1990, and only slightly more up to date.
