Major League Baseball is not immune to the downturn in the economy, especially the teams with new stadiums to pay for such as the New York Mets and New York Yankees. The New York Times recently reported about the problems season ticket holders are having this year getting rid of their extra games that in the past were a “no brainer”.
Of course both of these teams are playing in new ballparks, the Mets at Citi Field and the Yankees at the New Yankee Stadium, and the prices have been jacked up to pay for the new stadiums so the profit margin has shrunk dramatically, even without the recession.
Most of the other teams are struggling as well. The Tampa Bay Rays hosted the World Champion Philadelphia Phillies last week and Tropicana Field was only half full according to the website Philly.com. And you can look at ticket prices for most of the other teams in the secondary market and get baseball tickets for less than face value for many of the games.
So if your looking to get out to a ballgame and you want to get the best price and seat location, check out our selection of MLB Baseball tickets, you’re sure to find a game worth going to!
