9 Days Until Opening Day: Ticket Availability

Opening is only 9 days away, and, unfortunately, there aren’t many tickets available. The game, which almost always sells out, has starting prices for $93 dollars online, and is even more expensive on the third party sites like StubHub and TiqIQ.

When one goes to, they see all of the games on the right. Most are at reasonable prices, and then there is Opening Day, with prices five times more expensive (which should be expected).

When one clicks on the “Buy” button, they get the dreaded Check Inventory page, which usually means there is little to nothing left.

After proceeding, you get directed to a newer version of main page, which I’m still a little new to, and don’t really like…

Strangely enough the lowest price available doesn’t match the price given in the original page, which is very confusing.

Honestly, $249 + fees is way too much for a ballgame, especially a regular season one. Hopefully the StubHub market will take the price down to double digits, which would be a little more reasonable, at least for me.
