According to the Rocky Mountain News, tickets to see the Yankees play the Rockies at Coors Field will cost more than other games.
The top tickets will be $75. Left field pavilion seats will be $45, $20 more than any other games during the season. Until Feb. 10, fans seeking Yankees tickets are required to purchase a package that includes games against the Royals and Devil Rays.
Meanwhile, the Baltimore Sun reports that tickets for all Yankees games at Camden Yards will cost more than other games.
A field box seat that would normally sell for $55 will be $65.
I’m not sure what to make of it. It’s supply and demand and that’s hard to argue with. I’ve paid a premium to see plenty of Springsteen concerts. But the Yankees as an organization seem to be getting stuck. The other teams are happy to make the Yankees pay a luxury tax then they make more money off them by raising ticket prices. That doesn’t seem right somehow.
