NEW YORK (AP)—Fans will pay starry prices for this year’s All-Star game at Yankee Stadium.
Tickets will be priced at $150-$725 for the July 15 game, Major League Baseball announced Tuesday. That’s up from $75-$285 for last year’s game at San Francisco and $10-15 for box and reserved seats the last time the All-Stars were at Yankee Stadium, in 1977.
Tickets for the Home Run Derby and workout day on July 14 are $100-$650, an increase from $50-$225 last year. Tickets for the Futures game on July 13 are $50-225, up from $22.50-$125 last year.
Registration to buy tickets for the All-Star game and Derby began Tuesday on mlb.com, and a drawing will be held June 16.
