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.
So much for the Yankees being smarter with their money, but in a league where Scott freaking Kazmir can get 22 mil for two years from frugal Oakland maybe this is reasonable. Baseball is nuts. They won't be able to sustain this kind of craziness.
