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.
I still would like to see some reaction from the writers if the failed test holds up. Many of these writers are the same guys who vote in the Hall of Famers each year and make a big show about not allowing in users like Bonds and McGwire.
