APSR

Select to view in PDF

314. That’s the total number of postseason games that have been played in Major League Baseball over the last decade. Each year, there is talk about how clubs that make it to the postseason earn incredible sums in revenues, but is that entirely true?

The answer is yes, although it is often indirectly. Making the postseason nearly guarantees increased season-ticket sales the following year, and can result in sponsorship and television deals in the multi-millions of dollars.

But, what about directly? How much ticket revenues do the clubs make in the postseason off the games themselves? The answer is, it depends.

To try and answer this question, I have come up with a new metric called Average Postseason Revenue, or APSR for short.

Explaining APSR

APSR is based on the following.

MLB has collectively bargained that required games of a given postseason series (if it is five games, then the first three; if it is a seven game series, the first four) has gate revenues broken down as follows:

  • 60 percent of the gate receipts to the players
  • 40 percent of the game receipts to the club hosting game

All games after the required games have been played have 100 percent of net gate revenues going to the club that is hosting a given game. One might ask why the owners retain all gate revenues after the required games. The reasoning seems to be that players could be tempted to throw games in order to have series run to their deciding games, if they were still collecting a piece of the revenue pie.

Estimates place that for a Division Series, a club earns on average $1 million off the gate for each required game.

As mentioned, this is an average. Clubs can have differing ticket pricing structures depending on variables such as seating capacity and overall supply and demand.

Much as there is an average that is pulled in for each required game in a Division Series, so is an average amount of ticket and other price increases from Division Series to League Championship Series to the World Series. Looking at several postseason pricing structures, APSR has been set as follows:

  • Increase in revenues from Division Series to LCS – 40 percent
  • Increase in revenues from Division Series to World Series – 100 percent

If this seems high, consider the following. The 2003 Yankee postseason ticket structure saw an increase of 51 percent from the Division Series to ALCS, and an 81 percent increase from the ALCS to the World Series, or an increase of 132 percent from Division Series to World Series in ticket prices.

By tracking required games and non-required games for a given series we can get the following net revenues with the APSR formula:

Division (required games)

  • Players: $1.5 million
  • Owners: $1 million

Division (above required games)

  • Players: $0 million
  • Owners: $2.5 million

League Championship Series (required games)

  • Players: $2.4 million
  • Owners: $1.4 million

League Championship Series (above required games)

  • Players: $0 million
  • Owners: $3.8 million

World Series (required games)

  • Players: $3 million
  • Owners: $2 million

World Series (above required games)

  • Players: $0 million
  • Owners: $5 million

Applying APSR to Postseason Games - 1999 - 2008

Using the formula, and looking at where each game of the postseason has been played from 1999 to 2008, we can determine which clubs have garnered the most in APSR. Remember, the number of games that a club hosts is not a barometer for how that club’s team is performing. It can be a case of competitive series in a given year, reaching max or close to max games, or it can be that a given club has gone deep into the playoffs. A good example is the Marlins which ranks 16th in terms of the number of games hosted, yet ranks 11th in APSR, or why the Rays pull in more APSR than the Philles. Lastly, a key reason that a given club can earn more APSR is due to how that club performed in the regular season. With many postseason series going close to, or at the minimum, the team that wins their respective division and posts the best record winds up having home field advantage, and thus hosts the first games for a given series (World Series now the exception due to All-Star Game outcome).

The following is a breakdown for the 24 teams that have made the postseason over the last decade by total hosted games, and their respective total APSR figure. Selecting the image above will provide you with a breakdown by club, which year they were in the postseason, the game(s) that that club hosted for a given series, and the APSR figure per series and corresponding overall total shown in the table below.

Final Thoughts

This is the first go of APSR. As more ticket information is available, or methods of adding other revenues streams may become available, adjustments to the metric will certainly be applied. Comments or questions are appriciated within this thread. Extra thanks go to Andy Zimbalist for assisting in the data and understanding of postseason revenue distribution. Extra thanks also goes to Rob Neyer who helped steer me in the direction of this metric.
