Texas RangersUPDATE: The Rangers have released corrected numbers for two classes of seats. See below. We also suggest reading Demystifying Who Sets World Series Ticket Prices

When you haven’t won a postseason series ever, then tapping into your now rabid fan base ahead of everyone else has to be understandable.

For the Texas Rangers, that means announcing ticket prices and availability for possible World Series games.

Individual game tickets for possible 2010 World Series games at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington will go on sale at 9:00 a.m. CT, Sunday, October 17. Anyone thinking of going scalper crazy, think again. Individuals may purchase a maximum of eight tickets per World Series game. Ticket prices for possible World Series games at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington:

  • Lower Infield; Lexus Club Infield; Lexus Club Box - $250.00
  • Lower Box; Corner Box; Lexus Terrace Box - $190.00 (incorrect number was $150)
  • Lower Reserved - $150.00 (incorrect number was $125)
  • Upper Home Run Porch; Upper Box; Upper Reserved; Bleachers; Grandstand Reserved - $  75.00
  • Standing Room - $ 50.00

And, you’ll need a bit more than this. There will be an additional service fee charged for tickets purchased online or over the phone.

There is a possibility of up to three World Series games that could be played at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. The 2010 World Series is scheduled from October 27-November 4. The three games in Arlington would be Game 3 on Saturday, October 30; Game 4 on Sunday, October 31; and Game 5 (if necessary) on Monday, November 1.

The Rangers add that World Series tickets will not be on sale at the Rangers Dallas and Fort Worth ticket offices. They are also touting that they have Luxury Suite rentals remaining for possible 2010 World Series games.

Tampa Bay RaysThere's been a lot of talk about how the Tampa Bay market may, or may not, be lackluster when it comes to the Rays. After all, they did give away 20,000 tickets to the last regular season game.

However, everyone loves an elimination game, and Tuesday will be the case for the Rangers and Rays as they play Game 5 of their ALDS at The Trop.

This time, the Rays will get some extra revenues.

That's because the Rays announced today that they will remove the tarps from the upper level of Tropicana Field for all remaining 2010 postseason games, adding approximately 5,000 more seats, some of them obstructed, to the capacity. Tickets for these seats-beginning with Game 5 of the American League Division Series, held tomorrow (Tuesday, October 12)-are now available for $30 at all Rays ticket outlets.

Rays fans, gobble them up.

MLB Division Series Play Seeing an Average of 45,051 in Attendance PDF Print E-mail

2010 MLB Postseason

Through 13 postseason games, Major League Baseball has seen an average of 45,051 in paid attendance. With larger ballparks seeing action in the postseason last year, the number is a decrease of 7.84 percent from the 48,884 average over the same number of games for LDS play last season.

The highest attended game, thus far, in Division Series play has been 53,284 for last night’s Giants-Braves game from Turner Field. That game, along with the Rangers game on Sat are the two postseason games to crack more than 50,000 in attendance. Last year saw 5 such games, with the Metrodome, Dodger Stadium, and Yankee Stadium seeing the high figures. Other high notes this Division Series include the 44,599 that attended last night’s Phillies-Reds Game 4 of the NLDS from Great American Ballpark, a new all-time single-game attendance record for GABP.  The 51,746 for Game 3 of the ALDS between the Rays and Rangers on Saturday at The Ballpark in Arlington was a complete sellout.

The Rays have seen at or near sellout games with 35,474 for Game 1 of the ALDS with the Rangers this past Weds, and 35,535 for Game 2 on Thursday. The numbers are likely to increase on Tuesday with the deciding Game 5 seeing David Price going up against Cliff Lee (8 p.m. ET – TBS) for the right to play the Yankees in the ALCS. Attendance is also likely to remain high when the Giants take on the Braves tonight at Turner Field (7:30 p.m. ET – TBS) in Game 4 of the NLDS.

Locked and loaded. The Brewers keep
ticket prices the same for 2011.
(CLICK TO SEE IN LARGER VIEW
)

It wasn’t that bad for the Brewers in 2010. No, we’re not talking how they fared in the standings, but rather how they did in attendance.  Given their small market size, the Brewers drew 2,776,531 in paid attendance for 2010, the 11th best attended club in the league. By comparison, they drew better than the Mets and Braves.

Owner Mark Attanasio has seemed to understand the market from the second he took over the franchise: make baseball affordable, work on fielding a competitive team, and people will come.

Today, the Brewers look to continue that direction as they announced that there will be no change in ticket prices for 2011. The price freeze will be in effect for all tickets, including both season and single game tickets. While many clubs have froze some ticket prices, few have locked down all.

“Every member of the Milwaukee Brewers organization, from ownership and staff to the players, is extraordinarily grateful for the tremendous fan support we receive,” said Rick Schlesinger, Brewers Executive Vice President – Business Operations. “In return, we want to continue providing one of the most affordable experiences in Major League Baseball. One of Mark Attanasio’s original pledges when he purchased the team was to deliver the best fan experience possible, and this is another step toward delivering on that promise.”

In 2010, the Brewers were ranked by Team Marketing Report's annual survey as the eighth most-affordable fan experience in all of Major League Baseball (see a complete breakdown of TMR’s 2010 Fan Cost Index).

For 2010 and 2011, the Brewers average ticket price is $22.10.  That average is over four dollars less than the average for all 30 MLB teams in 2010 ($26.74).

Individual game tickets on the Field Level will range from $50 - $20 while Loge Level tickets will range from $46 - $20.  Club Level seats will remain at $40 for seats with wait staff and $36 for seats without.  Terrace Level seats will range in price from $21 - $8.  The always popular $1 Uecker seats (day of game purchase only) will return in 2011 as well.

According to the Brewers, they will continue to offer savings and incentives for existing Season Seat Holders who renew their plans prior to November 19, 2010.  In addition, as part of their plan, all Season Seat Holders will receive tickets to Marquee games at Season Seat Holder prices.

Playoff Race Pushes Giants' Dynamic Ticket Prices Higher PDF Print E-mail

Supply and demand. The twin forces that drive the study of Economics. And they are ideally illustrated this weekend in San Francisco. The Giants have a finite number of tickets available. And nothing stokes demand like a heated playoff chase that comes right down to the final weekend of the season. The Giants hold the slim advantage of a two-game lead. With both teams in action today, that buffer may shrink even more prior to the season's final act -  a three game set in San Francisco between the rivals. The drama has provided the club with the chance to put their dynamic ticket pricing system into full-effect.

Rob Gloster of Bloomberg News highlights the process that allows the team to increase the price as much as four times what some seats cost at the start of the season. As reported earlier this week by Pete Toms the Giants "have been the most aggressive practitioner of dynamic/variable pricing in MLB." That aggressiveness has been rewarded with enhanced revenue for this weekend's games

A ticket in the Field Club behind home plate for that game started the season at $68. It cost $92 on Aug. 1, $121 a week later, $145 on Sept. 4 and $175 now.

According to Russ Stanley, director of ticket sales for the Giants, that revenue advantage has been nearly 10 percent per seat over the course of the season. That increase is fueled in part by the greater demand the Giants pennant push has prompted. But also aiding the effort are the price floors that protect season ticket holders from any potential price deflation.

Spurring the trend towards dynamic ticket pricing is the success of transaction facilitators in the secondary market, like StubHub, where supply and demand reign supreme. The difference between contention and playing out the string could be no more stark than it is there. Recently eliminated Colorado plays recently eliminated St. Louis in a four game set this weekend. Seats for the series opener start at less than a dollar for tonight, climbing up as high as four dollars for Sunday's season finale. The price will drop as Sunday gets closer and the demand slacks off. The Giants are counting on increased demand to keep prices maxed all weekend, even if it means the race goes right down to the wire, because after all, more drama means more demand.

Tampa Bay Rays to Give Away 20,000 Free Tickets to Weds. Night Game PDF Print E-mail

RaysOn Monday, being in a position to clinch a playoff berth at Tropicana Field against the Orioles, more David Price and Evan Longoria looked at the stands and found them mostly empty. Price posted on Twitter, “Had a chance to clinch a post season spot tonight with about 10,000 fans in the stands....embarrassing.”

Actually, it was 12,446, but as I noted… bad.

The Rays wound up clinching a playoff spot tonight, guaranteed to either win the AL East or the AL Wild Card, and at least a few more showed up for the event: 17,891, the second lowest attended game of the night behind only the 16,982 that showed for the Red Sox-White Sox game in Chicago.

But, on Weds., the house is expected to be packed. Not because of some newfound energy from the fan base, but rather because 20,000 will be made available by the Rays for the regular season finale at the Trop against the Baltimore Orioles for… free. That’s right nada.

According to the Rays, tickets will be distributed one per person on a first-come, first-served basis and will be given away upon entry to the ballpark. Tickets may not be picked up in advance. The complimentary tickets will be available in the Press Level, Baseline Box, Loge Box, Outfield, Upper Box and Upper Reserved sections.

Fans who have purchased tickets to Weds. night's game in the aforementioned seating areas may exchange them at Guest Services for a Lower Box seat upon their arrival, based on availability.

So, please… We know there are some of the best fans in all of baseball supporting the Rays, but let’s hope they can bring their friends… and their friend’s friends… and they learn that it’s worth getting out from in front of the television to watch the Rays live. Let’s hope the Rays don’t have to give away tickets to the playoffs.

Washington NationalsThe Washington Nationals yesterday announced season ticket prices for the 2011 season at Nationals Park. According to the club, in an effort to continue to offer affordable entertainment, the team will lower or maintain the same price structure from 2010 for all regular season tickets while decreasing the cost of tickets in the premium seating areas. The Nationals have also added value to seats in the Home Plate Box section, the PNC Diamond Club and the Lexus Presidents Club by making all three areas all-inclusive with complimentary food, beer, wine and soda.

“These new enhancements make the best seats at Nationals Park an even better value at a lower cost,” Nationals Chief Operating Officer Andrew Feffer said. “We’ve also lowered or frozen prices for all regular season tickets to ensure that a day at the ballpark continues to be a reasonably priced, enjoyable experience for all of our fans.”

In addition, the new “Buy 2 Get 2” season ticket offer is still available for 2011, giving Nationals fans who place a deposit on two new 2011 season tickets in select seating areas two additional 2011 season tickets free. The “Buy 2 Get 2” offer is limited to select seating categories, but fans can also place a deposit on new 2011 season tickets in any section of the ballpark. As a bonus, fans will “Finish in Style” by receiving free tickets to all remaining home games this season.
