As Second Half of MLB Season Begins, Giants Seeing Biggest Resale Ticket Price Increase, Mets Worst PDF Print E-mail

Ticket & Attendance Watch

Thursday, 14 July 2011 08:03

As the second half of the 2011 Major League Baseball season kicks off today, the reigning World Champion San Francisco Giants see, understandably, the greatest ticket price increase on the resale market, compared to the same point last season. On the secondary market, the Giants have an average ticket price of $63.78, or a 45 percent increase from last year’s price of $44.00, according to ticket research and resale company, TiqIQ.

Overall, the average ticket price heading into the second half of the season is down almost 9 percent from 2010.

At the other end of the spectrum, the New York Mets, besieged by the Madoff scandal see the largest drop. Tickets last year going into the second half were running at $107.86 on the resale market, compared to $52.26 this year, a decline of 51.55 percent.

In terms of overall price, while the club sees a slight decrease from last year (just over 1 percent), the Red Sox still lead the way with the average resale price of $124.41 heading into the second half of the season. You have to go all the way back to the Blue Jays ($91.58) to get to the second highest. The Yankees ($81.97), Phillies ($73.01), and D-Backs ($71.09) round out the top 5.

In terms of bang for your buck, the Royals at just $31.00 on the resale market are the lowest priced team, But the real bargain is the second lowest priced team, the NL Central leading Brewers who have an average resale price of just $34.00. They’re followed by the surprising Pirates ($39.00), Angels ($41.00), and Cardinals ($42.00).

Oh, and for those watching the saga with the Dodgers and Frank McCourt, secondary prices have dropped 25.22 percent ($43.00 from $57.50 last season) heading into the second half.

Select READ MORE to see resale prices for all 30 clubs, by increase/decrease from last season heading into the second half of the season.

Futures

The MLB Futures game that saw the US beat the World in a late game rally, 6-4 followed by the Celebrity Softball Game drew 37,012 in attendance, or 79 percent of Chase Field’s capacity for the event.

While Chase Field normally has a seating capacity of 48,652 (see the 30 ballparks by seating capacity), with media overflow taking a large section of the left centerfield seating, comps (both players and umps), VIPs, and the Commissioner’s Office, the capacity comes down considerably (it should be noted, the for the HR Derby, an additional 500 seats are added to capacity).

Maury Brown will be reporting till Weds from the All-Star Game festivities

Ticket Prices Skyrocket as Derek Jeter Approaches 3,000 Hits PDF Print E-mail

Derek Jeter went 2 for 6 as part of a 6-2 whipping of the Cleveland Indians on Tuesday night, putting him just four hits shy of 3,000 hits.

As Jeter gets closer to finally achieving the landmark figure (just 27 have done so prior, with Rapheal Palmerio being the last to do so in 2005), ticket prices on the resale market have skyrocketed.

According TiqIQ.com, as the Yankees begin their four game series against the Rays on Thursday in the Bronx the numbers are climbing dramatically, as fans look to be there when history takes place. Below is the price change (avg ticket price) for the 4 games in the series:

July 7th

  • June 29th-$103
  • July 5th- $144
  • Get in Price-$51
  • % change-39.8%

July 8th

  • June 29th-$96
  • July 5th- $153
  • Get in Price-$49
  • % change- 59.4%

July 9th

  • June 29th-$117
  • July 5th-$188
  • Get in Price-$34
  • % change- 60.7%

July 10th

  • June 29th-$112
  • July 5th-$170
  • Get in Price-$27
  • % change-51.8%

As the data shows, most fans before Jeter ripped two more hits, are thinking that Jeter’s date with 3,000 would come on Sat. the 10th. As mentioned, that was before those two hits. We’re betting prices for the 8th are going to go up tomorrow.

2011 MLB Interleague Draws Over 8.5 Million Fans, Up Slightly From Last Year PDF Print E-mail

Final Interleague NumbersOn Sunday, Interleague play in Major League Baseball concluded, and with it, attendance numbers are in. All told, 8,468,620 in paid attendance over 252 games took place with the two sets of interleague play, one of which in mid-May, and the other running in July. Based upon average attendance, 2011 saw 33,606 per ballpark compared to an average of 33,511 for interleague last season, or an increase of 0.28 percent.

The 2011 Interleague average is 18.2 percent higher than this season’s current intraleague average of 28,421 per game. But, those figures account for all season, including the abysmally wet spring weather that saw the most rainouts over the last decade. When looking at the month prior leading up to interleague, the average was 29,099, or interleague at 13.17 percent ahead of what the league was pacing just prior.

By comparison, the National League intraleague games that were interspersed throughout Interleague play drew an average 33,126, up 12 percent for intraleague games during interleague last season when the average was 29,662.

In terms of packing the house, there were a total of 58 sellouts across interleague.

One of the biggest benefactors of interleague was the New York Mets. The Mets, who struggled at the gate early on in the season, saw two consecutive record days at Citi Field on Friday (42,020) and Saturday (42,042). Prior to Friday’s game, the highest attended game in Citi Field history was 41,422 on May 23, 2010, and yes, it was when the Mets were hosting the Yankees in the first series of interleague games last season. All told, the Mets drew 366,718 over 10 games for interleague this year. Of that total, approx. a third of that can be attributed to the three games where they hosted the Yankees (125,575 in paid attendance)

And consider this: The Marlins had to bump a “home” series to Seattle due to U2 playing a concert at Sun Life Stadium. Those game, which the Mariners did not have season ticket numbers count against, drew just 15,279, 16,896, and 10,925 at Safeco Field. While attendance has (yet again) been low in Florida, it’s most likely that these numbers would have been up somewhat (the May interleague series in Florida against the Rays drew 18,111, 21,814, and 15,432 respectfully).

One of the biggest draws to interleague is the “natural rivalry” sets that occur each year. And while the “Vedder Cup” – the Padres v Mariners (named after Pearl Jam singer Eddie Vedder who hails from San Diego, but plays in Seattle with the band) is hard to called a “natural rivalry”, the numbers show that while that series doesn’t exactly resonate with fans year in and year out, it could be worse.

The “Battle of Florida” series is the worst of the regional rivalry games most years, and this season was no different drawing an average of just 19,720 per game. By comparison, the “Subway Series” drew almost two-and-a-half times as many fans on average (45,005).

Here is the breakdown of the rivalries series for Interleague 2011:

Matchup

Avg Attendance

Mets v Yankees

45,005

Angels v Dodgers

42,312

Giants v A's

39,144

Cubs v W. Sox

38,754

Rays v Marlins

  • The Philadelphia Phillies series against the Oakland Athletics was the highest attended three-game series in Citizens Bank Park history (137,333). It contained the second (45,863), fourth (45,785) and 14th (45,685) largest regular season crowds in park history
  • The Kansas City Royals drew 100,066 for their three-game series vs. the Chicago Cubs, which was the highest total at Kauffman Stadium in 2011. It was their most-attended three-game series since June 25-27, 2010 vs. St. Louis (110,311).
  • The Texas Rangers drew 46,092 fans against the New York Mets on Friday night. It was their 13th crowd of over 45,000 this year. Last season, the Rangers had a total of 15 such games for the entire season.

The Florida Marlins lyric line for Friday night had to have been, “I still haven’t found what I’m looking for…”

The Marlins are still 10 months away from playing in their new retractable-roof stadium, and with it, held hostage by what ownership of Sun Life Stadium wishes. So, when U2’s 360 Tour trumped the Marlins, MLB moved the “home” series of the Marlins to Seattle to continue interleague.

The argument has been that the Marlins will draw in a new ballpark. Yes, it’s Seattle. Yes, Safeco Field is now over decade old. But, in a case of being a plague on attendance no matter where they go, the Marlins game in Seattle drew just 15,279, or 32 percent of Safeco Field’s capacity. That was over 8,500 less than the second lowest attended game of the day in Chicago where the White Sox hosted the Nationals.

Still, by capacity, Friday was one of the best of the season, ranking third. The average over 15 games was exactly 36,000 and increase of 3 percent over the same day last season in interleague, when the league averaged 35,020. In terms of sellouts, there were four, with the Pirates seeing their fourth of the season.

Here’s Friday’s interleague (and one intraleague between the Braves and Padres), plus promotions:

Strange, but true. The Seattle Mariners have been in contention in the AL West for a few weeks now. Bolstered by a solid starting rotation and bullpen, the losing woes could be gone for the season.

 

But, winning doesn’t always get fans to come through the gates as fast as the rise in the standings. So, is it cool to go to Mariners games again? Maybe.

Looking at the graphic below, attendance has picked up since the very beginning of the season. Whether that is a byproduct of the nasty weather (even though Safeco Field has a retractable roof) or that school is now out, could certainly be factors.

As to the big spike at the end, thank the Philadelphia Phillies and interleague. The Mariners drew 115,636 fans over the 3 game set, including a sellout of 45,462 fans for Sunday’s Father’s Day series finale. It was the largest three-game series since May 15-17, 2009 against Boston (118,380).

Interleague Pushes MLB to Largest Attendance Weekend Since 2008 PDF Print E-mail

Ticket & Attendance Watch
Written by Maury Brown

Major League Baseball drew 1,646,000 fans for this weekend’s 45 games, the largest attendance weekend for 45 games since the final weekend of the 2008 season when 1,683,763 fans attended games from September 26th-28th. Overall, it was the largest attended weekend since July 21-24, 2009 when 1,684,095 fans attended 46 games.

In addition, yesterday’s games drew 572,446 for 15 games, the largest attendance day since 577,583 fans attended games on August 14, 2010. There were only two other dates in 2010 that drew more than yesterday’s games: July 17th (582,906 for 16 games) and July 3rd (573,215).

Compared to the same three days of second interleague play last season, 2010 drew 1,543,334 over 45 games.

Attendance highlights over the three days among the Clubs included:

  • The Chicago Cubs welcomed 126,283 fans to Wrigley Field during their three-game set against the New York Yankees. The weekend’s attendance broke the previous Wrigley Field three-game series record of 124,810 vs. Milwaukee on June 29-July 1, 2007. Also, Saturday’s 42,236 was the largest Wrigley attendance since the 1978 home opener.
  • The Cleveland Indians drew 30,023 fans to Progressive Field on Sunday and totaled 100,437 for their three-game series against the Pittsburgh Pirates. It marked the first time Cleveland has drawn over 100,000 for a three-game series since September 19-21, 2008 vs. Detroit.
  • The Boston Red Sox sold out all three games this past weekend against the Milwaukee Brewers and drew 38,175 fans on Saturday, their largest paid attendance of the season. They have now sold out 666 straight games at Fenway Park.
  • The Colorado Rockies sold out both Saturday and Sunday against the Detroit Tigers, marking the second and third sellouts of 2011 following Opening Day.
  • The Seattle Mariners drew 115,636 fans, including a sellout of 45,462 fans for Sunday’s Father’s Day series finale. It was the largest three-game series since May 15-17, 2009 against Boston (118,380).
  • The Oakland Athletics sold out each of their three games against the San Francisco Giants, marking the first time they have sold out each game of a three-game series since May 18-20, 2007 against the Giants.

“Fans coming out in these remarkable numbers demonstrate the popularity of Interleague Play, especially given that many of our intra-city rivalries did not occur this weekend,” said Commissioner Selig. “I remain optimistic that our attendance numbers will continue to climb with summer beginning tomorrow and five of the six Divisions separated by 1.5 games or less.”

While the league saw incredible numbers (see FridaySaturdaySunday), not every series could be deemed “a winner”. The Rays hosting the Marlins in the “Battle of Florida” drew just 62,964 over 3 games or an average of 20,988.

To date, overall league attendance is down less than 1 percent from last season (-0.83%) averaging 28,838 per game compared to 29,077 at the same point last season.
