Indians to Face Twins in Opening Series at Progressive Field

February 27, 2014

The Cleveland Indians are riding high in the American League Central. They made the playoffs for the first time in years last season, but were unfortunately ousted by the Tampa Bay Rays in the Wild Card round. With the additions of Daniel Murphy and others, the Indians are poised to make a run at a World Series title.  If you’re looking to see the team play, here’s an update on Indians tickets for their opening series against the Minnesota Twins.

The first home game is against their division rivals the Minnesota Twins. The average ticket price for this game is right around $219 while the cheapest ticket that you can get is going to cost you $49.  That’s in the bottom half of the league in terms of most expensive home openers, so certainly an opportunity to see an opening day game at a reasonable price.

However, for the second game, tickets are much cheaper. The average ticket price for this game is right around $57 while the cheapest ticket you can get is $16. For the final game of this three game set, the average ticket price is $47 while the get in price is only $12.  So, it would cost you only $28 to see the Indians in games two and three, but cost you at least $49 to see the opener.  So fans looking to head to the ballpark but save a buck or two should opt for the second and third game of this opening series.

The Indians had a much quieter offseason compared to last, when they added the likes of Nick Swisher and Michael Bourn, but fans are cautiously optimistic that they can return to the playoffs and some of their younger arms, such as Danny Salazar and Corey Kluber, can continue to develop.  And with Terry Francona at the helm, the Cleveland Indians are in a much improved position compared to just a few years past.
