The San Francisco Giants are looking to rebound from their disappointing season last year and recapture the championship magic that they had in both 2010 and 2012. The main players from both those series wins are still hanging around for the most part, though staff ace Tim Lincecum has struggled over the past few years. Madison Bumgarner and Matt Cain have taken the mantle of best pitchers in the rotation. In the lineup, they still have the talented Pablo Sandoval, Hunter Pence, and all-world catcher Buster Posey to try and lead them to the postseason. If you’re looking to check out the Giants as they set out for the 2014 season, here’s a ticket breakdown of their opening series.
The Giants kick off the home part of their schedule against their division rivals, the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Diamondbacks are looking to take the western division crown from both the Giants and Dodgers and have beefed up their lineup with the acquisition of Mark Trumbo. Alongside Paul Goldschmitt, the Dbacks look primed to compete for the top spot in the NL West.
For the opener, the average ticket price for this game is currently $157, while the get in price is a much more modest $51, according to Vividseats.com. Opening Day tickets are always a little more expensive, but they are particularly pricier for the Giants. For the second game of this three game set, the average ticket price is only $70, almost $90 cheaper than the opener, while the get in price for this game is only $14, a drop of $37.
For the next and final game of this three game set, the average ticket price is only $59 with a get in price of a paltry $4. That’s less than it will cost for a ballpark frank. For those fans looking to catch the Giants early in the season and save a buck in the process, the final game of the series opener is certainly the game to choose.
