An American League East division rivalry will spring anew when the Baltimore Orioles and Boston Red Sox square off this season. Baltimore is the reigning American League East champion, but Boston, even after finishing in fifth place last season, is poised to climb back atop the standings. Baltimore and Boston have won the last two American League East division titles, so tensions will run high between these two successful teams. Therefore, these two teams boast high ticket prices on the secondary ticket market.
There will be 19 games played between Baltimore and Boston during the 2015 season. With nine games scheduled at Camden Yards, the average ticket price for Red Sox vs. Orioles tickets is $89.13, which is 19% higher than Baltimore’s overall average home ticket price of $74.78. With 10 games scheduled at Fenway Park, the average Red Sox vs. Orioles ticket price will be $120.27 which is exactly equal to the Red Sox overall average home ticket price of $120.27.
The highest-priced game between these two teams will occur at Camden Yards on September 15th. That game currently owns an average ticket price of $159.01 while the get-in price is $19. The second highest-priced game will be held at Fenway Park on September 25th. That game currently owns an average ticket price of $134.48 while the get-in price is $22.
After winning 96 games last season, expectations are high for the Baltimore Orioles. After winning the World Series in 2013, Boston struggled last season and only won 71 games. Boston overhauled its roster by adding new (and old) faces to its roster in hopes of bouncing back with a strong 2015 campaign. Both fan bases are hoping that their teams can turn in winning campaigns during the 2015 season as both teams vie for a World Series title.
