Whether heading out to the ballpark for one of the top MLB games this week, taking in a round at the U.S. Open or traveling to Broadway to catch a Tony-Award winning performance, this weekend is sure to please him in ways mom hasn’t since the honeymoon.
If planning on taking pops to get some peanuts and cracker jacks on Sunday, Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City will welcome an A.L. matchup between the Royals and Red Sox. According to TicketIQ, the average price for June 21 Royals vs Red Sox tickets is currently $100.26 and the get-in price starts at $23 on the secondary market.
