The 2017 MLB season will officially commence on Sunday, with all 30 teams wiping the slate clean and beginning their quest to a hopeful playoff berth. There's been no shortage of storylines around the league this offseason, from the White Sox sending Chris Sale to Boston to Edwin Encarnacion finding a long-term home in Cleveland.
Hope springs eternal as the calendar turns to April, and the long march to a World Series title starts with Opening Day. Below, TicketIQ breaks down where each team ranks on the resale market for Opening Day tickets. Fair warning, Cubs fans: you'll be paying top dollar to invade Wrigley Field on April 10.
The defending World Series champion Cubbies own the priciest Opening Day tickets this season. As it stands now Cubs Opening Day tickets are averaging $308 and the cheapest are listed from $85 each. The Braves, who set to open their new stadium SunTrust Park, follow closely behind. The Cardinals also appear in the top tier when they host the rival Cubs at Busch Stadium on Sunday.
On the other side of the spectrum sit the Twins, Pirates and Athletics, who own the cheapest Opening Day tickets in 2017. All three teams own an average resale ticket price below $90. Consider this: three teams are posting a get-in price higher than $90 on Opening Day. Those teams are the Braves ($99), Rockies ($93), and Giants ($90).
