How Much Are Grapefruit League Tickets

page-2-119

Florida’s Grapefruit League is set for its first pitch in a just a few days, and when it is thrown, two teams will command more than $100 for spring training games. The New York Yankees $120 is the highest across Major League Baseball, and the Philadelphia Phillies $101 is the second highest. It’s likely no surprise that demand for both teams is so high as Florida is a common winter destination for East Coasters. The Grapefruit League is comprised of 15 teams from both the American and National Leagues that play at ballparks around Florida.

Team Average Price
New York Yankees $120
Philadelphia Phillies $101
Boston Red Sox $75
New York Mets $57

Baltimore Orioles $47

Toronto Blue Jays $46
