Sox spring training ticket prices are second-highest in MLB

Courtesy of the Boston Business Journal:

The Boston Red Sox are scheduled to open the spring training season on Friday afternoon against the New York Mets in Fort Myers, Florida. If you’re looking for tickets on the secondary market, prepare to pay dearly.

The Sox have the second-highest ticket prices in Major League Baseball for preseason games, according to secondary ticket reseller TickPick LLC.

With an average price of $80.24, Sox tickets this spring trail only the world champion Chicago Cubs ticket prices, which lead all Major League teams at $106.30 per seat on the secondary market.

Face-value tickets for spring training games at JetBlue Park at Fenway South go for between $15 and $33, according to the Red Sox website.

The $80.24 average price of Red Sox tickets on the secondary ticket market this spring are $3 higher than last year, but $7.57 cheaper than fans paid in 2015, according to New York-based TickPick.

The Sox are scheduled to play an exhibition game today against Northeastern University. The regular season opens on April 3 at Fenway Park against the Pittsburgh Pirates.
