Secondary market Twins opener tickets among cheapest in baseball

Author:

In just a few days the Minnesota Twins will return to Target Field for another summer in the sun. The Twins will play the Chicago White Sox in their home opener on Monday.

While there are still a limited number of tickets available through the Twins ticket office, the easier way to get ahold of certain select seats might be through the secondary market.

The good news for fans still wanting to get to Monday's home opener: Minnesota's tickets appear to be some of the most reasonably priced secondary market opener tickets in all of baseball.

According to the website Vivid Seats, the median price for a ticket to Monday's game against the White Sox is $77 – giving them the fifth-cheapest secondary market ticket in all of baseball.

The Business Journal notes it's an $11 increase over the median price on the secondary market for opening day at Target Field last year.

By comparison here are how some other cities stacked up.

Opening Day median ticket prices top 5

  • Kansas City – $252.00
  • New York Mets – $229.00
  • Texas – $225.00
  • San Francisco – $200.00
  • Boston – $191.00

Opening Day median ticket prices bottom 5

  • Minnesota – $77
  • Philadelphia – $73
  • Arizona – $67
  • Milwaukee – $60
  • Oakland – $60

Baseball tickets remain pretty affordable at Target Field for the 80 remaining games this season. Vivid Seats notes the median price for the rest of the games is $51 on the secondary market, which is tied for 19th in Major League Baseball.

Although for those other 80 games there are good tickets available directly through the Twins.
