Eight teams put spring-training tickets on sale tomorrow

Eight teams — Atlanta Braves, Boston Red Sox, Detroit Tigers, Kansas City Royals, Minnesota Twins, San Diego Padres, Seattle Mariners and Texas Rangers — are placing spring-training tickets on sale tomorrow morning. Now, given the changes in the market and the increasing reliance on season tickets in spring training, the announcement may not mean as much as it did five years ago, when we launched

Here’s why. Because so many tickets are tied up in season tickets, what’s actually available when tickets go on sale isn’t of the best quality. And many teams, even when putting single-game tickets on sale, keep behind many attractive tickets.

For instance: the New York Yankees put single-game tickets on sale this past week. Only one game, against the Boston Red Sox, is a “sellout.” However, the game isn’t really sold out in terms of every ducat being sold: the Yankees are still selling season tickets for some very attractive seat locations (like behind home plate in the second level, in the shaded part of the grandstand), and that game is part of the many season-ticket packages still on sale. If these seats do not sell to season-ticket holders, they’ll be put on sale down the road. So treat ticket availability with a grain of salt. We always encourage you to go to teams first for your ticket needs, but remember that a good number of after-market vendors, like Ballpark Digest Tickets, offer plenty of variety when it comes to spring-training tickets.
