MLB Ticket Refund Policy Update

Earlier this week, USA Today reported that Major League Baseball has changed its ticket policy and will allow teams to determine their own policies for games postponed by the COVID-19 pandemic, which would allow ticket-holders to receive refunds. Nearly every team has released their updated policies, and you can find a link to your favorite team's update below.  

Teams are offering a variety of option for fans, including credits, exchanges, and almost all of them are now offering full refunds. Most teams are offering refunds for games scheduled through May. A full list can be seen below:

Prior to this, the MLB had told teams to treat lost games as postponements, and that those ticket buyers could use the tickets for a makeup date or another game.

It was also reported that MLB officials are optimistic that the 2020 season will happen, and most likely begin in late June or early July.  

MLB is considering a three-division, 10-team plan in which teams play only within their division – a concept gaining support among owners and executives. It would abolish the traditional American and National Leagues, and realign the divisions based on geography.

The plan, pending approval of medical experts and providing that COVID-19 testing is available to the public, would eliminate the need for players to be in isolation and allow them to still play at their home ballparks while severely reducing travel.

The article also stated that the games would most likely be played without fans in attendance.

Secondary Market Impact

With a month of the season already wiped away, we estimate the lost revenue for secondary market MLB tickets is just under $1 billion. That estimate is based on secondary market value, average attendance from the 2019 season, and the number of games canceled. This is not a precise measure, but the simplest way to benchmark the magnitude of losses, by team. Below is a breakdown:

Which MLB Stadiums and Cities Have Highest and Lowest Coronavirus Risk?

We’ve analyzed Covid-19 case data along with RT values, which measure the rate of virus transmission, for all 50 states. Based on this data, we’ve created a Safety Index which measures the risk fans take when buying tickets for MLB games in their cities. The Safety Index is not meant as a recommendation to attend events in any market, but just one interpretation of publicly-available data. We’ve broken down our Safety Index into 3 categories. Teams highlighted in Green are the safest. A Yellow rating is low-medium risk. Orange or Red ratings are the riskiest.  We'll be updating every two weeks to track progress by state.

Coronavirus Impact On The MLB Ticket Market

With nearly half of the season already wiped away, we estimate the lost revenue for secondary market MLB tickets is just over $5 billion. That estimate is based on secondary market value, average attendance from the 2019 season, and the number of games canceled. This is not a precise measure, but the simplest way to benchmark the magnitude of losses, by team. Below is a breakdown:

page-9

The secondary market ticket value for the upcoming shortened 60-game season is just under $1.9 billion. That number grows to over $2 billion with the playoffs included.

Where To Buy 2020 MLB Tickets

On the primary market, tickets are available via Ticketmaster or the team's websites. Several teams single-game tickets have already gone on sale, while others will go on sale throughout Spring Training.

How Much Are 2020 MLB Tickets

With the Major League Baseball team a little more than a month away, teams are seeing just about what you’d expect — many that had a great 2019 season are seeing an uptick in the average asking price for tickets in 2020. But baseball’s history is one of commitment by fans, and that often translates into high ticket prices for the teams with the most devoted following — whether they’re winning or losing. That culture is most on display in Boston, where the Red Sox are currently under investigation for a cheating scandal and finished third in the American League East a year after winning it all, but still have the highest average asking price across baseball on the secondary market.

The $167 average is up 7.2% from 2019 and is more than $20 higher than the average for the next priciest team — the division rival New York Yankees, who are commanding an average of $145 for a ticket to Yankee Stadium. The Yankees won the East in 2019 but lost to the Houston Astros in the American League Championship Series. That average is up 8.3% over 2019. The third priciest average is for the Los Angeles Dodgers, winners of the NL West in 2019. At $108, the average asking price for a Dodgers home game is down 22.2%, proving that fans are tiring of the Dodgers' inability to make the promise of a World Series a reality.

Most Expensive MLB Teams In 2020

page-1-111

As noted above, the three priciest averages belong to Boston, New York, and Los Angeles, and they are three of only five teams with an average asking price of $100 or more. Despite Boston’s ugly season and the threat of results from MLB’s cheating investigation, Fenway Park is the smallest ballpark in baseball, and the Red Sox are part of the fabric of New England. Season tickets have long been sold out at the oldest park still in use, so it’s no surprise that win or lose, Boston finds itself on the top of the price heap.

The Nationals, with their big jump, check-in at No. 4 in terms of the average asking price, while the St. Louis Cardinals, who got to the NLCS before losing to the Nationals, are No. 5. Fans will pay an average of $101 at Busch Stadium, down 3% from 2019.

Next five: Chicago Cubs ($93); Cleveland Indians ($92); Chicago White Sox ($92); Philadelphia Phillies ($75); Minnesota Twins ($73), Houston Astros ($73) and Oakland Athletics ($73). 

Least Expensive MLB Teams In 2020

page-1-112

The cheapest MLB tickets this season will cost fans an average of $52 in Baltimore and New York. Baltimore’s average dropped from 1.9% to $52 after it finished last in the AL East in 2019. The Detroit Tigers have the second cheapest ticket after seeing their average drop 22.6% to $53 while both Cincinnati (12.7%) and Tampa Bay (25%) had fairly significant increases, but still remain cheap, at $55 and $56, respectively. The Miami Marlins round out the bottom 5.

Next Five: Atlanta Braves ($58), Pittsburgh Pirates ($58), San Diego Padres ($58); San Francisco Giants ($62); Los Angeles Angels ($63).

Year Over Year MLB Ticket Price Changes

The biggest movers in terms of average increase during the off-season are the Washington Nationals, who won the first World Series in franchise history last year. The average price for a Nationals ticket jumped 30.4% from $71 to $102. The only other team that had a jump of 25% or more is the Minnesota Twins, who won 101 games and the AL Central, before losing to the Yankees in the ALCS. The average asking price for a ticket is up 27.4% from $53 to $73. 

On the downside, the luster of the Cubs 2016 World Series win, which broke a 108-year Series drought, has definitely worn off. Since then, the Cubs got to the NLCS (2017) and the Wild-Card Round (2018), but failed to make the playoffs in 2019, and the average dropped a whopping 51.6% — the biggest move in either direction across the league — from $141 to $93. The next biggest drop is 35.1% for the Atlanta Braves, from $77 to $57 after they won the NL East for the second consecutive season, but got bounced out of the playoffs in the Division Series. 

page-2-115

Biggest 2020 MLB Ticket Price Gainers 

Big gains don’t always translate into the priciest tickets, though it worked out that way for the Nationals, whose 30.4% upswing in prices makes them the fourth most expensive on the secondary market entering 2020. The Nats have one of the best infields in MLB, and though Anthony Rendon left for the Los Angeles Angels, the Nats added Eric Thames and Starlin Castro, so the infield should remain an asset. The second-biggest gainer is the New York Mets, who have been edging closer and closer to a playoff spot over the last two seasons, but it’s likely that the return of Yoenis Cespedes, who missed 2019, is the real reason behind the 30.4% spike in average asking prices.

The Twins, who had the next biggest price gain, 27.4%, aren’t even in the Top 10 in terms of average asking price — they rank No. 12. And Tampa Bay’s 25% gain is hefty, but they’re still the fifth-cheapest team to see play at home this season. That said, the Rays are always a contender in baseball’s most competitive division and should continue that trend following a 96-win season and their first playoff appearance since 2016 last year.

Across the country in Los Angeles, the Angels are enjoying a 14.3% increase in average asking price, largely because they hired Joe Maddon as skipper and added big bat Anthony Rendon, who won a World Series with Washington last year. Of course, Mike Trout is always a draw.

Just missing the Top 5: Colorado (13.8%); Texas (13.2%); Cincinnati (12.7%); San Diego (10.3%); Miami (8.8%).

Biggest 2020 MLB Ticket Price Decliners 

A messy roster and front office contributed to the decline in the average asking price for a Chicago Cubs ticket. The team’s average slipped 51.6% against 2019, the biggest drop in MLB, in large part due to uncertainty on the roster and the firing of Joe Maddon, who brought the Cubs their first World Series win in more than a century in 2016. The Atlanta Braves are another team in flux, with a big number of off-season moves that mean what’s coming this season is unknown. That said, the Braves have been building on success every year for the last few, but their failure to advance past the NLDS last season is likely why the average ticket price dropped 35.1%. The Braves will need to make good on their regular-season successes to get fans back into the ballpark. 

The Seattle Mariners had the third biggest price drop during the off-season, with the average asking price falling 31.3% to $64. There’s not much to get fans to the ballpark in Seattle these days — the M’s haven’t made it to the post-season since 2001 and last year finished 5th in the NL West. Both Detroit (22.6%) and the Dodgers (22.1%) also had significant declines in ticket averages. The Tigers can blame the decline on a recent lack of success — since winning the AL Central for four straight seasons between 2011-14, they haven’t gotten back to the playoffs and were fifth in the division last season. The Dodgers just don’t seem to be able to translate regular-season success to the post-season, and L.A. fans are notoriously fickle.

Based on each team’s average ticket price on the secondary market and season projections, we can determine each team’s value in terms of dollars per win. There are plenty of opportunities to get the most bang for your buck. The number is derived by dividing the projected number of wins into the average asking price on the secondary market.

In terms of “cost per win,” the best deal in the league will be for the Rays at Tropicana Field, where the cost per win is 61 cents. Tickets are cheap, even though the Rays are projected to win more than 90 games. So if you’re in the neighborhood, it’s a great opportunity to see your team on the road. Other teams that based on their win total vs their secondary market average price that will be providing their teams with great deals are the Tampa Bay Rays, Atlanta Braves, Cincinnati Reds, San Diego Padres, and the New York Mets.

At the other end of the spectrum, the priciest teams are also the teams that are the worst value in terms of "team value index." For example, the team with the highest “cost per win” is the Boston Red Sox, meaning fans will pay a premium for a seat at Fenway. The New York Yankees, Washington Nationals and St. Louis Cardinals and Kansas City Royals round out the Top 5 highest team value index. Of the five, Kansas City is really the worst deal of the top five as they're projected to win only 65.5 games, but average asking prices are high.

2019 MLB Ticket Report Below 👇

Halfway through the Major League Baseball season, teams are learning that winning pays … and losing doesn’t. The Tampa Bay Rays, sitting in second place in the American League East and with the fourth-best record in the AL, have had the biggest jump in price from the start of the season — the Colorado Rockies had a 19.6% increase, on secondary ticket marketplace TicketIQ. The Washington Nationals had the second highest, with a 18.3% increase. 

All three teams are having better seasons than projected. Rounding out the teams with the top five increases over the first half are the San Diego Padres with a 15.4% jump, the Minnesota Twins with a 7.5% jump and the Los Angeles Angels with a jump of 7.4%. The Padres were at .500 at the All-Star break for the first time in nine years. 

mlb-price-change-midseason-2018-2019-2

On the downside, the average asking price for the defending World Series champion Boston Red Sox, who are sitting third in the AL East, plummeted. Boston started the season with a $155 average asking price, the highest across MLB, but halfway through, fans are paying an average of $94 on the secondary market. The 39.4% drop is the biggest in baseball. 

That drop translates into a great opportunity for fans to catch a game at the perennially sold-out Fenway Park, one of only two pre-1920s ballparks still in use. 

The Chicago White Sox, who are third in the AL Central but have a losing record, had the second-biggest drop, from an $82 average asking price at the start of the season to $53 by the midway point. The Seattle Mariners with a 28.6% drop, San Francisco Giants with a 28% drop and the Atlanta Braves with a 27.3% drop round out the teams with top five biggest price drops. 

The Los Angeles Dodgers — runners-up in last season’s World Series and owners of the best record in baseball — are bucking the trend. The average asking price for a ticket to see the Dodgers, who had won 60 games through July 12, dropped 15.2% percent from $132 to $112. In the AL, the New York Yankees have the best record and lead the East, but secondary market prices also dropped, from $133 to $121.

Beginning of 2019 season report is below:


Most Expensive 2019 MLB Teams

You’d think winning a World Series would drive up ticket prices, but in the case of the Boston Red Sox, the average asking price on the secondary market is 8% lower than in 2018, according to secondary ticket marketplace TicketIQ.com. But even with the decline, the Red Sox’s $155 average asking price is the highest in Major League Baseball. In October, the Red Sox won their fourth World Series since 2004, when they snapped an 86-year-old drought. The next priciest ticket on the secondary market is $141 for the Chicago Cubs, who snapped their 108-year drought in 2016. And that average is, yep, you guessed it, cheaper than last year. The New York Yankees, Los Angeles Dodgers and St. Louis Cardinals round out the top 5. Three of the teams with the Top 5 priciest tickets had declines in ticket prices from 2018 to 2019.

Just missing the top 5: Cleveland Indians ($88), Philadelphia Phillies ($85) and Seattle Mariners ($84).

Least Expensive 2019 MLB Teams

The cheapest ticket in the Major Leagues is even cheaper than it was last year, according to TicketIQ.com. The average asking price for a Tampa Bay Rays ticket dropped 23% from $52 to $42, making it the cheapest ticket by $2. The next least expensive ticket is $44 for a seat to see the Mets at Citi Field. where tickets fell 62% between 2018 and 2019. Only one other team has an average asking price below $50 – $48 for the a chance to see the Cincinnati Reds. The San Diego Padres (even with Manny Machado) and the Miami Marlins are the other two teams in the bottom 5.

Just missing the bottom 5: Minnesota Twins ($53), Baltimore Orioles ($53), and Los Angeles Angels ($54).

Biggest MLB Ticket Price Gainers In 2019

There’s plenty of hype surrounding the Chicago White Sox--which may die down a bit with Manny Machado off  the board--but up until now it has driven the average asking price for a ticket up more than 33% to $82, good enough to be the eighth priciest ticket in MLB. Chicago fans clearly think that avoiding arbitration with superstar Jose Abreu and adding first baseman Yonder Alonso could be enough to put the White Sox into contention. Demand in Milwaukee for the Brewers, which won the NL Central and got to within a game of the World Series in 2018, is up just over 31% to a $74 average asking price. Rounding out the top five biggest price gainers are St. Louis, up nearly 21% to a $104 average; the Philadelphia Phillies, thanks to their recent acquisition of Bryce Harper, also up just under 21%. and the Colorado Rockies, up nearly 19% to $56. 

Just missing the top 5: Pittsburgh Pirates (+18.4%) , Oakland Athletics (+15.4%) and San Francisco Giants (+13.5%).

Biggest MLB Ticket Price Drops In 2019

A year after a massive increase average asking price, Los Angeles Angels fans are clearly feeling the disappointment of long-time manager Mike Scioscia’s retirement. The average asking price for a ticket to Angels Stadium is down a whopping 77% to $54 from $96. The next biggest dip is less than half that. The Mets have the 29th most expensive ticket after a drop of nearly 62% to $44 while San Diego fans appear to have also thrown in the towel before the start of the season. The average asking price for a seat at Petco Park is $51, down just over 55%. But with the recent signing of superstar Manny Machado, prices could begin to trend up in the coming days and weeks The Cincinnati Reds and Los Angeles Dodgers round out the five biggest price drops, at declines of 33% and 31%, respectively. Dodgers fans are clearly still feeling the sting of a second consecutive World Series defeat.

Based on each team’s average ticket price on the secondary market and season projections, we can determine each team’s value in terms of dollars per win. There are plenty of opportunities to get the most bang for your buck. The number is derived by dividing the projected number of wins into the average asking price on the secondary market.

In terms of “cost per win,” the best deal in the league will be at Tampa, where the cost per win is 50 cents. Tickets are cheap, even though the Rays are projected to win more than 84 games. So if you’re in the neighborhood, it’s a great opportunity to see your team on the road. Other teams that based on their win total vs their secondary market average price that will be providing their teams with great deals are  the New York Mets, Cincinnati Reds, Minnesota Twins, and the Los Angeles Angels. 

At the other end of the spectrum, the priciest teams are also the teams that are the worst value in terms of "team value index." For example, the team with the highest “cost per win” is the Boston Red Sox, meaning fans will pay a premium for a seat at Fenway. The Chicago Cubs, Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Yankees and Seattle Mariners round out the Top 5 highest team value index. Of the five, Seattle is really the worst deal of the top five as they're projected to win only 70.5 games, but average asking prices are high.

2018 MLB All Star Game Tickets Are Second Highest This Decade

A ticket to this week’s Major Legaue Baseball All-Star Game won’t be cheap. According to data from TicketIQ.com, the average asking price on the secondary market for both the Home Run Derby (Monday) and All-Star Game at Washington’s Nationals Park, are the highest of the last five years.

The current average asking price for the ASG is $869 with a get-in price of $315, and the current average asking price for the Home Run Derby is $537, with a get-in price of $185.

The ASG asking price ranks ahead of the 2015 game at Great American Ballpark, which had a previous high asking price of $857. The next three in order were: $747 at Petco Park in 2016, $715 at Target Field in 2014, and $465 last year at Marlins Park. The 2015 game featured Clayton Kershaw, the Cy Young winner in 2013 and 2014, starting on the mound for the National League.

This year’s Home Run Derby, which features hometown favorite slugger Bryce Harper, has the highest average asking price by a mile. The next closest in the last five years was $417 at Minnesota’s Target Field in 2014 when hometown favorite Brian Dozier joined a roster that included such well-known sluggers as Yoenis Cespedes, Jose Bautista, Giancarlo Stanton and Troy Tulowitzki.

The record asking prices are even more remarkable given that, according to TicketIQ.com, there has been a 9.7 percent drop in the Home Run Derby's average price and 6.4 percent drop to the All-Star Game's average asking price over the past week.

Nationals Park will host the All-Star Game for the first time in its history, and the game will be in the nation’s capital for the first time since 1969, when the Washington Senators hosted.

The American League and National League have traditionally been well-matched, as the teams have a series record of 43-43-2, though the AL has won the last five games. The game no longer determines which league will get home-field advantage in the World Series.

 
....ORIGINAL POST BELOW....

Nationals Park will host its first Major League Baseball All-Star Game and the first since 1969 in the city of Washington, D.C. on July 17. And demand reflects the city’s enthusiasm for bringing baseball’s star-studded annual event to the nation’s capital.

According to TicketIQ.com, the average asking price for a ticket to the game at Nationals Park is $872 on the secondary market, making it the second highest average asking price since TicketIQ began tracking data for the event in 2010. The most expensive ticket was $883, for a seat at New York’s Citi Field in 2013. The cost of a ticket to the All-Star game on the secondary market has only broken through the $800 barrier two other times this decade – in 2012 when fans paid an average of $864 at Kansas City’s Kauffman Stadium and in 2015 when fans paid an average of $858 at Cincinnati’s Great American Ballpark.

The cheapest ASG ticket of the decade on the secondary market was $351 in 2011 at Arizona’s Chase Field.

The get-in price of $295 for next month’s game is among the highest since 2010, as well. Fans only paid more in 2015, when the get-in price was $315 at Great America Ballpark.

Fans interested in a chance to see the best in the game launch home runs can buy a separate ticket for the Home Run Derby, which will be July 16. Among the players expected to participate in the Derby this year are New York Yankees’ sluggers Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton as well as Minnesota Twin Miguel Sano.

The current average asking price for a ticket to the Derby is $402, making it the third most expensive of the decade on the secondary market. The priciest Home Run Derby was at Kauffman Stadium, when fans paid an average of $499, to see Prince Fielder win with 12 dingers in the second round to tie Robinson Cano’s record set in 2011.

The only other time Derby tickets broke the $400 barrier this decade was 2014, when the average asking price settled at $418 at Minnesota’s Target Field. When it comes to overall sporting events in Washington DC, this year's All-Star game is the 5th most expensive in DC this decade.
