Ticket Prices For MLB All-Star Events Down As Much As 59% From '10
Published February 28, 2011
The '11 Home Run Derby ticket price spread of $60-325 shows a similar dynamic compared to the '10 range of $145-330. All-Star Sunday, which includes the annual Futures Game and a celebrity softball game, is priced this year at $35-80. Industry sources said the battered local economy in and around Phoenix played a significant role in MLB's pricing decisions. The ticket pricing for this year's All-Star events also is very similar to the spread used two years ago in St. Louis, where tickets for the ASG were $100-360, $75-335 for the Home Derby, and $25-175 for All-Star Sunday.
