10 Most Expensive Tickets In Major League Baseball in 2014
10. Detroit Tigers
Average ticket price: $28.22
Change from 2013: 7.1%
How do you get away with hiking prices in Detroit? Simple: Make the ALCS three years straight and in four of the past eight years and go to the World Series twice during that span. Granted, the Tigers have only won one World Series game in that time, but this is a fan base that saw its team lose 119 games as recently as last year, which followed a 106-loss season the year before. Having a pitching rotation stuffed with aces such as Justin Verlander, Max Scherzer and Anibal Sanchez and employing arguably the best hitter in the league and reigning American League Most Valuable Player in Miguel Cabrera goes a long way in justifying a price hike. After all, a payroll nearing $150 million doesn't pay for itself.
