NEW YORK ( MainStreet) -- Baseball's interleague play is back, and so are the high-priced seats for regional rivalries.Major League Baseball's American League and National League teams are facing off for the 15th consecutive season, which is just about as long as fans have been arguing over the merits of interleague matchups. Interleague supporters love the local and regional rivalries, World Series rematches, pairings of historic franchises and visits by players they wouldn't see during their league's regular schedule.
|The Yankees and Mets faced off in May 2011 and do so again today -- at ticket prices of $39 to $561.|
June 12 at Great American Ballpark
Ticket prices: $8 to $128
The Battle of Ohio or Ohio Cup usually means a lot more within the Buckeye state than it does outside it, but this year is just a bit different. The Reds have muscled their way to the top of the National League Central, while the Indians briefly took the AL Central's top spot before finding themselves in a dogfight with the Chicago White Sox. The Indians have a 39-36 edge in the series, but each team's race for the top could make this series spicier than a bowl of Skyline Chili. That said, the price of a ticket for this matchup is among the lowest on our list.
