Fans Getting Good Value on Orioles Tickets During Playoff Push

The Baltimore Orioles have been an exciting team in 2015, having produced 464 runs thanks to a very formidable lineup of heavy hitters. Their pitching, however, has been another thing entirely, and is the main reason why they’re not closer to the New York Yankees for first-place in the AL East.

While just 5.5 games behind the Bronx Bombers, the O’s might have their sights set on claiming one of the two AL Wild Card berths, as they currently share residency with two other clubs in the second slot. As a result, Orioles fans are getting killer value with Orioles tickets averaging out at just $73.76 for the rest of the year, as every game will be meaningful on the way to a hopeful postseason appearance. Most of the value can be seen this very month, with no game costing more than $69 for Baltimore fans. To get a better idea of just how good Orioles fans have it, let’s take a look at the cheapest and priciest Orioles games in August:

Cheapest – 8/11/2015 @ Seattle Mariners at Safeco Field | Avg: $32 | Get-in: $9

Seattle isn’t normally much of a threat, but their bats have actually been ablaze throughout the summer. The Mariners have very slim playoff hopes, but they’ll undoubtedly relish in playing spoiler the rest of the way if they can’t claim one of those Wild Card spots. That shouldn’t be a huge problem for Baltimore, even on the road, as the O’s took care of the Mariners earlier this year by winning two of three games. Baltimore fans can probably bank on a similar result for this series, while getting it for just $32 on average. Regardless of the outcome, fans are getting in on the cheap to see a stacked Orioles offense go toe-to-toe with the likes of Nelson Cruz, Robinson Cano and Kyle Seager. Fireworks can be expected, especially if Baltimore manages to avoid “The King” Felix Hernandez in this series.

Most Expensive – 8/15/2015 vs. Oakland Athletics at Camden Yards | Avg: $55.93 | Get-in: $12

J.J. Hardy is the man of the hour on August 15, when fans will have the opportunity to snag a very cool Hardy Replica Jersey upon entrance into the stadium. It comes at a price, though, as this game sports the highest average ticket price of any Orioles home game this month, being $55.93. Not only that, with the Athletics coming into town for this affair, there could be a lot of impact offense at Camden Yards throughout the series. If you’re wondering Baltimore’s priciest game for the month overall, that would be a clash with the Texas Rangers at Globe Life Park, where fans can get in for just $68.51 on average. At the same time, the get-in price is as little as $7.
