Seeking To Defend AL East Crown, Orioles An Attraction With MLB Tickets

The Baltimore Orioles are seeking to head into July with a narrow lead atop the AL East. That can fluctuate from day-to-day, with the Blue Jays, Yankees and Rays all within one game of each other, but Baltimore remains a serious contender inside the division thanks to a monstrous offense, having 348 runs scored up to this point.

The Orioles are dancing a fine line between being a scary division winner and completely missing the playoffs, so they’ll surely be looking to grab more of an edge in the AL East with a stout showing in the month of July. Let’s take a closer look at their odds of making that happen as we analyze the value of Baltimore Orioles tickets via their cheapest and most expensive games of the month:

Cheapest – 7/2/2015 VS. Texas Rangers | Avg: $28 | Get-in: $2

Baltimore welcomes the Rangers into town on July 2, as they get the month going in style with this super cheap matchup. Texas is no world-beater, being a .500 team that has struggled a bit lately, but they still carry a powerful offense (326 runs scored), which could result in this game having a lot of runs. The Orioles might have a stiff test on their hands given their own shaky pitching, but both sides figure to have the ability to send balls flying in this matchup regardless of who is on the hill. Either way, the average price here is dirt cheap, while the cheap seats are a flat-out steal at $2. That’s a surprise, given that tickets to see the Rangers usually attract more action, based on their own assortment of talented players such as Prince Fielder and Adrian Beltre.

Most Expensive – 7/23/2015 @ New York Yankees | Avg: $109.26 | Get-in: $14

Orioles tickets hold major value at Camden Yards this month, which is never more obvious than when you look at their most expensive home game of July – a meeting with the Nationals on July 11 that has an average ticket price of just $68.67. Baltimore tickets do rise up a bit elsewhere in July, though, as this July 23 date at Yankee Stadium unsurprisingly tops them all, with the competition for division supremacy so extremely high. New York’s bats are a tough matchup, and that’s been evident in the first ten games between the clubs in 2015, as both sides have combined for a ridiculous 97 total runs (with the season series tied 5-5). Needless to say, the price spike is fairly minor and fans from both sides can safely bank on another explosive (and meaningful) showdown. Those attending the game can also rely on easy and convenient Yankee Stadium parking from ParkWhiz, which has parking spots around the ballpark starting for as low as just $7.
