Red Sox fans still rejoicing over the World Series win may be in for some sticker-shock come baseball season.
Friday, the team introduced a variable pricing structure for all the regular-season home games in the 2014 season. It will raise prices for 16 high-demand games and lower them for 16 lower-demand games. The 49 games in the middle will have a mixture of increased, decreased, and unchanged prices.
Overall, Sox tickets are rising by 4.8%- based on average price - that's the first such increase in 3 years.
The Sox aren't alone though – all 30 MLB teams will introduce a variable or dynamic ticket pricing structure this season.
If you're looking for one of the cheaper tickets, aim for weeknight games in April, May, and September. Those higher-priced tickets will be for high-demand games like Opening Day and Yankees games.
