If you want to say MLB tickets are expensive these days, you can make a strong argument. Certain popular teams sell out every game they play, which inflates prices on the resale market quite a bit. In other words, after the organization charges high prices for ticket packages, scalpers and ticket brokers (i.e., scalpers with a computer) bump up the price another 30–40% (often more).
Of course, these rules mostly apply to the good seats in a stadium. You can easily find tickets in the third deck or bleachers at MLB stadiums on any given night in most ballparks. Chances are you’ll get those tickets at or near face value, too.
But can fans enjoy the game from the outer reaches of a ballpark? We believe you can. As long as you have a game plan and execute it at the park, you should have a great time on a low budget. Here is how to survive the cheap seats at MLB games all summer long.
