Baseball fans probably never had it so good. The wave of retro ballparks, starting in the early 1990s, brought baseball back to its roots of open-air stadiums and real grass. In many cases, architects threw in a view of the skyline and maybe even a passing train, too.
Wherever you live, you’re close enough to one of these parks to make a day trip or weekend getaway and see live baseball — out in the sun, the way it was meant to be. (If you live in Tampa Bay, we offer our condolences.)
You don’t have to spend big to see a ballgame, either. While great seats at Wrigley, Fenway, or Yankee Stadium will cost you, you can find bargains in nearly every stadium around the league. We’re not talking only about last-place teams, mind you. The National League’s best ballclub and at least one other contender offer some of the cheapest ticket prices for fans in 2017. Here are the seven cheapest MLB ticket prices you will find on the resale market this season.
7. Detroit Tigers, Comerica Park
You’ll find Comerica Park right in the heart of downtown Detroit, and that makes Tigers games a solid starting point for other plans you may have. As for this year’s team, well, things have become a little embarrassing, but you can still enjoy yourself. After all, any day with Miguel Cabrera on the field is a day you’ve seen a future Hall of Famer. You won’t pay through the nose, either. Tigers tickets averaged $51.17 on the resale market and started below $20 in July for upper deck seats.
