Opening Day tickets in NY cheaper than Baltimore

Recommended Posts

Orioles open this year on the road in NY on March 28 against the Yankees. The Orioles home opener at Camden Yards is the following week on April 4th, also against the Yankees.

On the secondary market tickets are being sold for as little as $65 for the game in NY, and over $100 for the game in Baltimore.

Anyone going to Opening Day in NY?

I'm surprised you can't get cheaper tickets for the Baltimore game. Who is paying that much to see this group of bad contracts and AAAA replacement level guys?

Opening day is always a big deal in Baltimore regardless of the talent on the team. Wouldn’t read too much into it. There will be bottom dollar tickets and plenty of crowds with 10-15 k fans once we get into the season.

Baltimore Opening Day is like the Preakness. The city shuts down. Plus Day Drinking.

Best bet if you don't care about getting inside for the game... do this.

Get downtown. Drink, Eat, Drink... wait for game to start.  Have another beer. Search StubHub.  Buy cheap ticket. Walk into stadium around the 2nd or 3rd inning.

Worst case, you don't find a ticket and just watch it at the bar.

I'd love to have one of those big comfy seats right behind home plate that are almost always vacant until temps get above 80 degrees.  Always makes me laugh when I see those 3 foot wide seats not filled.

Baltimore OD premium is absurd and it has only gotten worse.....but still fun!  It is basically like Chicago or Cincinnati (always first game, big celebration) and just a big reason to party. It is basically Preakness and less about baseball though. I still love it! 

 

Not like that in NYC.

    • Can you give us a reference about where the evidence is for how "very few left handed pitchers threw 91 back in the late 70s"?     Maybe my statistical search is not looking in the same place.     Yeah, the junk baller who won our last World Series game probably ever.    Just watch the video and honestly tell me you think this guy couldn't pitch today.     
    • So few left handed pitchers threw 91 back in the late 70's that I just find it unlikely from a statistical standpoint.  I'm not old enough to remember late 70's McGregor.  The guy I remember in the 80's was more of a junkballer.
    • At the same time, you cited 103 mph as the reason older generation hitters would not do well today.  Exaggeration goes both ways in making a point about which I too was trying to communicate...i.e.  I do believe that many 1980s era players could certainly play well and thrive in today's game.     And that some of the pitching skill sets today might even be more valuable in today's game than they were back then.   Even if the velocity is not the same.         I certainly accept that the game is played differently today, different after the steroid era, and that the athletes playing it perform those aspects of the game differently than their predecessors.   Still haven't found the speed gun ratings on Scott in high school, but I suspect they were pretty good....I might just ask him...   Scott McGregor, El Segundo (Calif.), 1972 Although a teammate of Hall of Famer George Brett (as a sophomore and junior), it was McGregor who garnered more headlines during his three-year career under El Segundo legendary coach John Stevenson. McGregor was a three-time All-CIF selection and was twice named Player of the Year. He was also a Rawlings All-American as a senior. He set section records (which still stand) for career wins (51), career shutouts (20), shutouts in a season (9), and consecutive no-hitters (2). He also set the section record for career strikeouts (which has since been broken) with 496. He was the No. 14 overall pick in 1972 draft by the Yankees, but he was eventually traded to Baltimore. 
    • He's the top, He's the Colosseum! He's the top, A cornerstone of the Te-am! -- Pole Courter, from the musical "Anything Counts"  
    • You asked about velocity right? I love how you keep mentioning inner circle HoF players.  No word on how Frank Torre would do.  By concentrating on the top .1% you are missing out on an important issue I tried to relay to you.  Your average hitter is a lot more dangerous.   
    • And I think that’s fair. I’m just saying that I think it’s quite possible he would get that bump in today’s game given the emphasis on K’s from a pitching standpoint and hitter’s aggression and willingness to strike out.  It’s definitely a different game though. 
    • Yeah, I am sure Frank Robinson and Hank Aaron would have been just terrified by Kevin Gausman and Tommy Hunter.....lol.
