Opening day tickets are going to be tough with only 5,000 available. They already went on sale for Presidents Club and Diamond Club ticket holders (both clubs have been rebranded). For full season plan holders since 2005 they go on sale at ten this morning, for the rest of the full season plan holders they go on sale at two. The big question is whether there will be any left for the second group. No chance there will be any left when half season plan holders get their shot tomorrow.
So far there are 26 tickets listed on StubHub, scattered around the lower bowl. It looks like the club plan holders have already been pushed into the outfield, likely meaning that a large percentage are already gone. No tickets have been sold yet. Prices start at $719 each for seats halfway up the section in centerfield. Buyers have the buy the full block of four so almost three grand for the pod. I'll be very interested to see if resale prices drop or if people pay these prices.
They will have 4,000 seats in the lower bowl and 1,000 in the scoreboard area. Why not open the 300s and 400s? They could get a lot more fans in the ballpark with the exact same spacing or allow for additional spacing for the same number of fans if spacing is the goal.
Parking prices on Spot Hero are set to what they would be on a normal opening day, $45-100 to park within a couple blocks of the ballpark. These I expect to drop because one ninth of the fans in the ballpark means one ninth of the cars looking to park. The Yards lot could end up with zero cars if they don't realize that there won't be any overflow from the cheaper lots.
The rest of April goes on sale too this week. It will be interesting to see if the full season plan holders buy up 100% of the tickets today or if there is a decent number available for the mid-week games for the half and quarter season plans.
