Strasburg Fever Hitting D.C. As Ticket Prices Begin Their Climb
As minor-league batters are quickly finding out, Stephen Strasburg is the real deal. He’s dominated in his eight starts and has drawn record crowds along the way.
Many believe that Strasburg will make his first major league start on June 4th against the Reds. While still speculation at this point, prices for the June 4th game are already 16% above the season average.
Adam Kilgore of the Nationals Journal writes, “The Nationals have not made any indications about Strasburg’s debut date, but his [last minor league] start Saturday seemingly adds to the likelihood he will make his major league debut June 4 at Nationals Park.”
Between the way he’s pitching in the minors and how quickly that day is coming up on the calendar, an announcement could come any day now. When it does prices will surely move above $63. So with prices only slightly above the Nats season average, this may be your last chance to see the second coming and still have money left for a beer to celebrate it. But remember, buy at your own risk, because nothing is set in stone yet.
