An American East League Division rivalry will be renewed when the Baltimore Orioles and New York Yankees square off this season. Baltimore is the reigning American League East champion, but New York boasts an impressive winning tradition. Success breeds competition; therefore, these two teams boast high ticket prices on the secondary ticket market when playing each other.
There will be 19 games played between Baltimore and New York during the 2015 season. With nine games scheduled at Camden Yards, the average ticket price for Yankees vs. Orioles tickets is $83.99, which is higher than Baltimore’s overall average home ticket price of $74.78. With 10 games scheduled at Yankee Stadium, the average Yankees vs. Orioles ticket price will be $101.57 which is slightly higher, 0.13 percent, than the Yankees overall average home ticket price of $101.43.
The highest-priced game between these two teams will occur at Camden Yards on June 13th. That game currently owns an average ticket price of $113.37, while the get-in price is $27. The second highest-priced game will be held at Yankee Stadium on May 10th. That game currently owns an average ticket price of $111.13 while the get-in price is $13.
After winning 96 games last season, expectations are high for the Baltimore Orioles. The Yankees won 84 games last season, but failed to make the playoffs for the second straight season. Both fan bases are hoping that their teams can turn in winning campaigns during the 2015 season as both teams vie for a World Series Championship.
