The Los Angeles Dodgers have high hopes this season after going to the 2013 National League Championship Series and falling just short of the World Series, losing in six to the St. Louis Cardinals. With increased expectations have come increased prices for Dodger tickets, as the average ticket price has gone up 20% from 2013. Currently, the average ticket price is $60.80 compared to 2013’s average of $50.62. Nonetheless, the Dodgers still rank amongst the cheapest in the league despite playing in the second largest market in the United States.
An interesting note to the Los Angeles Dodgers 2014 season is that all five of their most expensive remaining games take place in the month of September. Moreover three of the top five are all from the same series, their last series of the regular season against the Colorado Rockies.
This series begins on September 26th and currently Dodgers tickets are going for $85.66. With that ticket, fans will be able to enjoy a postgame fireworks show. The following day, tickets go up to $86, but a get-in of only $8. The highest average ticket price for any game this season is their final game of the year and Fan Appreciation Day on the 28th. Tickets are almost 40% higher than the next closest game this season and one of the main reasons why tickets may be higher is, oddly enough, a Babe Ruth bobblehead giveaway that day, even though Ruth never played for the Dodgers. However, Ruth was with the team for one lone season as their first base coach in 1938 when they were still known as the Brooklyn Dodgers.
The final game to crack the Los Angeles Dodgers Top 3 games of the season is their August 5th tilt intrastate rival the Los Angeles Angels. This game is the third most expensive game of the season with an average ticket price of $86.73 will also be Cap Day at the ballpark. Another game of note is Tuesday, September 2nd when the Dodgers host the Nationals. This game has the added bonus of featuring a bobblehead giveaway of Los Angeles Laker legend and minority owner of the Dodgers Magic Johnson.
