The Minnesota Twins are at 36-38 after sweeping a four-game series against the Chicago White Sox. In the underachieving AL Central that puts the Twins just five games back of the division lead. That doesn’t mean fans are chomping at the bit to see the Twins play at Target Field. Right now Twins tickets are one of the cheapest in the league with an average price of $62.14. Three of the five most expensive games left on the Twins schedule have more to do with the opponent (the New York Yankees) than anything in particular with the Twins with even their most expensive game is coming in at an average price of less than $80, the average ticket price in the MLB this season.
1) 7/5 vs. Yankees | Avg. Price: $75.07 | Get-in Price: $19
The most expensive game on the list is also Tom Brunansky bobblehead day, with the Twins giving fans a bobblehead of the right fielder celebrating his 1985 All Star game appearance.
