With the Philadelphia Phillies off to a disappointingly slow 6-9 start and the division rival Atlanta Braves setting Major League Baseball ablaze as the hottest team around in the early going, it becomes imperative that the Phillies right the ship quickly.
Fortunately for the Phils, they’ll get a wonderful opportunity to do just that over the next week as they return to Citizens Bank Park for an eight game home stand against the St. Louis Cardinals and Pittsburgh Pirates.
The Phillies will kick off the home stand tonight with Cole Hamels taking the hill against St. Louis ace Adam Wainwright. Wainwright is coming off a four-hit shutout of Milwaukee, complete with 12 strikeouts. Despite the fact that Wainwright is a significant road-pitching draw, ticket prices for tonight’s game are the lowest of the entire eight-game home stand, carrying an average price of $55 dollars. The get-in price for tonight’s contest is $13 dollars.
Prices for Phillies tickets prices receive a slight bump for the remainder of the series, with Friday’s contest checking in at $67, while Saturday and Sunday both price over $70 dollars. However, despite Sunday’s game being nationally televised on ESPN Sunday Night Baseball, it actually carries the lowest get-in price of any game of the series at just $11 dollars. The Cardinals series as a whole carries an average price tag of $69 per ticket, 24% below the Phillies season average of about $91.
- 4/18 Cardinals vs Phillies – $55/$13
- 4/19 Cardinals vs Phillies – $67/$20
- 4/20 Cardinals vs Phillies – $82/$27
- 4/21 Cardinals vs Phillies – $72/$11
- Series Avg: $69 (24% below home avg)
When the Pittsburgh Pirates come to town on Monday, ticket prices drop back down into the 60s. Average tickets for each game of the series are tightly priced, with Tuesday’s contest the least expensive at $62 dollars, and Thursday’s the highest priced at $68. Monday’s game carries the highest get-in price at $15 bucks, while fans can enter the turnstiles on Tuesday for as little as $10.
The average ticket price for the entire series checks in at $65 dollars, 29% below the Phillies season average.
- 4/22 Pirates vs Phillies – $66/$15
- 4/23 Pirates vs Phillies – $62/$10
