2006 ticket prices a mixed bag

The cheap seats get more expensive while individual game tickets decrease slightly.

By STAFF WRITER
Published October 28, 2005

Tampa Bay Devil Rays fans will pay an average of about 2 percent less next season to see the team at Tropicana Field, even though prices for most ticket categories will rise slightly.

The average price for an individual game ticket will dip from $22.86 to $22.35, while the average per-game price for season tickets will fall from $17.57 to $17.09.

But most tickets will see price increases of between $1 and $6. That includes the cheapest seats at the Trop, those in the upper reserve infield, upper reserve outfield and the "Beach" sections. Those seats will cost $8 for regular games, up from $5 during the 2005 season.

Accounting for the small decline in average ticket prices is a sharp drop in the price of 3,500 lower box seats by the home and visiting teams' respective bullpens. Those seats are being recategorized as "lower reserve" seats and will cost $22 and $35, respectively, for regular and "prime" games, compared to $35 and $45 during the 2005 season.
