SOUTH WINDSOR, CT--(Marketwire - Mar 29, 2013) - As opening day of the 2013 Major League Baseball® season rapidly approaches, the Washington Nationals® are already predicted to finish the regular season near the top of the standings. However, Nationals tickets also have had some of the lowest average selling prices on TicketNetwork.com compared to other MLB® teams.
The Nats were eliminated in the first round of last year's postseason after 98 regular season wins, but welcome back the core of that team, including young superstars Bryce Harper and Stephen Strasburg. So far, Nationals tickets listed on TicketNetwork.com have sold for an average of $41, which is nearly 33% less than the league average of $61.
"The Nationals are going to be one of the most exciting teams to watch in person all season long," said Tim Fraser, sports specialist for TicketNetwork.com. "Not to mention they play in one of the best stadiums in baseball."
Less than an hour from D.C. is another young and upcoming baseball team, the Baltimore Orioles®. In contrast to the Nationals, Orioles tickets listed on TicketNetwork.com have sold for an average of $78, the third highest average in the MLB, trailing only the Boston Red Sox® ($96) and the St. Louis Cardinals® ($79).
The MLB season officially starts on Sunday, March 31, when the Houston Astros® face the Texas Rangers® at Minute Maid Park in Houston, TX.
