MLB Ticket prices double for All-Star events

Wednesday, April 30, 2008

NEW YORK -- Fans will pay starry prices for this year's All-Star game at Yankee Stadium.

Tickets will be priced at $150 to $725 for the July 15 game, Major League Baseball announced Tuesday. That's up from $75 to $285 for last year's game at San Francisco and $10 to 15 for box and reserved seats the last time the All-Stars were at Yankee Stadium, in 1977.

Tickets for the Home Run Derby and workout day on July 14 are $100 to $650, an increase from $50 to $225 last year. Tickets for the Futures game on July 13 are $50 to 225, up from $22.50 to $125 last year.

Prices likely will decrease for the 2009 All-Star game, to be hosted by the Cardinals.
