Opening Day Seats Hard to Find

It’s no surprise that Opening Day is a hot ticket this year – it is every year. Still, there are usually tickets available one way or another. Last year in the postseason there were hundreds of tickets available for each game at StubHub. As I check this at 8pm, there are only 56 tickets available on StubHub (the cheapest is a standing room only for $145). The story is pretty much the same at ebay where there’s not even a full page of listings.

Now I know that it’s only 16 hours from the first pitch, but with StubHub’s onsite pickup, and the mechanisms for season ticket holders to email tickets to buyers, this seems to be an astoundingly low number of tickets available.

I guess this is good news, because it is more tickets in the hands of fans instead of ticket brokers. With a miniscule public sale, pretty much every Opening Day ticket was distributed to season ticket holders. But if you aren’t in that group, you’re pretty much out of luck.

I’m sure there will be tickets available on the street tomorrow, but if StubHub and eBay are any indication of inventory, they will be few and far between.
