What are the least expensive Major League Baseball games in 2023?
What are the MLB games that you can get into for $5.00 a ticket (or somewhere close to that price). The 3 cheapest MLB games we found (so far) in 2023 are: Giants at White Sox on April 5, Nationals at Angels on April 10 and Diamondbacks at Cardinals on April 18. It is surprising to see the St. Louis Cardinals hosting one of the least expensive games of the season, but that is a by-product of playing an early season game on a Tuesday. As the season unfolds there will be plenty of more “$5.00 MLB games” particularly when sellers drop prices as the game approaches. If you are not going to a Major League Baseball game in 2023, then it is not because of price because there are plenty of ticket options which fans can purchase for $5.00 to $8.00 per ticket.

How many years has TicketCity been selling Major League Baseball tickets?
Our first season selling MLB tickets was 1993 when the Toronto Blue Jays won the World Series and Frank Thomas was the MVP (AL) along with Barry Bonds (NL). The top draft pick that year was a player named Alex Rodriguez. So yes, we have been selling baseball tickets for a long time.

What is the best venue in baseball to see a ball game?
We have been fortunate to attend plenty of Major League games over our career. Our team has attended games in just about every ballpark in baseball including some that are gone now (RIP old Yankee Stadium). Our favorites to see a ball game: Fenway Park and Wrigley Field. Although we will also suggest you check out the Rangers new ballpark, Globe Life Field, and its hard to top the experience at Yankee Stadium on a Friday or Saturday night in the Summer.
