Bargains To Be Had In Steel City

It’s no secret that, until the new Yankee Stadium opens its doors, Fenway Park is the most expensive ticket in baseball. To take a family of four and get decent infield grandstand seats, you’re looking at somewhere around $600 – and that’s if you get the tickets at the face value of around $100 a pop.

So you can imagine how many Sox fans choked on their Triscuits after seeing this passage in Ken Rosenthal’s latest column:

The Pirates’ new season-ticket packages go for $399, $599, $799 and $999. The $399 plan comes out to less than $5 per game, the $799 plan to less than $10 per game.

Are you kidding me? The most expensive plan is barely more than I pay for two loge tickets to 10 Celtics games! Are times that tough in Pittsburgh? Of course, as was quickly pointed out to me by Ed Harding: “The Pirates stink so much, they should pay YOU to watch their games!” Very true.
