Today, the Rays announced ticket prices for the 2012 season. According to the Rays, 90 percent of the tickets will remain the same price in 2012 or will decrease. The other ten percent of tickets (nearly 3,500 each game) will be raised $1-2 per ticket, and will include lower box and outfield seats “for a minimal number of games.”

The cheapest ticket will upper deck seats that will be $9 for 28 of the 81 home games.

Matt Silverman pointed out that the Rays are still one of the most affordable options in sports. “Our on-field accomplishments over the past four seasons have provided some memorable moments for our fans,” said Silverman.  “Just as important to us is that our ticket prices have remained among the most affordable in all of professional sports.”

    No one ever points out that the lower box seats are the ones that most people would like to sit at for games. They are the most important gauge of Rays pricing policies.
    I have had season tickets in the lower box since 2004 and my price has almost doubled since then. That’s only 7 years!
    The Rays keep raising prices slowly so as to keep attendance down and keep their argument for a new stadium going.
    And by the way, the food and drink prices keep going up in line with the ticket increases.

    I would love to see how Matt Silverman would fare on the O’Reilly Factor. Just amazing how he is able to squeeze blood out of a turnip.

    No reason to be upset about this.

    What are they getting out of that, maybe a couple hundred thousand dollars?

    You should be satisfied that they operate at that level of efficiency.
