The Angels look to continue to be the superior of LA’s two teams, as well as the one with the best and most exciting player in baseball (that would be Mike Trout, folks). But despite an MVP-caliber season from Trout and the signing of megastar Albert Pujols to the third largest deal in baseball history, Angels attendance fell for the third consecutive season in 2012, and sixth time in the past seven years.
The Angels nearly went dollar-for-dollar with the Dodgers this summer, signing slugger Josh Hamilton to a $125 million dollar deal. Not many baseball fans can remember a heart of the order like Trout, Pujols and Hamilton, and excitement has manifested itself accordingly.
The average Angels tickets on opening day last year would have run you $59 dollars. Currently, the average Angels ticket for the season sits at $78.11, a sizeable increase. The top three most expensive series of the season include the Yankees on 6/15, Red Sox on 7/06 and Cubs on 6/05, coming in at an average ticket price of $140.63, $128.09 and $98.49 respectively. Even with a lowly team, Cubs tickets remain a strong draw for interleague matchups. If you’re looking to catch a game at a bargain, you’ll likely see familiar AL opponents in the Royals, White Sox and Atheltics, who round out the three cheapest series of the season.
