If you care:

Tiebreaker game: $5, 8,8,12,15,15,15,20,25,25,35,35,60,60

ALDS: $35,40,45,50,60,70,100,110

ALCS: $75,80,85,90,100,110,140,150

WS: $90,175,190,225,250


We got our invoices today. For 2 tickets I'm looking at $2700. That's for 2 tickets to each game.

Someone said these prices are set by the team, not by the league. These certainly look like for more money than what I saw here for the Sox playoff games.

The Tigers could charge whatever they want. I mean think about it, what else is there in Detroit, let's break it down;

1. Eminem
2. Detroit Tigers playoff baseball. (How they will not accidentely cover the field with tarp at the end of September, just out of instinct, is beyond me.)
3. Kid Rock/Ted Nugent (same dude).
4. Eminem
5. Umm....................................
6. Red Wings Hockey. (I'm a Hawks fan, but this is the best they got, for real).
8. Barry Sanders, old.
9. Windsor, Canada.
10. Eminem
11. burnt out buildings, many.
12. Robocop

And now I am stumped. I know that no one in Detroit has money so they likely could not charge any more. And it's not like you can make a killing selling bootleg Obie Trice cds, so......yeah, I dunno. The makeup of Commerica for the 1st round? 95% Auburn Hills residents, listening to Eminem on the way.:rolleyes:

MLB sets the prices for the postseason so I don't know why yours are so much different than ours. For example, WS tickets for the Sox are $125, $150, $200, $300. Beats me what the deal is...

Have there previously been special (?) prices or ordering procedures for a tiebreaker game?

If you want to ignore this invoice and give up your tickets, I will take over for you.

I thought they were set by the league too but one of the radio stations said the Tigers got to set their own prices. Why? I don't know.

I was basing my expectations on what I read here last week about post season prices.

I think the team gets to set prices for any tiebreaker games but as far as I know, MLB runs the whole postseason and sets ticket prices and seating areas. For example, my seats are considered Upper Reserved during the regular season but are considered Upper Box for the postseason. MLB set this criteria.

Nobody cares that you don't care. If you see a thread with a title that you don't care about, DON'T READ IT. Quit wasting our time (and the site's bandwith) with pointless posts.

On topic, what's the capacity of Comerica? More seats may mean less money for each... just a thought.

I can't imagine that MLB would set a goal for total dollars taken in for a given stadium and then adjust the prices as need be based on capacity. The CBA sets the minimum amount that teams must receive so you'll never see prices set such that a lesser amount is achieved (unless the games don't sell out).

I'm not sure how many seating levels that MLB uses so the prices could be correct. Maybe they in fact have different pricing depending on the stadium. Who knows? Oblong says he has an actual invoice so I can only assume those are the actual numbers. But if they aren't, I'll have to send one of Detroit's finest after him...

I have the actual invoice right in my hand and those figures are straight from that.

Capacity at Comerica is officially just over 39,000 but they don't consider standing room official. Isn't US Cellular around the same?

The All Star Game last year only had 3 price levels. This has caused a decent uproar because people are accusing the Tigers of capitalizing too quickly on the success. Their response is that they are "relative to post season prices for the other 3 major sports teams".

I don't know how they figured out the Lions post season prices.

My question/point really is more towards whether the league sets the price or not. If they do then they must have different standards for different teams.

How do the prices for the Sox this year compare to last year?

Last season, ALDS tickets ranged from $30-$55, ALCS ranged from $65-$100 and WS ranged from $125 to $185.

This year, the ALDS and ALCS prices are the same but WS now ranges from $125-$200.

I'm not including the Scout Seats (seats behind home plate) in these totals.

9. Windsor, Canada.

There's a giant casino in Windsor, and a great BBQ place too (Tunnel BBQ). The rest of it is kind of a hellhole, but still! Don't knock it!

Windsor's a great city to party in.

Is the smoking ban for all of Ontario or just Windsor? I know that Windsor is smoke free now. That's either good or bad, depending on your preference obviously.

As of 2006, all of Ontario is smoke free. If you are caught smoking indoors, you will be shot by firing squad. :redneck

The Casinos in Detroit and the NY side of Niagara have suddenly become very popular since they became smoke free on the Canada side. Expect a change in the casinos shortly.

That was just plain rude.

You forgot:
- Motown Records, arguably (along with Sun) the single most important record label in the history of the United States
- Ford
- General Motors
- Madonna
- Bob Seger
- Alice Cooper
- and on and on. Like all cities, Detroit has its good and it has its bad. I encourage you to go check out both.

Not like Chicago's without flaws either...or were you using Gary as your point of comparison? :redneck
