The Seattle Mariners spent a boatload of money in the offseason, so this team should finally be competitive again in the 2014 season and the Mariners should be one of the more interesting teams to watch in MLB this season. The average price for Seattle Mariners tickets is at $67, which is actually down just under 16% from last season.
The hottest selling series for the Mariners at Safeco Field in 2014 comes against the defending world champion Boston Red Sox. Boston is primed for another run at a World Series and should be a major contender for a title in the American League. Red Sox fans also travel well around the country and should show up in Seattle. The average is at $112, 65% above the Mariners home average.
Speaking of the AL East, the New York Yankees are number two among the hottest-selling series. The Yankees come to town to leave a message for their former teammate, Robinson Cano, who bolted New York for $240 million over 10 years to play on the west coast in Seattle. The Yankees should be right there in the playoff race with plenty of bats in the lineup. The average price for Mariners vs Yankees tickets is at $99, 47% above the home average at Safeco.
Staying in the AL East, the Toronto Blue Jays head southwest to Seattle for the next hottest-selling series at Safeco Field. The Blue Jays struggled last season after all the preseason hype, so they’re hoping to get healthy and get some better pitching in 2014. This mid-week August three-game series averages $81, which is 20% above the home average.
The Atlanta Braves come to Seattle for a quick two-game series in August and this should be a key inter-league series with two teams that have a shot at a Wild Card spot. The Braves lost some key players, but are still in the playoff picture in 2014. It’s an AL West vs NL East battle with an average price of $80, which is just under 20% above the home average in Seattle.
Finally, the Washington Nationals travel west to take on the Mariners in a three-game set to end the month of August. The Nationals have so much young talent and are filled with good pitching and plenty of power, led by the youth of Bryce Harper. This late August series will be very important for both squads and Saturday will include a Felix Hernandez bobblehead and we know all baseball fans love bobbleheads. The average price is at $79, just under 17% above the home average.
