The Minnesota Twins are looking to duplicate or even improve upon their first 50-game stretch that shockingly has them in the lead of the AL Central division. At 30-19, the Twins are a half-game ahead of the Kansas City Royals and have a 3.5-game lead on the Detroit Tigers.
The Twins enter June on a two-game win streak, not to mention with a streak that has seen them go 8-2 in their last ten games. First-year manager Paul Molitor and the rest of the club are starting to gain a little bit of national recognition, and in the process, Twins ticket prices are on the rise as long as the team’s surprising success continues.
The most and least expensive Twins tickets for the month of June on the secondary market are listed below, with information provided by SeatSmart.com.
Most Expensive: 6/19/2015 | Minnesota Twins vs. Chicago Cubs | Target Field | Average Price: $159.45 | Get-in Price: $28 | Paul Molitor Bobblehead
6/20/2015 | Minnesota Twins vs. Chicago Cubs | Target Field | Average Price: $119.38 | Get-in Price: $36
6/21/2015 | Minnesota Twins vs. Chicago Cubs | Target Field | Average Price: $120.63 | Get-in Price: $27
Molitor played for the Twins from 1996-1998 to conclude his Hall-of-Fame career. The seven-time All-Star and World Series Champion in 1993—when he took home World Series MVP honors—has taken a Twins team with near-zero expectations to one of the best teams in baseball through 50 games. As a result, it’s no surprise that his bobblehead day is the most expensive Twins’ tickets for the month. The other two games in the series round out the top-three most expensive, as the Interleague series with the Chicago Cubs could be a compelling one for two upstart young ballclubs.
6/15/2015 | St. Louis Cardinals vs. Minnesota Twins | Busch Stadium | Average Price: $102.01 | Get-in Price: $3
Two of the five teams that have 30 wins will be clashing in an intriguing Interleague series at Busch Stadium in the middle of the month. St. Louis leads the Major Leagues with a 33-18 record, that includes a stellar 20-7 home record, and with a diehard fanbase, it’s no wonder tickets to Cardinals games are amongst the most sought after in baseball. The high-quality matchup has a get-in price of $3, which any baseball fan will say is quite the value deal. Although there aren’t many negatives to point out about the Twins so far this season, Minnesota is 11-12 on the road thus far.
Least Expensive: 6/3/2015 | Boston Red Sox vs. Minnesota Twins | Fenway Park | Average Price: $35 | Get-in Price: $9
6/4/2015 | Boston Red Sox vs. Minnesota Twins | Fenway Park | Average Price: $39 | Get-in Price: $10
It seems as if the Red Sox faithful aren’t too excited to watch the Twins face their team, but in reality Boston needs all the wins they can get right now. Currently in last place of the American League East, the Red Sox are seven games below .500. Boston fans not paying attention to what’s going on around the league will be surprised with the Twins during their trip to Boston to kick off the month.
