Hey everyone, I'm one of those rare baseball fans that actually looks forward to and has enjoyed the first two World Baseball Classics, and I'm actually looking forward to the one in 2013. I was thrilled to find out that New Marlins Park was going to be host to several WBC games, as it gives me another opportunity to visit Miami, and see the new ballpark at the same time.
But I couldn't help but notice on the WBC website, the cost of tickets. $120 for upper deck?
I went to a few games in Toronto back in the 2009 WBC, and aside from the marquee USA vs. Canada game, all other games were pretty low-attendance. I know the groups that will be hosted at Marlins Park are pretty much going to be expected to be any four between the US, DR, PR, Mexico and Venezuela, which obviously means a large Latin American turnout, but these ticket costs are outrageous.
I was hoping that those of you local to Miami would have any better understanding or information of WBC tickets, because as much as I enjoy the thought of seeing baseball at the international stage, the current list of tickets are beyond absurd.
