Starting on May 1st, the Texas Rangers will be home in Arlington for a nice little homestand, taking on the Sox. Yes, a pair or Sox actually as the White Sox and the Red Sox both come to town in back to back series. It seems fans are willing to pay a premium to see the Red Sox as compared to the White Sox. According to TiqIQ, the average ticket price for the White Sox series sits at $36.54, while the average price for the Red Sox series sits at $85.14. This sizeable difference not only reflects a fans desire to see the Red Sox over the White Sox, but also a weekend series as opposed to mid-week. All these factors come into play with average ticket prices.
The Rangers currently sit atop the American League West division and are 7-2 at home. Take a look at the Texas Rangers schedule from TicketCity here.
