Rangers raise most ticket prices for '12 season
The Texas Rangers have raised ticket prices for all but the cheapest seats at Rangers Ballpark after their second consecutive World Series.
While most increases are $1 to $4 per ticket, corner box seats increased 23 percent. Those seats will be $53 for non-premier games and $59 for 26 games classified as premier, such as most Friday and Saturday home dates. Those seats were $43 and $48 last season.
Individual ticket prices were announced Tuesday.
Club-level box seats and those in the all-you-can-eat section increased significantly for the second year in a row.
Advance sales for club-level box seats increased from $58 to $66 for regular games, and $65 to $74 for premier games. Club-level box seats were $45 and $55 during the 2010 season.
Seats in the all-you-can-eat section have been raised from $39 to $47 for regular games and from $45 to $53 for premier games. Those seats were $34 and $39 in 2010.
Grandstand tickets are unchanged, $7 for regular games and $8 for premier games. Those seats are $3 for kids 13 and under.
Also unchanged were $6 tickets for kids in the upper reserved sections, though adult tickets increased $1 in those sections, to $16 for regular games and $18 for premier dates.
With the reconfiguration of the center field area, bleacher seats have been replaced by outfield plaza seats that will be $27 and $30 (premier).
Individual game tickets, except for opening day, go on sale March 3.
For the April 6 opener against the Chicago White Sox, fans have to register online for a drawing to determine who gets the chance to buy the remaining limited number of individual reserved seats and standing room tickets. The team is also offering 10-game plans that include a ticket to opening day.
