Despite Being 50 Miles Away From Home, Mike Trout's Visit to Philly 25% Below Phillies Tickets Average

May 13 2014, 4:56pm CDT | by

Before Mike Trout became the best player in baseball, he was just a kid from Millville, New Jersey. Millville is only 50 miles away from Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, where Trout’s team, the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, will be starting a two game series on Tuesday night. A story on nj.com reported a large group of residents from Millville and the surrounding areas will be making the trip to ballpark to see Trout take on the Phillies. About 4,000 people will be wearing Mike Trout jerseys cheering on the local star after being able to purchase discounted tickets.

Other fans heading to Philadelphia to see the two games against the Angels will also get of a discount, at least on the secondary market. According to TiqIQ, the combined average ticket price for Tuesday night and Wednesday afternoon are 25.6% below the average price for Phillies tickets during the 2014 season. Tuesday night’s game has an average price of $64.81, 24.5% below Philly’s season average of $85.85. Wednesday afternoon’s game has a $63.40 average price on the secondary market, 26.1% below the season average.

Before this trip to Philadelphia, the Millville group had gone to Oriole Park at Camden Yards to see the Angels play the Baltimore Orioles in past seasons. This season, secondary market Orioles tickets could be an even bigger discount when the Angels visit. For an upcoming three game series from July 29-31 the average price is currently $54.33, 32% below Baltimore’s season average of $79.97. With the Orioles currently in first place in the American League East and the Angels continuing to creep over .500, the price of that series could rise by July depending on the standings.

This will be Trout’s first trip to Philadelphia and first series against the Phillies in his young career. Though he grew up just 50 miles from Philly, Trout grew up idolizing New York Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter like many now-22 year olds from New Jersey did. Trout and the Angels carried a much higher road premium with their trip to Yankee Stadium in April. The average price across the three game series in the Bronx from April 25-27 was $118.91, 12% above the $106.11 average for Yankees tickets.

If Trout can replicate the career success he’s had a Yankee Stadium in his career, he should be in for a good series against the Phillies. In 46 plate appearances through 10 games at Yankee Stadium, Trout has a .410 batting average, .500 on base percentage and .692 slugging percentage with two home runs, five doubles and six stolen bases.
