When you’re the defending World Series Champions and winners of two of the previous three, the world is yours – or in this case, the financial market.
With just a week until gates across the country officially open, the San Francisco Giants own the highest average priced ticket to Opening Day at $293 dollars, a lofty price given average ticket prices to the second place Baltimore Orioles (yes, the Baltimore Orioles) home opener on April 5th is currently sitting at $265 bucks.
For comparison sake, the New York Yankees average ticket price for their home opener is $249 dollars. The Boston Red Sox, $255. The *gags* *vomits* *gags* Los Angeles Dodgers, who open against our Giants, are currently going for a more paltry $234 dollars, though, if you wait until April 2nd – the second game of the season – you can watch the Giants and Dodgers battle for a much more wallet friendly $55 bucks.

And while you’re there, maybe shed a tear for Miami Marlin fans who have an average Opening Day ticket price of just $68 bucks – down from $238 bucks last year. So much for that new stadium, eh?
