Attend Oakland Games for Mostly Free in April, Seems Like

Heartbreaking update:

OAK

The author, who has spent portions of his life eating little more than vegetable soup and also other kinds of vegetable soup, understands entirely that $16 is different than $0. However, it’s also demonstrably the case that $16 for seven Oakland Athletics baseball games is mostly as close to $0 as baseball tickets will ever get again in all our lives.

I gotta move to the bay, or at least stop being a fan of a team in Chicago so I can pay less than 20 dollars to park.

Why anyone would pay face value for most tickets is beyond me. Stubhub gets you much better prices for certain games. If you are not going to a NYY,NYM,CHI,LAA,STL,TEX game, using Stubhub saves alot of $$$

I’ve had a lot of good options with SeatGeek.com. They aggregate a bunch of ticket sellers sites, which helps, but the real value is their Deal Score system that instantly identifies the seats that they consider to be the best value in the stadium (using what seems to me to be quite rigorous math, click my name for the developer’s blog).

As of a few summers ago, Oakland offered $2 tickets for occasional Tuesday (maybe Thursday?) games.

Wednesday games for $2. They still have that, I think. The seats suck, and they’re in the d’oh.co coliseum, but, you know, $2.

Back in my day those games cost a nickel. And in those days, nickels had pictures of bumblebees on ’em. Gimme five bees for a quarter, you’d say.

And it was $1 hotdogs/sodas on those wed games. Between bart, food, and tickets you only paid like $10 to skip class and see a baseball game. Talk about glory.

I applaud your high regards for your cousin. She is clearly yours for the taking.

They had $2 beers one game. I don’t remember what happened, partially because it was an A’s game and mostly because I had 10 beers.
