Baseball fans looking to see the Toronto Blue Jays make their season debut this Thursday are in luck. Tickets for the Jays home opener are still being sold at a reasonable price, so you still have a chance to score last-minute seats. Tickets to the game are as low as $41.50 right now on Ticketmaster, with the pricier tickets going for around $170.05.
You may not think $41 is all that "cheap" for a Jays game, but if you compare it to what you would be paying to see the Leafs during a regular season game, you'll quickly find a whole new level of appreciation for Jays ticket prices. Cheap Leafs tickets are usually somewhere around $111.00.
The opener is sure to be an exciting one as the Jays face off against the Detroit Tigers. Toronto defeated the Milwaukee Brewers in a 2-0 victory in Montreal on Tuesday, finishing off their Grapefruit League tenure with a 14-15 record.
Toronto is well positioned for the game, currently speculated as the -140 favourites with the Tigers coming in as the +130 underdogs, according to Sportsnet.
Detroit will be heading into the 6ix with a slightly better 15-15 standing in Grapefruit League. However, the Tigers won only 64 games last year for the second year in a row, making them an exciting matchup for the Jays.
Although the weight of the MLB world is not sitting on the shoulders of these two teams today, both still have something to prove, which should make for some exciting baseball.
