And as a sign of the times, the Orioles will begin instituting dynamic pricing for single games. Dynamic pricing means that the prices of tickets will fluctuate from day to day depending on the demand for a specific game. More than a dozen teams across Major League Baseball use the ticketing strategy.
For fans interested in purchasing single-game tickets to watch the Orioles play teams such as the Yankees and Red Sox, plan ahead. Under dynamic pricing, tickets to these games will likely rise as the date approaches.
I've always wondered why big ticket sports teams don;t go to auction style pricing of tickets. I would venture a guess that the marginal benefit of having one more person in a seat (the ridiculous revenue from parking, monopoly-priced concessions, souvenirs,...) would far outweigh the marginal reduction in revenue from discounted ticket prices for low demand games. I'm just guessing, but it seems like it would be pretty easy to test.
