Bucs Hike 2013 Ticket Fees

PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) -- Don't adjust your screen: the Pittsburgh Pirates are selling playoff tickets.

The team announced that those currently holding full or partial season tickets shall receive information in the mail this week about tickets to the 2012 Major League Baseball postseason. Those fans will receive as much as a 30 percent discount on the cost of individual game tickets.

Current Pirates season-ticket holders will be able to buy the same number of postseason ticket strips as there are seats in their account, as well additional strips equal to the number of seats in their plan, or a maximum of four additional strips per account.

Fans who are not current season-ticket holders, but put a deposit down toward a 2013 full or partial plan will also receive priority. The difference is they will be able to purchase playoff strips at the individual ticket prices.

Speaking of the 2013 campaign, the Pirates, for the second year in a row, concurrently announced an increase in ticket prices for next season. The new average ticket price for next season will be $17.21, which is still 36 percent below the 2012 Major League Baseball average price of $26.98.
