Red Sox announce ticket price increase for 2020 season

Despite a vastly disappointing season from the Boston Red Sox, the organization is increasing ticket prices by 1.7 percent in 2020. 

The price increase will apply to games in the Diamond Tier as well as in Tiers one, two and three -- a.k.a. the most sought after games, which includes matchups with the New York Yankees. Tiers four and five, however, will see a slight decrease in prices as those games are not the most desriable. 

You can see what an average ticket will cost for each section of the ballpark by using the photograph below taken from CBS Boston.

The Red Sox have increased ticket prices every year since 2016, according to WEEI's Rob Bradford, so there's really no surprise the 2018 World Series Champions have hiked the prices once again.

While they'll be taking more change out of your pocket, they have not yet mentioned whether Mookie Betts will return for the upcoming season.

Verdugo was, of course, acquired in the blockbuster trade that sent Mookie Betts and David Price to the Los Angeles Dodgers. The 24-year-old hit .294 with 12 homers in 106 games with L.A. last year.

With home run No. 1 out of the way, Red Sox fans will hope to see many more where that came from during Verdugo's tenure in Boston.
