Tim Tebow Is Driving Up All-Star Ticket Prices. Is His MLB Debut Closer Than Ever?
Tim Tebow may not be in the MLB yet, but his fans are hedging that he’ll make it there soon.
The Heisman winner-turned AA baseball outfielder was named to the Double-A Eastern League All-Star Game last week. And after the announcement was made, ticket prices soared to nearly six times the original price.
“The cheapest ticket on Vivid rose from $20 to $115 dollars. On StubHub, the cheapest option is $45 per ticket with the most expensive topping out at $195 for club seating,” New Jersey-based newspaper The Trentonian reported. “All seating is sold out for the game with only a few standing-room-only choices available.”
Right now, Tim Tebow plays for the AA Binghampton Rumble Ponies, which is a minor league team within the Mets franchise. He’s been fairly outspoken about wanting to make it to the major leagues, and earlier this year Mets GM Sandy Alderson seemed to agree.
“I think he will play in the Major Leagues,” he said. “That’s my guess. That’s my hope. And to some extent now after a year and a half, a modest expectation.”
