HOUSTON - Tickets for the Houston Astros home opener are the second-most expensive since 2011, when TicketIQ began tracking post-World Series title ticket prices.

The cheapest tickets for the 6:10 p.m. April 2 game against the Baltimore Orioles at Minute Maid Park are going for about $125 each, according to a report on the price-tracking website.

That comes in second to the home opener tickets for the Boston Red Sox after they clinched the World Series title in 2013. Tickets for that team’s 2014 home opener went for $155 each.

The cheapest tickets for the Chicago Cubs home opener last year after the team’s first World Series title in more than a century went for $85 each.

If you don’t have money to spend on home-opener tickets, prices are much lower for subsequent games, at an average of $40 each, according to TicketIQ. The cheapest tickets are for the Angels series at the end of April, for under $20, bloggers said.
