Late to the Game — On Purpose

Want to get a BIG discount on Twins tickets AND free parking*?

Start by picking a holiday weekend (this one) when lots of fans are out-of-town.

Then, pick a makeup game added to the schedule for a rain-out earlier in the season — in this case, the Twins vs. Kansas City on April 28 (the logic:  lots of folks who were free April 28 couldn’t attend the June 30 game, starting at noon).

Finally, get to the game late, and buy tickets from a scalper (legal in designated areas in front of Target Field).

Net discount?

My son and I scored two choice “dugout” tickets — face value:  $82 — for $25 each.

Best of all:  we only missed the first two (scoreless) innings, getting there in time to see all 9 runs scored (and some nice defensive plays).

P.S:  A baseball ticket — much like a hotel room or airline seat — is the ultimate wasting asset. 

Whatever it’s value ahead of time, after-the-fact it very quickly becomes zero.

*How do you get free parking at a Twins game?

Ride your bike there.
