(TiqIQ/CBS) – Coming off a 93-win season last year, the Detroit Tigers have made three straight playoff appearances dating back to the 2011 season. Detroit has gotten off to a strong start for the 2014 campaign, already sitting atop the American League Central. Despite some major offseason changes, such a hiring a rookie manager in Brad Ausmus, trading first baseman Prince Fielder and starting pitcher Doug Fister, the Tigers still remain one of the teams to beat in the American League. Detroit Tigers tickets are some of the most expensive in baseball at an average secondary market price of $105.09 and the top five series across the Detroit Tigers schedule are even higher in price.

9/12/14 – 9/14/14- Cleveland Indians vs. Detroit Tigers | Avg. Price: $207.09

The Cleveland Indians visit Comerica Park in mid-September for the final three of 19 regular season meetings between these two AL Central rivals. Indians vs. Tigers tickets for this three game series will have an average price of $207.09, 97% above the home average. By this point in the season, these two teams could be vying for the AL Central title and a playoff spot, which could drive up the price even higher.

9/25/14- 9/28/14- Minnesota Twins vs. Detroit Tigers | Avg. Price: $203.17

This series against the Minnesota Twins will be the final home games of the regular season for Detroit. The average price across the four game series is currently $203.17, a 93.33% increase above home average at Comerica Park. With the Tigers as a favorite to make the playoffs, this should not be the final game played in Detroit for 2014.

7/3/14-7/6/14- Tampa Bay Rays vs. Detroit Tigers | Avg. Price: $154.11

This four game series begins on July 3rd and will be the first of seven meetings between these two powerhouse teams in a possible playoff preview. The Tampa Bay Rays are considered by some MLB experts to be the odds on favorite to come out of the American League, but the Tigers could use this series as a first step to ensuring that’s not the case.

8/1/14- 8/3/14- Colorado Rockies vs. Detroit Tigers | Avg. Price: $151.17

The Colorado Rockies will visit Comerica Park at the start of August for a three game series. This will be the only time these two will play against each other during the regular season. Colorado isn’t currently considered one of the top teams in the National League, but the first weekend in August brings the perfect setting for a trip to the ballpark, regardless of the opposing team.

8/4/14- 8/7/14- New York Yankees vs. Detroit Tigers | Avg. Price: $149.36

There is some history between these two ball clubs, as the Tigers are responsible for eliminating the New York Yankees in their past two postseason appearances. Tigers vs Yankees tickets for this series are currently 42.13% above the home average.

Behind a two-time MVP in Miguel Cabrera and two CY Young Award winners in Justin Verlander and Max Scherzer, a high price should be well worth the quality of play on the field this season in Detroit.
