It’s no secret that Dodger Stadium is one of the top-rated sports venues in all of sports. The scenery and history of the stadium alone make it a must-visit location in Southern California. Many of us weren’t even born when the Dodgers last hosted an All-Star game in Los Angeles.
This coming All-Star Game and Homerun Derby on July 18-19 will be the first to take place at the stadium since 1980 when LA hosted their very first one where the National League beat the American League 4-2. The problem with fans having to wait for over 30 years for this event to come back to Chavez Ravine is that tickets are now in high demand.
With demand comes higher ticket prices for Dodgers fans(and others). According to TickPick, an online ticket marketplace; Tickets for the events are set to be the most expensive ever for an All-Star event.
This year's Home Run Derby and MLB All-Star Game at Dodger Stadium are on track to be the most expensive ever, according to @TickPick. The cheapest ticket for the Derby is $185 and for the ASG is $316. The most expensive ticket for the Derby is $3,741 and for the ASG is $5,567.

This is an 18% increase from the previous record set in San Diego’s Petco Park according to Bob Nightengale of USA Today. The cheapest All-Star game ticket sold at Coors Field in Denver, Colorado for the 2021 MidSummer Classic was $195 for comparison. Dodgers fans apparently bring in the money.
The get-in price is currently $319. Easily the most in demand All Star game on record at TickPick.

These prices make it very difficult for the everyday fan to be able to attend a game of this magnitude. The average cost of two tickets alone is over $600. This doesn’t include the cost of Dodgerdogs or beverages at the stadium.
Although the All-Star week festivities at Dodger Stadium are a once in a lifetime opportunity for many fans, the cost of attending the games makes it almost impossible to attend. Rather than attending the event in person, it might be best to sit back and enjoy them on TV from the comfort of our homes this year.
However, if you want to watch Mookie Betts, Trea Turner, Tony Gonsolin, and Clayton Kershaw in action at Dodger Stadium during the All-Star game week events, be prepared to spend a pretty penny.
