The 2010 season started off with a bang when Jason Heyward hit a home run in his first career at-bat. The Braves definitely had their ups and downs throughout the season but in the end the Braves and their fans couldn’t be all that upset with the results other than the fact that it marked the end of the Bobby Cox era.
Bobby Cox will go down in history as one of the greatest MLB coaches of all-time, Cox ended his career fourth on the all-time managerial win list with 2504 wins. Fredi Gonzàlez has some big shoes to fill and will take over as the Braves manager in 2011.
The end of the regular season was a little rough for the Braves as they were just 14-16 in their final 30 games which included a 1-5 record against their division rival the Philadelphia Phillies.
The Atlanta Braves completed the 2010 season with a 91-71 record and took second place in the NL East finishing six games behind the Phillies. Lucky enough, the Braves clinched a wild card berth and faced off against the San Francisco Giants in the NLDS.
As we all know the Braves season came to an end against the Giants after losing three of four in the NLDS. The Braves would have loved to send their long-time coach out with a World Series but it just was not meant to be.
Atlanta Braves tickets for regular season games at Turner Field averaged $36.57 per ticket on the secondary market which placed them toward the bottom of the league in terms of average ticket price.
The most expensive ticket on average to a Braves regular season home game was $54.65 per ticket for the October 2 game against the Philadelphia Phillies while the least expensive ticket on average was $19.73 per ticket for the August 19 game against the Washington Nationals. We expect that Braves home game ticket prices on the secondary market will remain toward the bottom of the league for the 2011 season.
