Okay, so now Alabama has a $42 million baseball stadium – really, more, since that was just the renovation cost. In a couple of weeks the season begins and it will be important that Sewell-Thomas Stadium has what former Alabama Basketball Coach C.M. Newton called the most important ingredient in home field advantage – “fannies in the seats.”
While sitting is neither required nor expected in the right field student plaza, the University of Alabama Athletics TIDE PRIDE/Ticket Office announced Monday afternoon that single-game tickets, mini-plan packages, and group seating options are now available for the 2016 Crimson Tide baseball season at the newly renovated Joe. Three mini-plan options are available in the infield and outfield reserved seating.
Want to check out the stadium and Coach Mitch Gaspard’s 2016 Crimson Tide baseball team? Bama will host its final three scrimmages this weekend in Tuscaloosa before starting regular-season action on Feb. 19 against the Maryland Terrapins.
For the mini-plan options, fans can select a collection of any 4-, 8-, or 12-game packages that are available at both adult and youth rates. Infield reserve sections cost $110 (12), $75 (8), and $40 (4) for adults, while youth prices are set at $100 (12), $70 (8), and $35 (4). The outfield reserve seating costs $95 (12), $65 (8), and $35 (4) for adults and $85 (12), $55 (8), and $30 (4) for fans 12 and under.
Single-game tickets are also on sale for the 2016 season. Weekend single-game seats for adults cost $12 in the infield reserved sections and $10 in the outfield reserved areas, while weekday tickets in the infield reserve are $8. Youth prices for the weekend cost $9 on the infield and $7 in the outfield, with the midweek games set at $5 for infield reserved seating.
Special midweek promotions are also available for the outfield reserve seating areas. Tuesday games will once again be “Two-for-One” with fans receiving two tickets for the price of one seat. Wednesday midweek contests will feature $5 tickets for all fans sitting in the outfield section.
Those looking to entertain a party of 15 or more at the new Joe this season can select from two different options. The first option for fans is weekend group seating in the outfield reserve with tickets set at $7 per adult or $3 for youth. The other option for fans is a midweek group outing, with rates set at $5 for all fans.
Fans who have already purchased season will be receiving packages next week. The earliest anticipated delivery date for season tickets is Feb. 15, running up until Opening Day.
To purchase mini-plan, single-game and season tickets for the 2016 season, fans may contact the Alabama ticket office, located in the lobby of Coleman Coliseum at 205-348-2262 or at RollTide.com.
