I have dealt with scalpers before but they are not always the same in all locations. And with a party of four it is especially awkward to do that. What kinds of deals can you get from scalpers? Are there any other forums or websites where people exchange tickets or sell games from their season tickets? I am looking for the best way to find seats for a pretty good deal.
With 4 people, you can get a decent deal. For example, if the scalper is charging 20 per ticket, you can get him to give it to you for 60 (15/person). Plus, there are 30000 empty seats every night at the park. If you persist, the scalper will give in if you realize that he is going to lose money on 4 tickets without you. 4 is a lot of tickets and I'm sure the scalpers would love to unload 4 tickets. Last time, I bought 3 tickets for about $50 (section 201 against O's, an attractive opponent). He wanted $60, but I talked to another scalper (there are like 15 of them), and got a decent deal.
If it doesn't work out, you could always buy tickets from different sections and tell your party to come sit next to you because there is 30,000 empty seats. The ushers don't care as long as you aren't in one of the premium sections
