If you want to go to a ballgame, you’ve got a few options for where you get your tickets.

You can buy them at the box office or online, or from a third-party seller — or you can go to the ballpark and buy them from the people outside the stadium. New research from ASU finds that might be where you get the best deal.

Gabel Taggart is a doctoral student in the ASU School of Public Affairs and a senior research fellow in the university’s Center for Organizational Research and Design. He led data collection and co-authored a paper on ticket scalpers.
