End-of-Season Baseball Deals at Parks Nationwide

As baseball season winds down, the races for the last few playoff spots are sure to intensify. Travelzoo can get you in on the action with an offer for discounted tickets at 12 ballparks during the season’s final month.

This slate features home games with baseball’s best team, the Atlanta Braves who are on the precipice of clinching a playoff spot, and several other contenders including the Yankees, Cardinals and Nationals. Be sure to check out these Local Deals featuring marquee September matchups:

  • Yankees vs. Orioles, Aug. 30- Sept. 1, Yankee Stadium: Sitting five games out of the last American League wild-card spot, the Bronx Bombers have their work cut out for them in the coming weeks. They can begin their upward climb with a series win against Baltimore, one of four teams ahead of New York in the wild card chase.
  • Angels vs. Rays, Sept. 3 & 5; Angels vs. A’s, Sept. 25, Angel Stadium: In spite of an MVP-caliber season from Mike Trout, the Angels’ October prospects are bleak. The Halos, however, are going to have an impact on the playoff races. In the season’s final month, the two current AL wild-card leaders – the A’s and Rays – will head to Anaheim, giving the Angels a chance to play the role of spoiler.  
  • Giants vs. Dodgers, Sept. 24-26, AT&T Park: With a rash of injuries and bad luck, the defending World Series champion Giants aren’t in the playoff picture. That fact is oh so irrelevant when their Southern California rivals come to town. Led by rookie sensation Yasiel Puig, the Dodgers look primed for their first World Series appearance in 25 years.
  • Cardinals vs. Nationals, Sept. 23-26, Busch Stadium: With the Reds and Pirates on their heels, St. Louis is the present front-runner in a three-team race for the NL Central crown. These matchups against the Nationals in the final week of the season could have a major impact on the Cards’ quest for their eighth Central Division title.
  • Nationals vs. Phillies, Sept. 13-15, Nationals Park: Winners of eight of their last nine contests, the Nats have played their way into the edge of the playoff picture. They’ll have to win just about every series from here on out, including these mid-September matchups against Philly, to make up a 6.5 game deficit in the NL wild-card standings.
