The New York Yankees sell the most expensive season tickets of all 30 MLB teams, according to a New York Post survey.

In the survey, the Post compared season ticket prices for seats in the lowest level near the foul pole with seats in the upper deck behind home plate in each ballpark.

Season tickets at Yankee Stadium cost $6,480 for a seat near the foul pole on the leftfield side (section 131) and $2,268 in the upper deck behind the plate (section 420B).

Yankees team president Randy Levine told the Post he did not think the price for season tickets was too rich.

“No, I don’t think those prices are too high,” Levine said. “The primary market for those seats are very, very strong and continue to be very, very strong.”

Only the Yankees, Giants ($2,075) and Phillies ($2,055) sell upper deck season tickets for more than $2,000.

The Chicago Cubs’ season tickets ranked second most expensive with foul pole seats costing $5,038 and upper deck seats costing $1,877.
