BOSTON (CBS) — If you’re planning on attending a few Red Sox games during the 2017 season, be prepared to pay a little bit more for your tickets.

Ticket prices for next season will rise by an average of 2.9 percent, the Red Sox announced on Wednesday, with seats closest to the field seeing the most change.

Prices will rise between $1 and $5 in the following sections: Field Box, Loge Box, Pavilion Box, Pavilion Reserved, Grandstand, Outfield Grandstand (Rows 1-10), Right Field Box, Right Field Roof Box and Terrace, Bleachers, and Upper Bleachers.

Prices in other seating areas will remain unchanged, including the Budweiser Right Field Roof Deck, Grandstand (Sections 13-27 & 28-31, Rows 11-18), Outfield Grandstand (Rows 11-19), and all Standing Room.

“We appreciate the steadfast commitment of our loyal fans and hope to reward their dedication by fielding a winning team that plays deep into October each season.” Red Sox President Sam Kennedy said in a release. “Our desire to bring another World Series Championship to Boston is as strong as ever, and the contribution and dedication of our fans are what allow us to remain competitive each and every year.”

The Red Sox will continue to offer special reduced pricing for students, clergy, veterans, and active duty members of the military, with tickets for high school and college students available for $9.

The lowest priced ticket to a game at Fenway Park during the 2017 season will be $10.

It’s worth noting that those $10 tickets pegged as the lowest are only for seats a mile away from home plate and situated in what feels like a little dungeon under the jumbotron, with no nearby bathrooms or concessions. And they are only at the $10 price point for a tiny handful of undesirable games, climbing up to $25 and $30 for most others.
