One of the best deals in baseball, or any major league sports event for that matter, is the Oakland Athletics’ $2 Wednesdays at the Oakland Coliseum. Presented by BART, the $2 ticket price scores you seats in the Plaza Outfield and Plaza Reserved sections every Wednesday during the 2012 regular season. Normally priced $8 to $17, the ticket savings is considerable and makes going to the ballgame affordable for everyone.
