After making the playoffs for the first time since 2009, you should expect to pay more for Rockies season tickets in 2018.

Colorado Rockies owner Dick Monfort announced a "modest price increase for 2018" in a letter to season ticket holders on Monday. I guess we should have seen it coming.

Monfort says:

We understand that no one wants to pay more, however, our prices continue to be some of the lowest in baseball.

According to 9 News, he says the price increase will help the Rockies sign and retain players that can help the team return to the postseason.

The Colorado Rockies 2018 Home Opener is on Friday, April 6 against the Atlanta Braves.
