A limited number of Opening Day tickets will be available. This marks the first time in several years in which the Dodgers have made all regular season home games available for purchase on a single-game basis.

The Dodgers' 2013 individual game pricing starts at $8 per ticket for One-Star games, $10 per ticket for Two-Star games, $20 for Three-Star games, and $30 per ticket for Four-Star games. Auto Gates A (Sunset) and E (Stadium Way) will open at 6:30 a.m. and fans are encouraged to come to Dodger Stadium to purchase single game tickets. Fans will receive wristbands as they enter Lot G to determine purchase order. Fans must obtain a wristband by 8:30 a.m. for a chance to purchase tickets for Opening Day. Opening Day at Dodger Stadium is Monday, April 1 at 1:10 p.m. versus the defending World Champion San Francisco Giants.

What's it all mean? Let's go to True Blue LA for the breakdown:

The tiers of games at Dodger Stadium is broken down as follows:

  • Four-star (6 games): Tickets ranging from $30 to $160
  • Three-star (26 games): $20 to $120
  • Two-star (33 games): $10 to $115
  • One-star (17 games): $8 to $100

The six four-star games are Apr. 1 against the Giants, July 30-31 against the Yankees, and Aug. 23-25 against the Red Sox.

The three-star games include five games against the Giants, including Apr. 3 during the opening series. There are eight Saturday home games in the three-star games, one Friday game (Sept. 13 vs. San Francisco) and one Sunday contest (May 12 against the Marlins). All 11 bobblehead games are three-star games.

The two-star contests include 11 Friday games, 10 Sunday games, and four Saturday games.

One of the one-star games is the lone home exhibition game against the Angels on Friday, Mar. 29. Another one-star game is Sunday, Sept. 1 against the Padres. The remaining one-star games are either Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday.

If a 4-star game is only 1-star in quality, can I get a refund for the difference?

Even if it conversely would result in having to cough up an extra twenty if they squeak one out against the Marlins?

Stub-Hub minimum price (as agreed with MLB) is now $6.

I shed a tier for this new pricing scheme.
