I'm sure this wasn't the plan going into the 2013 season after making all those high-profile acquisitions, but the Blue Jays have announced in an email to previous subscribers that they will not be increasing the price of ticket packages for the 2014 season. They've already announced that season ticket prices will remain unchanged.
Flex Pack tickets will be on sale starting Thursday, October 10, 2013 and apparently if you order over $500 worth of ticket packages before December 6, you will get a $50 Flex Pack Card good for concessions and merchandise during the regular season. If you would like good seats for Opening Day tickets (April 4, 7:07 pm vs. Yankees) this would be a good time to grab them.
At this time, it is not known whether the "Ballpark Pass" (or an equivalent 80-game pass) would be available for the 2014 season--that package is generally announced in the new year. This past season sales of the Ballpark Pass was largely limited to previous pass holders, and each account was limited to two passes each. It was thought that the Blue Jays were trying to phase out the discounted passes, so its availability for the 2014 season is not a sure thing. I hope that he big wigs at 1 Blue Jays Way would understand that the $95 passes are a great way to get butts in seats, and most importantly, in lines to get beer and concessions.
Information on the 2014 Flex Packs are not yet available on BlueJays.com but since they are unchanged from last year here are the packages available.

The 40-, 15-, and 10-game Flex Packs give you one seat per game, and you have until March 1 (at least this was the arrangement in 2013) to choose your games. If you choose to buy the 20-ticket voucher pack, you pay a little more per game but you get a much more flexibility: you can redeem up to six tickets per game (except for select games like Opening Day and Canada Day where they cap it at four tickets) and you get until July 31 to choose the games you want. I was very happy with the 20-ticket voucher for the 200-level outfield I bought last season.
Next to getting season tickets, these ticket packages are the best way to guarantee Opening Night seats. And, like I wrote last December, you will get priority in getting postseason tickets.

I'm just a fan who wants to you save a buck or two, and I want to see the stadium as full as possible every single game.
