Abstract: The empirical evidence supporting the impact that second degree price discrimination has on a firm’s revenue has received little attention. The present research examines ticket data from Major League Baseball from 1990 through 2010. Estimating a two-staged least squares model, we find neither price discrimination variable has an impact on team revenues. However, we find that both of these price discrimination variables impact revenues when examining different facility types. We discuss the impact on the role that price behavior and venues have on price dispersion.
