Now that the Twins are marching ever closer to finishing 2015 with a winning record for the first time since 2010, the front office informed season-ticket holders this week that prices for some seats in 2016 are increasing ever so slightly.

Many of the most expensive season-ticket packages are going up by a buck or two per game, while packages for nearly all of the middle- to lower-priced sections are staying the same.

The exceptions: Pricey Legends Club packages are holding steady, while a full season of bargain-basement field-view seating (top deck, down the right-field line) is rising by a $1 per game to $972 for 81 dates.

The top-of-the-heap Champions Club seats, a few hundred right behind home plate, are roughly $19,000 to nearly $24,000 for this season. The Twins website does not list those 2016 prices yet. At the next rung, dugout box seats will run $5,994 for a full season, up from $5,832.

The nudge northward for some season-ticket packages breaks a string of four consecutive years of no increases.
