CINCINNATI — Dire weather forecasts hanging over the All-Star Game helped drive down costs, but still left the Cincinnati game with among the highest-priced tickets for baseball’s midsummer game in recent years.

Austin, Texas-based TicketCity reports a final median sale price of $467, tumbling from $536 last weekend. The online service’s figures show that was higher than $449 for the game at New York’s Citi Field in 2013, and the $410 median price for last year’s game in Minnesota.

The New York-based online ticket marketplace SeatGeek reports that the average resale ticket price was $609, dropping from $669 just two days before the Tuesday night game. That final average was below SeatGeek’s average resale price of $643 for the 2013 game.

Storms passed through hours before the game, which drew 43,656 spectators.
