Tickets to World Series Game 6 most expensive in history of Fall Classic
If you have a ticket to see Game 6 of Major League Baseball's World Series Wednesday night in Boston's Fenway Park, you are a lucky fan. If not, well, prepare to shell out the biggest bucks in the history of the game if you want to be in attendance.
The game between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Boston Red Sox has the potential to be the first World Series clincher in front of a home crowd in Boston for the Red Sox since 1918. Based on numbers from ticket aggregator TiqIQ, the average price for a secondary-market ticket to the matchup at Fenway Park was $1,844. At the time of writing, tickets on popular secondhand seller StubHub were ranging from $948 for standing room only to over $12,000 for seats near the field.
"This is the highest-demand ticket in Boston history, and I believe it is the highest-demand ticket in baseball history," said Jim Holzman, president of Ace Ticket, told the Wall Street Journal.
If Boston, who leads the series 3 games to 2, doesn't win tonight, tickets for a Game 7 at Fenway Thursday may yield even higher numbers.
