Tickets for Game 6 of the World Series already cost more than any baseball game in history, and the bad news for those without a pair is that they’re only getting more expensive.
Data from local and national ticket brokers and analysts agree: Game 6 of the World Series between the Boston Red Sox and St. Louis Cardinals, set for an 8:07 p.m. ET start at Fenway Park on Wednesday night, will be the most expensive ticket ever for a ballgame. From $900 standing-room-only stubs to a $10,000-plus seats close to the action, Red Sox fans are snapping up a dwindling inventory at record prices in hopes they’ll witness something the city hasn’t seen in nearly a century.
“The Red Sox have a chance to win a World Series in front of their home crowd for the first time since 1918,” said Jim Holzman, president of Boston-based Ace Ticket. “Boston has the best baseball fans there are, and they want to be there to see this.”
