With the playoff race almost over, here's a peek at the secondary ticket market leaderboard:
The big winners this week are the Boston Red Sox, whose prices increased 125% from $46.62 on September 20th to a stratospheric $105.24, coinciding with the Sox' final shot at a playoff berth. Expect ticket prices to drop over the next few days, as the Yankees and Devil Rays clinched their playoff berths yesterday, crushing the Red Sox' post-season hopes.
At the other end of price spectrum...
The White Sox and the Reds are the only two teams in the bottom 10 with a winning percentage above .500, and the Pittsburgh Pirates win the consolation prize with $11.43 tickets and a league-low .357 (56-101).
