If you were lucky enough to be in Arlington for any of the three home games they hosted against versus the Detroit Tigers during the American League Championship Series, you may be a little shocked. The average price for those three games COMBINED is $554, and Game 3 of the World Series is $256 more (46% higher)! Comparing games one to one, the first home game in the World Series series is 289% more expensive than the most expensive game of the ALCS.

The prices by this year’s numbers seem high, but they’re actually cheaper than the average prices from last year. Before the Rangers had clinched a World Series birth, the same span of 2010 games (3-5), cost about a third more than this year’s set. Game 5 prices have actually dropped $610, or 45%.

Does a second straight visit to the Fall Classic carry less excitement for fans? Is attendance in Texas currently affected by other factors besides the disappointment from last year’s loss? Will the Rangers’ Game 2 victory to bring the series back to Arlington tied 1-1 lead to a late spike in prices if the home team closes in on a championship?
