Yankees ALDS Game 5 is Crazy Expensive
Three Game 5s: ALDS is most expensive by far
The Yanks will square off against the Tigers tonight in the Bronx, and the two remaining NLDS series are slated to end tomorrow night with their respective Game 5s in Milwaukee and Philadelphia. The secondary ticket market is seeing incredibly high asking prices across the board for these series, but tonight’s Yankees tickets are far and away the most expensive amongst the other series’ MLB tickets.
The get-in price for the NLDS games are $68 in Milwaukee and $118 in Philadelphia, but Yanks fans will have to shell out over $150 a ticket for a seat in the nosebleed-ish right field Grandstand. In terms of average price, the Yankees-Tigers Game 5 has an even bigger lead – $606 vs $314 (Cards-Phillies) and $167 (D’Backs-Brewers).
These three series are still anyone’s game, but with Yankees fans paying top dollar to see their team, the pressure is definitely on for the Bronx Bombers.
