    Demand is up for Yankees World Series tickets. Via Neil Best -

    The Yankees have won the World Series at home only three times in the past half century – and never, of course, at the new Yankee Stadium.

    So it is no surprise that fans eager to witness history have been driving up the price of tickets to Game 6 since it became clear the Phillies would win Monday and force the teams to return to the Bronx.

    Until Monday, the average sales price for Game 6 on StubHub.com was $814. The average for tickets sold yesterday was $1,044 as of late morning.

    Other sites saw comparable price rises. The game was on its way to beating Game 2 as the highest-grossing event in StubHub history.

    Might prices fall as game time approaches Wednesday night? Not necessarily. That did happen for Game 1, on a misty night. For Game 2, prices rose on game day.

    Just imagine if there’s a Game Seven. The last time the Yankees played a Game Seven in the World Series at home? October 10, 1957. Needless to say, that was not a good day.

    The last time the Yankees played a Game Seven in the World Series at home where New York won the game? October 6, 1947. Yeah, nineteen-forty-seven.

    Whoooa, that was a looooong time agooooo….eh?

      The chance to see the Yanks win a 7th Game at home, for the 1st time in 62 years, and yet, you tell me it isn’t worth losing Game 6, with all the attendant aggravation?

      Oh, all right, dammit, you’re right, it isn’t.

      But, geez, 5 rows behind the Yankee dugout…aw, crap. :(
