It’s do-or-die for the Yankees, who face elimination at the hands of the Texas Rangers. Apparently, their fans think the Yankees are more likely to die than do.
Ticket prices for Game 5, which begins at 4 p.m. Wednesday, have fallen, with some fans selling their tickets below face value. The average price for resale has fallen to $127, down from $249 before Tuesday’s 10-3 loss to the Rangers, according to FanSnap.com, a ticket comparison shopping site.
Tickets in the 300 deck in left field are being offered for resale for as little as $46, $2 below their face value in the regular season. Seats in Section 121, which is behind home plate, were being resold for $281, compared with their $300 face value in the regular season.
Imagine that, tickets to a Yankees home ALCS Game going for prices less than face value in the regular season?
Of course, besides the factor of fans thinking this series is toast, today being a 4 pm ET start, and the high-priced-nature of Yankees tickets, in general, have something to do with this as well…
