With the Texas Rangers second consecutive trip to the World Series in as many years, the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex is rapidly becoming baseball country, at least for now.
As of Monday afternoon on the internet reselling site StubHub, the cheapest tickets for Game 3 on Saturday were for standing room only ones priced at $296.
To get a seat at the Ballpark in Arlington for the the biggest game in franchise history, Rangers fans will need to spend at least $405. At the other end of the price spectrum, sellers are asking for thousands of dollars for seats along the infield lines.
As the week goes on, prices for Games 3 and 4 in Texas will be affected by the results of Games 1 and 2 in St. Louis. However, it's unclear which direction they will go: will fans be more motivated to come out to the Ballpark if the Rangers are in position to clinch the franchise's first ever world championship or if they are caught in a dogfight between a St. Louis team that has over-performed expectations through the first two rounds of the playoffs?
