Tickets still available for ALCS, World Series tickets top out at $15,000

Royals fans looking to take in the team’s first-in-a-generation home ALCS game tomorrow are in luck: tickets are still available at face value on the team’s website, and secondary market prices remain reasonable as well.  But World Series tickets are a different story, with premium seats selling for as much as $15,000.

The smattering of tickets still available include outfield and standing room only tickets, as well as some more desirable seats scattered throughout the park.

A team spokesman says if Monday’s game is rained out, all tickets labeled “Game One” will be honored when the first home ALCS game is eventually played.

Major League Baseball’s commissioner will make the final decision on whether and how deeply to postpone Monday’s game if it rains as expected, in consultation with the teams, broadcast partners and meteorologists.

Fans looking to score World Series tickets face a taller task. The Royals planned to only make about ten thousand tickets available for purchase by the general public, and buyers will be selected by a lottery process that closed on Friday.

The secondary market on StubHub.com shows standing room only tickets which sell for $100 in the ALCS starting at $700. Crown Club seats directly behind home plate list there for more than $15,000 per seat.

Plus parking.
