While the average price at both venues constitutes a down payment, San Franciscans are paying 14% more than Rangers fans.  As as you can see in the chart below, this is trend carried over from the Divisional Series and LCS, where Giants fans paid 28% and 18% more than the fans in Arlington. The Giants were the most active adopter of dynamic pricing in 2010, and perhaps the high prices are the result of a fan base that is better conditioned to pay more for big games.

If the Giants can bring the Golden City its first baseball crown, the $1,500 average price will feel like money well spent.  If the Rangers prevail, Baseball Torture in Frisco will move beyond the psychic to the economic.
