24/7 Wall Street: Jeter's Finale Highlights Top Games Of The 2nd Half

July 16, 2014

Earlier today we published this article on 247wallst.com breaking down the top 5 most expensive MLB tickets for the 2nd half of the season. No surprises here, Derek Jeter's finale in the Bronx takes the top spot, while his final game in Fenway is the 2nd most expensive. Here's some of the article:

9/25/14 – Baltimore Orioles at New York Yankees | Avg. Price: $517.53 | Get-in: $157 The Yankees have struggled this season following an offseason jam-packed with big-name acquisitions. At just 47-47 through the All-Star break, the Yankees find themselves five games out of first place, where the Orioles sit atop the AL East at 52-42. Despite their mediocrity, however, they will host the most expensive game of the second half against the first place Orioles on September 25 at Yankee Stadium. This will be the last regular season home game on the New York Yankees schedule and will be the last home game of Derek Jeter’s career if the Yankees do not make the playoffs.
9/28/14 – New York Yankees at Boston Red Sox | Avg. Price: $478.54 | Get-in: $115 Following their championship season last year, the Boston Red Sox have failed to put together any momentum over this season’s first half. With both offensive woes and poor pitching, the Red Sox find themselves in the basement of the AL East at a dismal 43-52. While playoff hopes are virtually nonexistent, the team will host the second highest-priced game of the second half against the divisional rival Yankees on September 28. The price again is Jeter-driven as this will be the last regular season game of his career and the last time he will play at Fenway Park in the Yankees-Red Sox rivalry.
