With the World Series heading to Los Angeles for Game 3 on Friday, the Red Sox hold a 2-0 series lead and demand for tickets at Dodger Stadium is sliding. According to TicketIQ.com, the average asking price for the first game at Chavez Ravine is down 28% since the end of Game 2, making it the second cheapest average since TicketIQ.com began tracking data in 2011. The current average asking price is $884, better only than the $763 in Detroit in 2012.
The last time the Los Angeles Dodgers and Boston Red Sox met in the World Series, Babe Ruth and Casey Stengel were on the rosters, television had not yet been invented, there were only 16 Major League Baseball teams and the Dodgers weren't even in Los Angeles. What a difference a century makes.
