Extortionate prices for a stadium not built for anything but athletics.

Limited availability now for “cheap” seats.
Saturday from £87- 340.
Sunday from £65-340.

Not a purpose built baseball stadium so not sure what kind of view you get from the cheaper seats.

Been fortunate to be to three MLB games: Marlins v Rockies in 1993, Marlins v Braves in 1996 and Devilrays v Red Sox in 2004 when Boston had that cracking team.

Wouldn't be paying anything like that for this - crazy money - but the novelty of it and the fact it's two of the biggest teams means they will shift no problem.

A former work colleague and long time friend was the official Public Address Announcer for the Red Sox between 97 and 02.

Prior to that in the 80’s he was chief statistician and official scorer for the NE Patriots.

A real sports buff and a fine gentleman.
Well done Ed!

I’m going to the Sunday game. 3 of us heading down. Paid nowhere near the prices quoted above. Think it was 50 a head and that wasn’t the bottom price. Had no issues whatsoever getting them either - just logged on on the day and bought them. Stadium looks great and I’m sure plenty beer will be consumed.

Yankee’s winning 17-6 at bottom of fifth so only half way through. Already played over 3 hours which is about the average for a complete game.

Must be a lot of sore bums and thirsty fans. It’s about 35c!

Record number of runs in any game between them is 31 so London may yet have a place in baseball history.

They are certainly putting on a slugfest - any big plays, grand slam for example ?

9 runs for Yankees in top of the 7th to now lead 11-4 despite no home run.

Red Sox pitching is poor as is fielding.
Reigning World SeriesChamps on the rack.
