The Boston Red Sox are dead and gone from the playoff race, but there’s a reason to go to Fenway Park: Manny Ramirez returns with the Chicago White Sox for a three-game set starting Friday.
Ticket prices are up 14 percent since the Windy City club traded for the former Red Sox slugger. While Friday night’s average price is just $88 – well below the season average of $119 – Sunday’s affair will cost $139 per seat. That’s a lot of money to watch two bad baseball teams play a meaningless game in September. (Yes, the White Sox are only 3.5 games out, but they aren’t catching Minnesota.)
For Bostonians, the opportunity to boo Manny is worth the extra cost, apparently. Increased ticket prices. Just Manny being Manny.
