The lords of MLB have decreed that the most expensive tickets for the World Series will be priced at $250. I assume that teams that have seats that already cost more than $250 apiece will be allowed to charge a commensurate increase, judging from this line "Premium seats, which include waiter service, cost even more."
At least when you're at Shea Stadium sitting through a 45-minute long half inning when Steve Trachsel is pitching, at least you can feel like you are getting your money's worth.
And if you pay $250 to be inside the park, you don't have to listen to Joe Buck and Tim McCarver or watch endless ads for some new Fox TV series. However, all of the new series on Fox will debut before the playoffs. So, I don't know what will be the most likely ad to become a catch phrase.
"His father is the district attorney!"
"What are you some kind of teacher?"
"You're risking a patient's life!"
If the "War at Home" is chosen as the series to publicize, I may just listen to the whole postseason on radio.
