(Newser) – The average fan might need a loan to snap up one of the thousands of tickets available for tonight’s Game 6 of the World Series at Yankee Stadium. The cheapest seats are going for $550 online, the Daily News reports, but the online average is above $1,000. Resale site StubHub assumes the game will be its highest grossing ever—considering that the record is now held by Game 2, the last one played in NYC.
