Prices for Game 1 fell leading up to the first pitch
Blame it on the weather reports. The average ticket price on the secondary market for seats at the first game fell from $1,525 on Oct. 19 to $756 on game day, according to figures provided by TiqIQ.
Ace Ticket founder Jim Holzman said fear of bad weather at Fenway Park pushed down ticket prices. Hours before the game, Ace Ticket had listings for seats beginning at $349 for Game 1. Another site, TicketMarket.com, had tickets prices beginning at $282.
And though the rain did not materialize, it was a chilly night at the park.
