2011 World Series ticket prices: Rangers vs. Cardinals

View Comments(0)

After more than six months and nearly 2,500 games, Major League Baseball is finally down to its final two teams: the Texas Rangers vs. St. Louis Cardinals. The two teams will battle it out for the Commissioner’s Trophy and the right to be called 2011 MLB Champions.

Both teams that made it to the Fall Classic are certainly not strangers to the event. This is the 18th time the Cardinals will play in the World Series (having won 10 of them), while it will be only the second time for the Rangers, with the other time happening just last season. Thanks to the National League winning the All-Star Game, the Cardinals will have the advantage of starting the series at Busch Stadium in St. Louis.

Most of the country has seemed less-than-enthused at the prospect of the match-up, but that hasn't stopped fans in Texas from paying an average of $569 for tickets to the three possible games at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, with Game 5 carrying the highest average at $604. In St. Louis, Cardinals fans have paid slightly less for their possible four games with an average of $434, although the few tickets already sold for a possible Game 7 have an average price of $965.

Compared to last season, the average prices are relatively similar for the Rangers home games, but overall are down slightly, from $581 to $569. If Texas is able to perform well in the first two games in St. Louis, the 2011 prices could jump based on increased demand.

The series is set to begin on Wednesday, October 19, with pitchers C.J. Wilson and Chris Carpenter slated to make the start.
