Ticket Prices Soar for Jeter's Return Home

NEW YORK - APRIL 16:  A fan looks for tickets before the opening day game between the Cleveland Indians and the New York Yankees at the new Yankee Stadium on April 16, 2009 in the Bronx borough of New York City.

Derek Jeter's in the lineup tonight with the chance to inch closer to the 3,000 hit mark, which is good news for Yankee fans who want him to reach the milestone at home. Those who want to see him do it in person, however, are going to have to pay a premium if they haven't already scored tickets. According to, tickets for Saturday's game against the Rays are averaging $165 on the secondary market, up from $77 last week. And tickets for Friday night's game are averaging $165, up 25 percent since yesterday. Rounding out the weekend: Tickets for Sunday's series finale are averaging $158, while seats for tomorrow's series opener are — with good reason, probably — a relative bargain at $138. [Bloomberg]
