Derek Jeter Fenway finale outselling ring ceremony game

Published Add your comment

The news that Derek Jeter will retire at the end of the 2014 season has already circled the globe.

Eagle-eyed fans quickly realised that his last regular-season game will be played on 28th September at Fenway Park. As a New York Yankees legend, the tickets for the tie quickly grew astronomically.

Interestingly, tickets for the game are believed to be harder to get a hold of than the opening game at Fenway Park.

Because the Red Sox won the World Series in 2013 they will receive their championship rings on the opening day and is likely to be quite to occasion for the Boston faithful.

It is therefore quite a surprise to hear that Jeter's Fenway finale is now the hotter ticket.

"This last Jeter game is now a tougher ticket than the Opening Day ring ceremony," Jim Holzman, CEO and president of Boston-based Ace Tickets, told ESPN. "Now that's a story."

It's the same story for Jeter's final home game with $15 bleacher tickets appearing on ticket websites for over $300. The game against the Orioles is scheduled for 25th September.

"This is unprecedented," ticket broker Lance Patania told "The game is usually giveaway if the Yankees aren't in the (playoff) hunt."
