MLB PostseasonWith MLB enjoying the attention of the one-game playoff between the White Sox and Twins for the AL Central crown, and the first day of the Division Series in the books, tickets are exceptionally difficult for fans to get if they haven’t already got them. Secondary ticket company RazorGator reports that, on average, the price for a playoff game is running $248 through their online system. Tickets to the Chicago Cubs-Los Angeles Dodgers series lead the way at an average of $367 per ticket.

Bargain hunting? RazorGator reports that tickets for the Rays series at Tropicana Field are the lowest average price at $146.

Tickets to the Philadelphia Phillies-Milwaukee Brewers series are averaging $266 per ticket while seats to see the Los Angeles Angels-Boston Red Sox series are averaging $215. Average ticket prices for the first round of the baseball playoffs are up 115 percent this year, selling for an average of $115 last year.
