Ticket price for last Jeter home game doubled after his retirement announcement
"If you spent hundreds to see Mariano Rivera's last game at Yankee Stadium, expect to pay more to see Derek Jeter's.
Ticket prices for Jeter's regular-season finale in The Bronx look to well outpace those of Rivera's last year, according to a spokesman for TiqIQ, a secondary market ticket aggregate.
The average price for the Yankees' Sept. 25 game against Baltimore is around $619 — up more than 104 percent from the approximately $304 it would have cost before Jeter announced he'd retire after the 2014 season via Facebook Wednesday, according to TiqIQ.
Compare that to the average price of about $237 for a ticket to Rivera's last game at the stadium. That price was actually much lower than the $467 peak it reached when the closer announced his retirement on March 9, 2013." Yankees 2014 season schedule Tweet Stumbleupon StumbleUpon
