M-E Little League to be Recognized at Wrigley Field During World Series
Tonight is game 1 of the World Series between Cleveland and Chicago. It's the first time in history that both teams in the World Series haven't won the title in over 50 years. The Indians won it in 1948 and the Cubs in 1908.
Ticket prices will be the highest in World Series history. According to TicketIQ, tickets for tonight's series opener is almost $4,000 in Cleveland. However that's a bargain compared to what it'll cost to get into Wrigley Field for games 3,4 and 5.
Right now, the asking price is around $7,200. Can you imagine how much it'll be if the Cubs have a chance to win it all at home? By comparison, the average ticket price for the last four Super Bowls was $4,500.
There's a group of kids in the Southern Tier that will be paying less...a lot less. It's none other then our very own Little League World Series Champion, Maine-Endwell Spartans.
They'll be on hand for game four in Chicago. They'll be recognized before the first pitch. How cool would that be if they are on hand when the Cubs (or the Indians) win it all.
The players and coaches will be flown out on Friday. Is that an excused absence? On Saturday, they'll be a part of the MLB Play Ball program. Congrats boys and enjoy your time in the Windy City. Maybe you're the answer to the Cubbie curse.
First pitch on Saturday will be at 8:08 pm on FOX 40.
