    If anyone challenges your baseball knowledge you'll obviously have previously smashed a baseball two miles or so out of the ground?

    The only disappointment was it was over so quickly. The celebrations at the end were epic.

    United we stand here....

    What the hell are MLBUK thinking with their pricing structure for the MLB London series? Cheapest tickets are £35 and they may as well be in Hyde Park.

    Nothing in the bottom tier is under £200 (aside from the obstructed view seats in centre field!).

    How NOT to attract a large crowd and grow the future fanbase of the game. You set the arena, you bring 2 of the biggest teams in the MLB over for a rivalry match, you hype it up years in advance with pre-events in Hyde Park, Regents Street etc and then you ****ing price everyone out of going! Sheer stupidity.

    Not really a surprise though S mate. Think they are overestimating the demand for Baseball.

    Apparently I'm flying over for it all paid so...

    How much is a ticket for an IS game these days (haven't been since the Jets were here). Can't be much cheaper than £35.

    I'm not sure of the demand either. They would definitely sold out a one off game and could probably charged what they want but having the 2 games together will effect the ticket sales. The way the baseball schedule works they can't do anything about it though.

    I'm still surprised the Redsox would give up 2 home games against the Yankees. Must be getting something out of it. Not even getting the publicity either as anything I've seen about it is all about the Yankees.

    Think we are still going

    I would love to go to one of these games in London, but not as much as Iíd like to go to one in America.

    By all accounts, the ticket sales yesterday were an absolute shambles. People who pre-registered didn't receive codes, Ticketmaster's system just kept spinning around and around. For many who did get in, the cheapest tickets they could access were £180+, with some signing in only to see £290 and £320 tickets available.

    Also, every single ticket had a £20 service fee from TM (in addition to a £1.80 handling fee).

    Imagine for a second that a family of four wanted to go to this game and sit in the lower tier of the stadium for a decent matchday experience? 4 * 320 for the tickets, plus 80 for the service charge...£1365 for a family of four to go to a baseball game...and that doesn't include the cost of getting there, possible accommodation and food, merch etc.

    If you wanted a child's ticket, they were only available in the Category 8 or 9 seats (the cheap seats). If you wanted to take your kid to any other area of the stadium, you were paying the price of an adult.

    And guess what happened to most of the cheap seats? Bought up by touts and appeared promptly on StubHub merely minutes later - one of them was a 4000% markup!

    MLBUK and Ticketmaster should be taking to task for how they've handled the entire thing. Disgraceful first foray into a European market.
