    Face value for tickets was around $400, but apparently, the average paid by those in attendance was closer to $1500!

    Spent a year in New Jersey and my American mates were big Yankees fans so went to quite a few games with them. Loved the match day experience, drinking beers in the sun. At first my knowledge of the game was zero so didn’t quite enjoy the action but after a few games I got into more and more. What changed for me was when the play offs began - it was like a different sport. Unlike the regular season (180+ games?) where a defeat isn’t the end of the world as you play again the next day, the play offs game were tense and exciting where every pitch was scrutinised. Best of 7 games in the “semi final” and “final” meant huge and constant coverage as the week went on.

    Agreed. Playoff baseball is a whole different animal. Losing in the regular season, especially before September is very much a case, "oh well, try again tomorrow". The excitement in postseason games is palpable.

    Yep sorry I was listening to a podcast the other day about the 1969 'miracle Mets' the date stuck in my head
