Baseball: Yankees v Red Sox game in London a best-seller: StubHub

(Reuters) - Major League Baseball’s first-ever game in London featuring world champion Boston Red Sox and rival New York Yankees is the best-selling game of the 2019 regular season, ticket seller StubHub said on Thursday.

Following matchups in Mexico and Japan in recent years, the league is making its first foray into Europe with hopes of expanding its international reach with the help of its two most-storied franchises.

“The appeal of MLB to a global audience continues to grow, and the overwhelming response for the rivalry match-up between the Yankees and Red Sox in London certainly proves that the sport has fans worldwide,” said Jill Krimmel, a general manager at StubHub.

Mind you, a test of who the real fans are would have been to have the Marlins and Orioles play against each other….

Biometric scanning is coming to the ballpark. It’s a really bad idea.

A consideration of new approaches in baseball ticketing- anyone here with knowledge on the subject matter that can offer feedback on this?

Brewers trying to keep rival Cubs fans out of Miller Park again

The Milwaukee Brewers have made it clear: They would prefer the least amount of Chicago Cubs fans to fill Miller Park as possible.

In a statement released Wednesday, the Brewers announced presale tickets for their 10 home dates against the Cubs, tickets that will only initially be made available to residents of Wisconsin.

“If last season’s Game 163 taught us anything, it’s that every single game matters - especially in a rivalry like this. And, while we don’t dislike all Cubs fans, we just really prefer when Miller Park is packed to the brim with Brewers faithful,” the team’s statement read.

Rumors that the Brewers are plotting to have the Hiawatha Service shut down on game days is currently unproven.

He got Brewers playoff tickets in the mail that didn’t belong to him. What he did with them results in felony theft charge.

WAUKESHA - The sale of ill-gotten, high-priced tickets to a Brewers playoff game could cost a local man his freedom, if the courts ultimately confirm he was caught stealing.

Eddie Patlan, 34, of Waukesha is accused of selling 2018 Milwaukee Brewers playoff tickets valued at nearly $7,000 after he mistakenly received them in the mail at his residence.

Patlan faces one felony count of theft of movable property worth between $5,000 and $10,000, which carries a maximum sentence of six years in prison and a $10,000 fine, if he is convicted.

College students line up for a shot at $9 World Series tickets

The cold and rain never bothered college students anyways — especially if there’s a World Series ticket in it for them.

Major League Baseball and the Boston Red Sox partnered this postseason, offering 100 student tickets for every postseason game for a measly $9.

The catch?

Why were my students never this ambitious?
