Nats Ticket System Cracked

But! The team says it was able to void the ill-gotten tickets.

With standing-room tickets for the World Series at Nationals Park starting around $1,100 on Stubhub as of today—and seats behind home plate going for around $3,000—they’re the hottest tickets in town. Some were almost literally hot.

Someone apparently hacked into the Nationals’ ticketing system and made off with a bunch of tickets. But not for long. According to a Washington Nationals spokesperson: “We can confirm that fraudulent activity was detected in the ticketing system. It was discovered quickly and immediate action was taken. Any ticket that was obtained fraudulently was voided. We then reclaimed those seats and put them back into our system for fans to purchase. No personal information was breached. As you know, high-profile events such as the World Series are often targets for this type of activity.”

I wonder what happens to the fans who bought the stolen tickets who are now holding worthless “paper”?

I have a hard time feeling too sorry for anyone with $1100 or $3000 to waste on a ####### baseball ticket, I don't care for what game.
