Expert: Ticket brokers could lose millions on Jeter's last home game
Secondary market ticket sellers could incur losses of $12.5 million if Thursday's game between the New York Yankees and Baltimore Orioles in New York -- which is expected to be star shortstop Derek Jeter's final home game -- is canceled, according to an expert who spoke to the New York Daily News.
“It would be a disaster for brokers if this game is rained out and never made up,” said Connor Gregoire of SeatGeek.com.
“Brokers will lose all the profits they would have otherwise made on this, the most expensive regular season ticket in MLB history.
As of Wednesday afternoon, the average sale price for a ticket was $642. Sellers would have to return all the money paid for tickets if the game is canceled.
It is expected to rain throughout the day. The game is scheduled to begin at 7:05 p.m.
