After a well-timed trip to the DL, Derek Jeter is now on pace to record his historic 3000th hit at Yankee Stadium during this weekend's four game home stand against the rival Tampa Bay Rays. Below is some interesting ticket price data, courtesy of our friends at TiqIQ:
As you can see, fans are betting that Jeter will get the historic hit at the stadium on Thursday (based on the "get in" price). Of course, prices will flucuate greatly with every hit as fans place their bets on which game he will hit the historic milestone. Every one of these game is above the Yankees average ticket price this season which is $92.37. As he gets closer TiqIQ predicts that prices will continue to rise as there will be a major premium to pay to see the Captain get 3,000.
