Price is right for those buying tix in Tampa

That average price for a World Series ticket in Tampa continues to drop.

StubHub's report released around noon today noted the average price had dropped $49 in the past 24 hours, down to $412. Average prices for tickets sold to tonight's game are $406; average prices for tomorrow night's game are down to $401. Get-in prices are as low as $100. The report noted that about 2,000 tickets remain for tonight's game.

Prices to the three games in Philly are averaging $855, from a high of $868 (Game 3 on Saturday) to a low of $832 (Game 5 on Monday).

Remember, the Phillies will be holding a viewing party at the Great Plaza at Penn's Landing tonight, between Market and Walnuts streets. The event is free. Gates will open at 6 p.m., with the game to start at 8:29 p.m. on the 17-foot-by-27-foot LED screen that is set up for the occasion.

Snacks, nonalcoholic beverages and beer will be avilable for purchase. Unlike the last time this was done on Oct. 12, attendees will not be able to bring coolers, alcoholic beverages or glass containers onto the premises. Fans are urged to bring their own blankets and chairs, and to get there early, since capacity will be aorund 2,000.

There will NOT be a viewing party for Game 2 on Thursday night, but viewing parties for Game 6 next Wednesday, Oct. 29, and Game 7 next Thursday, Oct. 30, are likely. The site and scope of those likely won't be announced until next Tuesday morning.
