The MLB is set for a huge game on Thursday night in the cornfields of Iowa as the Chicago White Sox and New York Yankees are playing the famous Field of Dreams game.
The players are excited, the fans are excited, and everybody is ready for the historic event. As it turns out, the game has made some sort of history and shattered prices for tickets.
Field of Dreams game is the most in-demand MLB regular season game for @VividSeats since 2009.
The average price for a sold ticket is $1,176.

Well, this isn't too surprising given the hype and anticipation of this game for the entire season, especially with two of the better teams in the American League squaring off against one another.
Still, over $1100 for a ticket is insane, and people are paying that to witness the unique opportunity. Of course, it helps to have good teams play in the game, but either way, the game is a historic one and something new for the MLB.
So far, it appears that the MLB would have to consider doing this again, given how successful everything has gone on every aspect of the matchup. Get ready, this historic matchup in the middle of Iowa is set to be a good one, and hopefully so for the high-paying fans in attendance on Thursday night.
Welcome to Iowa!
