Want to See World Series at Wrigley? It Will Cost Thousands

CHICAGO (AP) — Fans hoping to see the Cubs play in the World Series for the first time since 1945 are finding a seat could cost more than what their grandparents paid for their houses.

A look at ticket-selling sites on the internet Monday reveals ticket owners are willing to part with theirs for thousands or even tens of thousands of dollars. Ticket brokers say fans are starting to spend as much as $12,000.

Fans with more creativity than money are making some unusual offers.

Ticket owners who like to ski might be interested in the offer from a Southern California woman for a week in her mountain cabin for a couple of tickets. A Portland, Oregon, firefighter is offering a Pacific Northwest tour in exchange for a ticket.
