Derek+Jeter+Texas+Rangers+v+New+York+Yankees+AcY2P8bq6oIl Rangers Tickets Well Above Season Average To See Jeters Final Series In Arlington

Sitting 24.5 games back in the AL West, the Texas Rangers will host the New York Yankees for three games at Globe Life Park in Arlington this week. The Rangers are having a forgettable year after five consecutive winning seasons. The Yankees, who are just four games behind the first place Orioles in the AL East, will hope to gain ground against the lowly Rangers this week. This will be the last time this season the Yankees appear on the Texas Rangers schedule at home, slightly bumping up secondary market ticket prices for the final time Derek Jeter will be in Arlington.

While the season average for Texas Rangers tickets is $51.48 on the secondary market, each game of the series will have an average price above that number. The series as a whole will be 55.7% above the season average.

Martinez will make his second start since returning from the disabled list after a left side injury and is just 1-6 with a 4.73 ERA on the season. McCarthy has had two stellar outings for the Yankees, going 2-0 with a 1.45 ERA in pinstripes since his July 6 acquisition.

7/30 – Hiroki Kuroda vs Colby Lewis | Avg. Price: $93.37 | Get-in Price: $14
