Skeeters' Tickets Are Expensive Buy with Roger Clemens Set to Pitch Saturday
Tickets to see Roger Clemens pitch will cost you hundreds.
No, these prices are not to see Clemens in the 1990s, or even Clemens in the early-aughts. That's the cost of seeing a 50-year-old former baseball player throw against some scrubs.
Rick Chandler of Off the Bench spotted some disturbing prices in regards to this Saturday's Sugar Land Skeeters' game, the contest that will feature Clemens back on the bump.
As you can see from this eBay listing for the game against the Bridgeport Bluefish, there is a good amount of Grassland and Standing Room Only tickets, for exorbitant fees that is.
As you can see, you are not without some choices. You can plunk down $100 on some general admission seats, or pay in the upwards of 500-600 bucks to get real up and close to an old man throwing a baseball.
ESPN's Darren Rovell has this news via Twitter that the prices are not just relegated to eBay.
$9 Standing Room Only tickets sold by the Sugarland Skeeters to Saturday’s Roger Clemens start now going for $75 to $100 on StubHub.— darren rovell (@darrenrovell) August 21, 2012
All of this for a pitcher who was great...once. It would be cheaper to head to Las Vegas and see Pete Rose in a chair signing autographs, and slightly more exciting.
Here is a video of Clemens throwing off a mound recently.
Wow, he throws straight.
Excuse me while I lose my mind over a man who should be off golfing but is instead holding onto the last vestiges of a controversial career.
I tell you what you do. Take a few bills from the bank account, burn them, and then go watch footage of Jamie Moyer warming up.
It will save you a trip to Texas.
