The talk in Boston prior to the Red Sox-Dodgers series was how to treat Manny Ramirez. Should he be booed?  Cheered?  In the end, there were mixed reactions.  But nonetheless, fans paid more on the secondary ticket market to see Manny and the Dodgers play the Sox at Fenway Park.  

 

We looked at the Dodgers ticket prices at Fenway this weekend and it is pretty interesting:

The Dodgers versus the Red Sox is a top matchup, so we would expect ticket prices to be above average. Even so, it is interesting to speculate the degree to which Manny Ramirez’s return to Fenway impacted this jump as well. Note also that the series trends are in-line with our previous analysis on MLB Ticket Prices by Day and Time. Please comment below with your thoughts.
