The Chicago White Sox, who won their first World Series in 88 years last year, raised prices only 2.5 percent, even though world champions generally see a big jump in demand the season after they win the title. In 2005, the defending champ Boston Red Sox raised prices 9.3 percent, even though it already had the league's most expensive tickets.
