I never thought I would see the day when Spring Training games would command heavy markup of face value.

Looking at the White Sox games on StubHub already the one Cubs game in Tuscon is priced from $18 - $247


The Red Sox lead this insanity as usual (http://www.stubhub.com/boston-red-sox-spring-training/) with seats for a game with NYY going for as high as $500.

Good article on scalping and supply and demand (http://www.boston.com/news/globe/editorial_opinion/oped/articles/2007/01/21/the_value_of_scalping/) from yesterdays Boston Globe

If they get one idiot to pay that price, they win...

And people complain about athletes making too much money!

As you said it, supply meets demand and in this case the demand is ridiculous.
