Need tickets?

Still hoping for spring training tickets? Karl E. Case, an economics professor at Wellesley College, gave it a try. His results were part of an article in Sunday’s Globe. An excerpt:

A few weeks ago, single-game spring training tickets went on sale on the Red Sox website. I will be in Fort Myers when the Red Sox play the Yankees March 12, so I gave it a try. Finding myself in their “virtual waiting room,” I sat at my desk for about half an hour hoping to get a couple of reserved seats at the face value of $21. By the time I got out of the virtual queue, the game was sold out. I immediately logged onto StubHub, where dozens of tickets were offered at prices ranging up to $300. Today section 119 is selling for $400 a ticket. Scalpers today are much quicker and more organized.
