Alex Rodriguez will play his final game on Friday night at Yankee Stadium, drawing a drastic increase in ticket sales.

Alex Rodriguez’s final game will certainly be one of the more anticipated and hyped events of the year at Yankee Stadium. Consequently, ticket prices and overall event value will see an extraordinary bump.

As seen by Vivid Seats, a secondary ticket marketplace, the median single ticket price leaped from $39 to $161 following the announcement, producing an incredible 313-percent jump. As stated by the platform, the prices are as of 7:45 am this morning.

A-Rod, 41, will walk away from the Bronx and baseball as a whole with a home run total just shy of 700. However, there is the obvious opportunity for an exciting exit. The designated hitter will likely receive four cracks at number 697 in the ballgame.

For two teams — Yankees and Rays — in a role of admiration in the AL East, this is quite the publicized game.
