Fan Buys World Series Tickets For $18
DAVID GREENE, HOST:
Good morning. I'm David Greene. Here in LA, World Series tickets are going for more than $700 a seat - well, not a seat. That's for standing room only, which makes Jordan Benedict's story amazing. He went on StubHub and found Game 2 tickets for nine bucks. He bought them, but then he called StubHub to ask if there was some mistake.
Jordan, what were you thinking?
StubHub said yeah, mistake - they took back the tickets. But then they offered him a pair of different seats, and they honored that price. It's MORNING EDITION.
