BOSTON (CBS) — The Red Sox may make the World Series. They may not. In the meantime, the team is putting tickets up for sale on Friday morning, just in case the Sox pull off two straight victories in Houston this weekend.

While the sale of tickets for a series that hasn’t been secured just yet may cause the most superstitious of fans to break into a cold sweat, the sale is likely a necessary step, just in case Fenway Park has to host Game 1 on Tuesday night. (The Red Sox would get home-field advantage if they reach the World Series to face the Braves; if they reach the World Series and face the Dodgers, then Game 1 would be in Los Angeles.)

The real interesting part of this story, then, is the price tag accompanying the World Series tickets. As one might expect, the prices are quite high for the games that would be at Fenway Park. Here’s the price list:

Field Box (17-70, Rows A-E): $556
Field Box (17-70, Rows F-M): $531

That is, quite obviously, a lot of cake. But World Series games apparently bring World Series prices. And if the Red Sox pull off victories in Games 6 and 7, then people will surely be dropping a whole lot of cash to see it in person.
