The city of Cleveland – which went 52 years without a major pro sports title before the Cavaliers snapped the drought in June – is suddenly flush with athletic success.
After the Indians clinched the American League pennant with a 3-0 win over the Toronto Blue Jays on Wednesday, the Tribe ensured they will open Game 1 of the World Series next Tuesday night at Progressive Field. Immediately next door, the Cavaliers are set to tip off the NBA’s regular season, raising their championship banner to the rafters of Quicken Loans Arena.
The conflict has sent secondary-market Cavs tickets plummeting in price. Lower-bowl, center-court seats are now as low as $1,000 on sites like StubHub, whereas similar seats were priced as high as $5,000 in August, according to ESPN’s Darren Rovell.
