"Everybody form a line"
By Anthony Castrovince/MLB.com
The Indians have sold more than 9,000 tickets to Sunday’s game against Stephen Strasburg and the Nationals in the past week, including 3,000 since Thursday morning.
The secondary market for Sunday’s game has also heated up. According to data from SeatGeek.com, there is a 22.2 percent increase for the Strasburg start over the season average at Progressive Field. The average transaction price for Strasburg’s start is $14.98 higher than tonight’s game and $7.72 higher than Saturday’s game.
With Carlos Santana making his debut, the Indians are hopeful for a heavy walkup crowd at the ballpark tonight.
On Saturday, there will be no Strasburg and probably no Santana (Mike Redmond will likely catch Fausto Carmona), but at least you’ve got that Shin-Soo Choo bobblehead.
