Play ball? No chance at £3,000 per ticket! Fans left frustrated with Major League Baseball games in London next year being touted on secondary ticketing sites at inflated prices

Tickets for the Major League Baseball games in London next year are already being touted for over £3,000 each, despite going on sale on Monday for less than a tenth of the price.
Regular season games are being held in Europe for the first time ever next year, when the Boston Red Sox play their bitter rivals the New York Yankees at the London Stadium on 29 and 30 June.
However, MLB fans were left frustrated when the first round of tickets for the highly-anticipated matches went on sale on Monday morning, and were very quickly available on secondary ticketing sites at vastly inflated prices.

Several fans complained on social media about the ‘complete shambles’, with many highlighting that it would actually be cheaper to fly to the US and watch a game there than it would be to attend the London games.
One ticket for the game on 29 June is being sold on StubHub for £3,037, even though the face value for that seat was £270.
And the cheapest ticket currently available on the site is £178, for a seat that would have originally cost £45-60.
General sale tickets go on sale on Thursday morning.
