Kris Bryant sends Cubs tickets soaring

SHARE Kris Bryant sends Cubs tickets soaring

A warm Friday afternoon at Wrigley Field is usually a tough ticket. But a chance to see Kris Bryant debut with the first-place Cubs? Priceless.

Several online ticket brokers, including StubHub, are sold out. The ones who do have tickets are offering premium seats at twice face-value. The Cubs are still showing some single tickets available in the upper deck.

Craigslist and eBay have some ticket offers for today but, again, prices are well over face.

When word came last night that Bryant would debut today, tickets were quickly gobbled up, and it seems few are willing to part with a chance to see the much-ballyhooed prospect’s first game.

If you do happen to score tickets, remember to get one of these on your way in:
