StubHub before and after Jayson Werth’s Game 4 walk-off home run

Around the time the Washington Nationals’ Jayson Werth was rounding the bases after depositing a Game 4, 9th inning, walk-off home run into the St. Louis Cardinals bullpen, I checked StubHub for tickets to Game 5, which will decide who moves on to face the San Francisco Giants in the National League Championship Series. That StubHub search showed there were 7,258 tickets available through the “fan-to-fan ticket marketplace” with Standing Room Only tickets starting at $50, as shown in the first screen capture below.

Just over 40 minutes later, there were nearly 2,000 fewer tickets available on StubHub and, as the screen capture below shows, the lowest priced Standing Room Only ticket was going for $83. With one swing of the bat, Werth has stimulated the DC economy, on StubHub and beyond.
