Prices on the resale market for Games 4 and 5 of the World Series in Chicago plummeted on Saturday morning after the?Cubs loss to the Indians on Friday and dropped more on Sunday morning after their second straight loss at Wrigley Field on Saturday. Lance Parrish Jersey .After the Cubs lost Game 4, the ticket market for Game 5 collapsed. List prices for the cheapest ticket fell to under $1,000 compared to just 48 hours before, when there wasnt a single Game 5 ticket listed on the resale market for less than $2,400.Ticket prices fell even further on Sunday. At 11 a.m. ET, nine hours before Game 5 begins, there were 445 tickets listed for under $1,000 on StubHub.When Game 3 ended, the cheapest seats to Games 4 and 5 were $1,900 and $2,400, respectively. By 6:15 p.m. ET on Saturday, just hours before the first pitch for Game 4, the cheapest ticket to the game on StubHub was $1,700, a rise from the early afternoon ($1,475).?The prices for Game 5 dropped even more precipitously because the loss assured that if the Cubs were to win the World Series, it wouldnt be done at home.?The median price paid for a Game 3 ticket on StubHub was $2,800 and that didnt include any sales in the six hours before the game. Because of a contract between the Cubs and StubHub, which has been in place for three seasons, the ticket reseller was forced to pull the tickets, meaning those selling on the site had to shift their tickets to other sites.Right before Game 3 began, StubHub announced it had struck a deal with the Cubs and MLB Advanced Media that would enable tickets to be sold on the site right up until game time.Prices for Games 4 and 5 havent just dropped on the low end.Box seats that were purchased on StubHub on Tuesday for Saturday nights game that sold for $9,500 can now be had for $4,500. On Friday, a fan paid $15,000 each for tickets in the front row behind the Cubs dugout for Sundays Game 5. Tickets just four rows behind those seats can now be had for $4,500.The average resale prices of tickets sold on StubHub are still records. The Game 4 average resale price is $3,100, while Game 5 is at $3,300 per ticket. In comparison, the average price for Games 1 and 2 in Cleveland was $1,000.

NEW YORK -- How do you follow winning Olympic gold at the Rio Olympics? How about a chance to see Hamilton on Broadway?The Tony Award-winning smash musical on Tuesday night welcomed the U.S. womens gymnastics team -- Simone Biles, Aly Raisman, Gabby Douglas, Madison Kocian and Laurie Hernandez -- who gave the show a standing ovation and greeted the cast onstage afterward at the Richard Rodgers Theatre.The gymnasts, dressed in skirts and rompers, sat together in Row G to take in Lin-Manuel Mirandas hip-hop-flavored biography about the first U.S. treasury secretary, a night that had athletic gold meeting theatrical gold.I thought you were amazing, Raisman told Tony Award-nominee Brandon Victor Dixon, who just happened to be making his debut appearance replacing Tony Award-winner Leslie Odom Jr. as Aaron Burr.Gymnastics is my favorite Olympic sport, hands-down. Since the days of Kim Zmeskal, Ive been about the U.S. gymnastics team. So, I love these ladies. Im so proud of them. I worship them. I think theyre amazing and I got so hyped when I heard they were in the audience tonight, Dixon said.The U.S. womens team won gold while also winning its second straight Olympic title and third overall.

Goldsberry and her fellow Schuyler sisters -- Lexi Lawson and Jasmine Cephas Jones -- then posed for a photo with the five athletes, their hands in the air as they riffed off a lyric in the show by shouting Work!The show has been celebrated for putting African-American, Asian and Latinos at the center of Americas birth and the U.S. Olympic team is a mix of races and ethnicities -- black, white, Latina, Jewish.Theyre just like tiny versions of us, said Okieriete Onaodowan, who plays both Hercules Mulligan and James Madison. Its amazing but its also remarkable what theyre doing, just to be able to perform and not choke under that pressure. At a young age, to be able to perform that way and keep your cool? Im totally impressed.The night before, the Broadway cast welcomed U.S. swimmer Maya DiRado, who won two golds, a silver and bronze at Rio. She brought both of her gold medals to the show to share with the cast.
