The Detroit Tigers went to the World Series in 2012.
GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM) - We don't know who the Detroit Tigers will play in the World Series, but one thing is certain -- the Tigers will play in Detroit this coming weekend. If you're thinking about going to the games, it will cost you.
The tickets for all three games are officially sold out on the Detroit Tigers website.
If you find an online broker you could stand inside Comerica Park for a little over $400. One of the most popular online brokers is Stub Hub. On Monday afternoon, the price for a standing-room-only ticket was $409. If you want a seat and a good view, expect to pay anything from $965 to $2,000.
The cheap part of the World Series experience is with the travel. Driving from Grand Rapids to Detroit is 161 miles and will take 2.5 hours, and gas for a round trip will cost about $52. It will cost more if you add in food, drinks, and maybe a souvenir.
Considering what a trip to St. Louis or San Francisco would cost, the Detroit road trip is cheap.
It is 447 miles from Grand Rapids to St. Louis, and driving it could take a little less than eight hours. The cost of gasoline to drive there would be about $144 round-trip.
Getting to San Francisco is even more expensive and time-consuming. If you drove, you would have to leave Monday night or Tuesday morning and drive straight through. It is a 2,293 mile trip, which would take you 36 hours and cost you $740 in gas.
The most logical option would be to catch a flight. The average price from Grand Rapids to San Francisco is $555. There's also a non-stop flight for $808.
We found hotel rooms available in both St. Louis and San Francisco when we checked on Monday, though that could change by Tuesday.
