The Texas Rangers are winding down their sixth straight losing season. However, there are interest drawing fans to the team's final series of the season against the New York Yankees and Aaron Judge. Fox 4 reports that Judge has recorded 61 home runs this season, tying the American League record, and Texas fans are willing to show up for the opportunity to witness history.

Fox 4 reports that StubHub is currently offering the cheapest ticket for the Rangers-Yankees game for $30 in left field. Tickets are listed for as much as $795. Other tickets are being sold for $248. The two teams are playing a 4 game series Monday to Wednesday. All the games could see a spike in ticket prices in the outfield.

Fox 4 is reporting that it could be a good investment attending this final series. SCP Auctions told Fox 4, that the 62nd home run ball could be valued over $500,000 and his final home run of the year could be worth more than $1 million. The value of these history making baseballs is high because many within the league and baseball fans consider this to be the "real" home run record in the MLB because Barry Bonds, Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa and those who hit over 61 in a season, were all connected to the infamous steroid scandals.

Judge hit his 61st home run last week against the Toronto Blue Jays, but it didn't reach the seats. The Blue Jays bullpen returned the historic home run ball to Judge. The Rangers series with the Yankees begins tonight at 6:05 p.m.
