07:25 AM ET 10.30 | For the mere chance of watching the Red Sox make history at home, just getting in the building on Wednesday night is going to cost someone plenty. After winning the 2004 World Series in St. Louis and the 2007 Fall Classic in Denver, the Sox could celebrate a title in front of a packed Fenway, and that has Boston fans breaking the bank for a chance to see the game in person. As of 2 p.m. on Tuesday, the average price for a Game 6 ticket is $2,186, according to TiqIq.com, making Wednesday night's contest one of the most expensive sporting events in Boston's history. The cheapest seat in the house for Game 6, a right field standing-room ticket, costs $849 on Stubhub.com. The most expensive ticket listed on Stubhub is a field box seat listed at an incredible $42,079.

I wouldn't go planning the parade just yet Red Sox fans. I remember the discussion on Boston talk radio about what route the vistory parade should follow when the Bruins went up 2-1 on the Blackhawks a few months back...
