Tickets to watch the New York Yankees play the Boston Red Sox in the Big Apple on Sunday are soaring due to an increase in demand to see Aaron Judge try to make history with his 61st home run of the season, as he attempts to tie and overtake Roger Maris’ American League record.

Maris, who played six years for the Yankees, is best known for setting a new MLB single-season home run record with 61 home runs in 1961; the record remained unbroken until 1998 and still stands as the American League record.

And according to Vivid Seats, which prides itself as one of the most cost-efficient ticketing services in the sports and entertainment industry, the average cost to buy a ticket for tonight game has nearly tripled in the last week, from $115 per seat on Monday to anywhere ranging $250-$330 per seat on Sunday. 

Tickets right by the Yankees diamond range from $500-$1,000, as prices for seats located towards the grandstand infield section of Yankees Stadium are going up for hundreds of dollars.

The most expensive ticket for Sunday night’s game in the Bronx was thought to be on sale for nearly a whopping $9,000 on Vivid Seats, according to a DailyMail.com page visit on Sunday.

Gametime – another ticketing company known for flash sales of last-minute deals – has also seen its prices go up by nearly double last week, NBC New York reported. 

The average cost for a ticket last week was set a $119, but as of Sunday, prices have been elevated to over $200 if Yankees fan don’t want to sit in nosebleeds, which are still on sale for a minimum of $20 or more. 

Bob Nightengale, of USA Today, reported last week that outfield tickets at Yankees Stadium had gone up by 41 percent for the home team’s encounter against the Pittsburgh Pirates. 

Seat Geek has 26 listings for access to boxes and suites next to the Bronx’s diamond for $734 each. Deluxe prices on the website has some tickets on sale for $992 each. 

On Ticketmaster, the average price for tickets for Sunday’s game is $183 with the lowest fee set at $54 while many spots are up for grabs in the $300 benchmark.

StubHub – ‘the world’s top destination for ticket buyers and resellers,’ according to the company’s official website – is promoting resales for tickets in sections around the catcher’s area for more than $2,000 each. 

Seating near or right behind the Yankees bullpen are being sold for more than $700 each and roughly $2,300 each at most.   

Star batter Aaron Judge just needs one more homer to equal Roger Maris’ all-time record. The 30-year-old is currently stuck on 60 and went 0 for 3 with two strikeouts and a walk in a 7-5 win over Boston at Yankee Stadium on Saturday. 

Tickets for last night’s victory were also excessively expensive, as many thought Judge’s magical moment would’ve happened then. Prices varied similarly to Sunday’s game. 

Judge has gone scoreless in the last four games as he is itching to tie Maris' record. Pictured: Judge celebrating with Gleyber Torres (right) after Wednesday's 14-2 win against the Pittsburgh Pirates

However, the batter still remains on pace to his 64.4 home runs this season.  The Yankees have 11 games remaining the regular season.

Sunday’s game will start at 7:08 p.m. ET on ESPN. Rookie right-hander Brayan Bello is set to start for Boston. Rain is in the forecast.
