Major League Baseball is selling 100 World Series tickets for $9 to students on a first-come-first-served basis.
The 2018 edition of the World Series, which started on October 23, is being played between the Boston Red Sox and the Los Angeles Dodgers.
The tickets are only available at a specific gate at Fenway Park, the Red Sox’s home ballpark, with sales desks opening up two hours prior to the game.
However, students are only able to begin queuing for their World Series tickets no earlier than five hours before the game.
Student identification is required for each purchase and fans will be required to enter the ballpark immediately after buying a ticket.

“I should be in class right now but technically I’m at the World Series,” one student told News 7. “Which is better? I’m weighing out the options. World Series or classes? World Series always comes out on top.”
The MLB’s 2018 World Series has already kicked off, with a potential Game 7 expected to be played on October 31.
