As Game 5 of the ALDS between the Orioles and Yankees approached early Friday afternoon, ticket prices on the secondary market remained extremely volatile.

With relatively short notice that the game would be played at 5:07 p.m. on a weekday -- thanks to the Nationals' victory over the Cardinals Thursday -- and a massive supply from ticketholders, prices plummeted in the hours after the Yankees' Game 4 loss.

By mid-morning Friday, more than 11,000 tickets were available on, the official secondary market partner of Major League Baseball, with asking prices as low as $15.

But as of 12:45 p.m., the number of tickets on the site had fallen to 5,259, with a low asking price of $29.97 for seats in the Grandstand Outfield, section 407.

Some tickets still were available on the Yankees' official website. A search asking for one "best available" ticket turned up a seat in the Champions Suite for $512.
