Clevelanders were outraged at the exorbitant price of $20 being charged for 1997 World Series parking.

In what looks lie a bargain today, rates around Jacobs Field were going up, up, up. WEWS reporter Bill Younkin finds prices so high, a mobile ATM was being set up in one of the lots.

Next up in the video player, legendary T-shirt maker Daffy Dan shows off his mock up of a Cleveland Indians World Series Championship shirt. Dan has his colors and artwork all set awaiting a game 7 win.

Finally in our player, Bill Younkin again in consumer watchdog mode, goes looking for scalpers and finds business a bit slow. He uses a pay phone, how 90s, and uses a newspaper classified section, how 20th century, to see want brokers are getting for World Series tickets. Frankly, those prices look steep even today.
