It's amazing what an unexpected World Series appearance does for ticket sales.

By the numbers: The Arizona Diamondbacks have seen the biggest increase in StubHub ticket sales of any major league team from last season, based on cumulative sales through March 15.

  • During that time period the D-Backs saw a 300% increase in sales, according to StubHub's MLB preview.
  • Spring training ticket sales for the D-Backs nearly doubled from last year as well.

Between the lines: That growth even surpassed the Los Angeles Dodgers, unquestionably the most hyped team in the majors after their offseason acquisition of star Shohei Ohtani.

Yes, but: Despite being the defending National League champs, Arizona didn't crack the top 10 in overall ticket demand.

  • The top spot went to the Dodgers, the first time since 2018 that honor didn't go to the New York Yankees.

Zoom in: There's demand to see the D-Backs on the road too.

  • StubHub's list of top 10 in-demand games, not including home openers, has the D-Backs' April 6 road game against the Atlanta Braves at ninth.

The big picture: Across the majors, sales are up 60% compared with last season.

  • StubHub is crediting the spike to international interest, particularly in the Dodgers.
