If you're wanting to take the family to catch Major League Baseball's (MLB) tribute to the Negro Leagues in Birmingham, you might want to get in touch with your loan officer.

On June 20, MLB will host the St. Louis Cardinals and San Francisco Giants at legendary Rickwood Field for its "Field of Dreams" game.

The game is scheduled around the Juneteenth holiday and "will include a variety of activities as a tribute to the Negro Leagues and its greatest living player – Hall of Famer, Giants Legend, Birmingham native and Birmingham Black Barons player Willie Mays," according to the City of Birmingham.

The Cardinals and Giants will be highlighting the Negro Leagues' histories of both St. Louis and San Francisco with their jerseys.

The game and many of the festivities will air on television, but those wanting to watch the game at America's oldest ballpark, which has a seating capacity of only 10,800, should be prepared to spend big, as tickets are scarce.

MLB recently held a lottery for Alabama residents to enter for a chance to buy a set amount of tickets at a reasonable price, but those who missed out will not be as lucky as the lottery winners.

The lowest price for just a single ticket on the top ticket purchasing platforms is $439 on StubHub. The highest on that platform goes for $8,337 for one ticket. Two tickets purchased together start at $438 per seat and go up to $8,337 each.

Ticketmaster lists its lowest singular ticket for $621, but if two tickets are purchased together, they are listed starting as low as $470 each. A general admission ticket sells for $3,630, while two tickets purchased together have each ticket selling for $1,012 each. A singular seat goes for $2,045.

On VividSeats, a singular ticket starts as low as $573 each, while two tickets purchased together drop the per ticket price to as low as $489 each. A general admission ticket goes for $3,471 or $3,612. Two tickets purchased together can be as high as $4,330 per ticket, while a single ticket by itself sells for as high as $1,986 each.

One ticket on SeatGeek by itself starts as low as $510 and goes as high as $1,878. Two tickets together start at $527 each and can sell as high as $2,532 per ticket. General admission tickets sell for $3,707 per ticket.

As for those wanting to take three or more to the ballpark, tickets all sitting together are quite limited.

The game will begin at 6 p.m. on June 20.
