CHICAGO (AP) – The frenzy among Chicago Cubs fans to snag pricey and scarce tickets to World Series games at Wrigley Field has now landed in divorce court.

Court documents obtained by The Associated Press from Cook County Circuit Court on Friday say a suburban mom this week submitted an “Emergency Petition For World Series Tickets” to see Game 5 Saturday against the Cleveland Indians. A judge’s order says the tickets for Saturday are held by Nancy Riddle’s estranged husband and fellow Cubs fan John Riddle.

Judge Marya Nega ruled after in-court arguments that the husband can keep the tickets for himself and the couple’s 12-year-old son but should pay for a new ticket for Nancy Riddle in a “comparable” section to his. The cheapest available tickets start at around $3,000.
