CLEVELAND– Tribe fans buying tickets to the World Series watch parties experienced issues Monday afternoon.

Tickets to the parties at Progressive Field in Cleveland went on sale at noon for $5 each. Minutes later, the Cleveland Indians posted the organization was working to fix an issue charging customers high fees.

One fan told FOX 8 News she bought four tickets and her total ended up being $240.40.

The problem was corrected in a few minutes and the team said people will get a refund within 24 hours.

The watch parties for Game 3 and Game 4 are Friday, Oct. 28 and Saturday, Oct. 29, respectively. Gates open at 7 p.m. Seating is general admission.
