On the World Series and Apple Pay

Chris Welch, writing for The Verge:

MasterCard and MLB Advanced Media have announced that contactless payments are now supported at Kauffman Stadium and AT&T Park. They're the first professional sports venues to roll out support for Apple Pay, which became widely available to consumers with yesterday's launch of iOS 8.1. [...] Come next season, MasterCard says fans will be able to buy tickets for individual games with Apple Pay when ordering through Tickets.com. MLB is promising Apple Pay support for its own At the Ballpark app, too. I noticed FOX ran a lot of ads for MasterCard-Pay during last night's Game 1. My iPhone 6 is running iOS 8.1 and I have my credit card information saved in Passbook, but I have yet to use Pay myself. I love using my phone to pay at Starbucks, so this should be fun too.
