Baltimore Orioles Prepare For Playoff Ticket Sales
BALTIMORE (WJZ)— The Baltimore Orioles haven’t gotten this far since 1997. But the organization is making plans to sell playoff tickets for the first time in 15 years.
A spokesman for the Orioles confirmed that invoices will be sent out Thursday to season-ticket holders for the 2012 playoffs. Single-game playoff tickets for non-season ticket holders will go on sale in mid-September.
The Orioles currently hold the second wild card spot in the American League.
Two wild card teams will play a one-game playoff with the winner gaining entry into the divisional round.
Prime tickets for regular season games sell between $11 for standing room and $99 for field box.
Tickets for the wild card and divisional round games cost about the same as a prime regular season game. Championship series tickets would cost about 50 percent more than prime regular season games, and World Series tickets could cost fans three times as much as regular season prime matchups.
Fans with full season plans have the option to buy tickets for all of the potential 10 home playoff games at Camden Yards.
The Orioles still have 40 games remaining before the start of the postseason on Oct. 5.
Fans will be refunded their ticket price if the Orioles are eliminated from the playoffs or the money can be applied to 2013 season tickets.
