Tickets for a potential divisional tie-breaker Thursday between the Orioles and New York Yankees will go on sale Tuesday on Orioles.com, the club announced.
Tickets will first be available to season ticket holders between 10 a.m. and noon at a discount rate applicable only during that time window. Between noon and 2 p.m., tie-breaker tickets will become available to fans in the MASN viewing area, which includes Maryland, Virginia, Washington and parts of North Carolina, Pennsylvania and West Virginia. This regional sale is an attempt to pack the stadium with Orioles fans rather than make the tickets available to buyers in the New York area.
Tickets will go on sale to the general public at 2 p.m. The game would be broadcast on TBS, though Major League Baseball has yet to announce a potential start time.
Full and 29-game season-ticket holders already had a chance to buy tickets for the potential game if they bought an overall postseason package.
If the Orioles, tied with the Yankees for the American League East lead with three games to go, should lose a tie-breaker Thursday, they would then face a wild card showdown on Friday. That game could be in Baltimore, Oakland or Arlington, Texas.Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
