Orioles sell out tickets for possible wild card, ALDS games

Tickets are sold out for possible


home games in the wild-card and

American League

Division Series rounds of the playoffs, a club spokesman said Monday.

The news came as the Orioles returned to Baltimore to begin their final homestand of the season with a one-game lead for the top spot in the AL wild-card race.

Tickets for the wild card and Games 1 and 2 of the division series were gone within an hour after they went on sale to the public Saturday morning, said Orioles spokesman Greg Bader. Bader said tickets for a third division series game -- which would occur only if the Orioles win the

American League East

-- sold out by early afternoon Saturday.

Season ticket holders already had a chance to purchase seats for potential American League Championship Series and

World Series

games, but Bader said tickets for those rounds would probably not go on sale to the public until after the Orioles secure a postseason berth.


He added that a few more tickets could go on sale for the wild card and divisional series if the visiting team and

Major League Baseball

do not use their full allotments. Bader said fans should check regularly to see if more tickets become available.
