Rays playoff tickets on sale at 9 a.m. Saturday at

Tampa Bay Rays playoff tickets are slated to go on sale to the general public starting at 9 a.m. today at

But as of late Friday, tickets for the first two American League division series home games were gone save for some single and obstructed view seats, according to Rays spokesman Rick Vaughn.

Last week, the Rays set aside up to 2,500 tickets for fans willing to buy a $100 membership to the Playoff Access Club. Vaughn said the club was pleased with the early-bird opportunity, but he didn't release specific numbers.

The Rays also doled out some tickets to fans through a random drawing Friday. Other ticket-seekers, meanwhile, have already been able to secure the option of buying postseason tickets after agreeing to reserve season tickets for 2011.
