Tampa Bay Rays playoff tickets are slated to go on sale to the general public starting at 9 a.m. today at raysbaseball.com.
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.
This weekend, the ticket-buying action shifts online.
Assuming any tickets for the division series home games are left after this weekend, they'll be available through all ticket outlets beginning at 9 a.m. Monday. Two years ago, during the Rays' first playoff appearance, tickets were snapped up before the outlets opened up for general sale.
Going through the Rays, however, isn't the only game in town. Check out sites such as stubhub.com, tampa-bay-rays-tickets.com and ticketmaster.com. But consider that you might have to pay a premium.
