Ticket plans are an­nounced for pos­si­ble post­sea­son dates

Baltimore Sun - - BASEBALL - By Jon Me­oli jon.me­oli@balt­sun.com twit­ter.com/JonMe­oli

With six games re­main­ing in the reg­u­lar sea­son and a 11⁄ game cush­ion above the chas­ing Detroit Tigers for the fi­nal Amer­i­can League wild-card spot, the Orioles out­lined ticket plans for the post­sea­son.

As was the case in 2014, fans who place a de­posit on a full- or par­tial-sea­son ticket pack­age for the 2017 sea­son are guar­an­teed a cor­re­spond­ing ticket to one play­off game in each round, with the pos­si­ble wild-card game next Tues­day re­served for the higher com­mit­ments.

Fans who make a de­posit of at least $500 per seat on a 29-game ticket pack­age or $1,000 per seat for an 81-game pack­age are guar­an­teed a chance to buy tick­ets to at least one game in each play­off round, from the wild-card game to the World Se­ries.

For those who place a min­i­mum de­posit of $250 per seat on a 13-game plan, the club will guar­an­tee the chance to buy a ticket to one game in ev­ery round be­gin­ning with the Amer­i­can League Di­vi­sion Se­ries.

De­posits can be made at www.orioles.com/de­posits.

Those who aren’t ready to tie their play­off tick­ets to a com­mit­ment next year can buy tick­ets be­gin­ning Thurs­day at noon by vis­it­ing www.orioles.com/post­sea­son. The team says those tick­ets are “ex­pected to be ex­tremely lim­ited, and tick­ets — which will be pri­mar­ily scat­tered sin­gle seats, lim­ited view seat­ing, and stand­ing room only — will sell out quickly.”

With the wild-card route the only one left for the Orioles to get back into the play­offs, they could host the one-game play­off on Tues­day, Oct. 4. If they ad­vance, they’d host Game 3 of the ALDS on Sun­day, Oct. 9, likely a night game since the Ravens host the Wash­ing­ton Red­skins at 1 p.m. that Sun­day and the two sta­di­ums share park­ing. Game 4, if nec­es­sary, would be the fol­low­ing day.
