The Red Sox start printing playoff tickets

Sep 15, 2009, 9:52 AM EDT

Well, kind of: they’re allowing people to register for a drawing for a chance to buy ALDS tickets as of noon today.  The results of the drawing will be next week.  The lucky winners will have the opportunity to pay $130 for field box and loge box seats, $100 for pavilion, $55 for the grandstand, $35 for the bleachers and $30 for standing room only. Plus $21 per ticket in processing and “convenience” fees.  Given that they’re doing this online, I wonder how much processing is really necessary, but such is the age in which we live.

I suppose the logistics of all of this requires that they get going early, but it is the kind of thing that makes me want to see the Rangers surge and the AL Wild Card race go down to the very last day.

UPDATE: The Rangers are apparently doing it too.  Bah. Go Mariners.

    You’d better check the Rangers’ website before you jump all over the Sox. Their ALDS tix are on sale as well.

    Craig, it seems like I see a story about this non-story every year. This isn’t really that big a deal. A team that might make the playoffs has to start to prepare for that contingency in advance. There’s no real harm in making sure things go smoothly if and when you make the playoffs. I hardly think the Sox are being presumptuous, risking jinxing themselves, or anything else really. Let’s move on.

    It has been over a week since you could register for the tigers playoff tickets.
