With the Dodgers on the verge of clinching the NL West tonight, they announced that they’ll begin selling playoff tickets on Friday.
It’s been a remarkable season for the Dodgers as they were 12 games under .500 as early as mid-June, before they went on a tear and jumped atop the NL West standings. According to Bill Shaikin of the LA Times, there will be individual tickets sold as well as discounts for season-ticket holders:
The prices for individual game tickets range from $30 to $160 for the division series, $65 to $190 for the National League Championship Series and $210 to $350 for the World Series. Season-ticket holders receive a discounted price. The Dodgers will sell tickets for division series and potential league championship series games on Friday, with tickets for potential World Series games available at a later date, team spokesman Steve Brener said.
As of now, the Dodgers wouldn’t have home field advantage to start the playoffs as they’d begin the NLDS against the Cardinals at Busch Stadium. However, they’re only one game behind St. Louis, while they’re just two games behind the Braves for the best record in the National League.
However, the Dodgers also announced that if you follow the Dodgers official Twitter account, you’ll receive tickets before the general public.
