Rockies playoff tickets tough to come by
The Denver Post
A benevolent buddy is probably the only way you’ll score a face-value ticket at this point to the first two rounds of the Major League Baseball playoffs.
That’s because the Colorado Rockies and the seven other teams in the playoffs aligned with an online lottery registration system that stopped taking applications last month.
You still have a shot at World Series tickets, though, as online registrations for all teams is open until Oct. 15. The Rockies’ website is http://www.ColoradoRockies.com, and the first World Series game in a National League city is set for Oct. 31.
More than 60,000 people have registered for Rockies tickets, team officials said. Those who registered for the Division or League Championship Series are already in the draw for World Series tickets.
The Rockies’ move to the MLB-controlled online lottery is a welcome departure from the ticket fiasco that marred the 2007 postseason.
“This is better control of the volume and a better purchasing experience for the fans,” Rockies spokesman Jay Alves said.
