Playoff Tickets!!!!

Knew that'd get your attention.

Those of us who are season ticket holders got our playoff ticket invoices yesterday.

Money is due September 10, and as opposed to 1998 and 2001, when there were only three ticket levels (Box, Reserved [which included everything in the park except upper and lower boxes] and Standing Room), this year they are selling tickets for nine different levels (Club Box/Infield, Club Box/Outfield, Field Box/Infield, Field Box/Outfield, Terrace Box, Upper Box, Terrace Reserved, Bleachers, and Upper Reserved, same as the regular season).

Division series tickets range from $20-50, not much more than the "premium" regular season dates.

NLCS tickets range from $35-80. World Series tickets range from $60-175.

Dates are as follows:

NLDS: 9/30, 10/1, 10/3, 10/4, 10/5. Cubs would NOT have home field here as they will either be the 3rd seed division winner, or wild card (barring a total collapse by the Braves or Giants, who figure to be the #1 and #2 seeds).

NLCS: 10/7, 10/8, 10/10, 10/11, 10/12, 10/14, 10/15. Cubs could have the home field under the following scenario: they are the NL Central winner and win their series, and the wild card wins the other series.

World Series: 10/18, 10/19, 10/21, 10/22, 10/23, 10/25, 10/26 (the middle 3 would be the Cub home games)

Here's a thought which is pure speculation on my part: there will be fewer than 5,000 tickets per game available to the general public. Whatever is made available, I'd expect them to be sold in strips (you'd have to buy all ten games), possibly around September 13.
