With every victory, the Royals are creeping closer to ending the longest playoff drought in baseball. The Royals even have a magic number for the playoffs for the first time in 29 years. Yes, it seems as though the playoffs are actually going to happen.
Furthering that thought, the Royals have sent an e-mail to season ticket holders that playoff tickets are available. For a period of time, season ticket holders have an exclusive window to acquire Royals playoff tickets before the general public. The tickets range anywhere from $28 to $76 dollars for seats at field level, with Diamond Club seats costing from $118 to $179 per ticket for the divisional round or Wild Card play-in game. The BATS Crown Club seats are $345. Of course, the tickets increase in price the deeper the Royals get into the playoffs.
The Royals even have payment plans available to allow fans to purchase these tickets. If someone interested in the tickets is unable to make a payment in full, they can opt to have the payments come out in three installments from a credit card. Yes, the Royals are making it easy for their fans to be able to come out to Kauffman Stadium and cheer the Royals on for the playoffs.
Let’s review: Royals. Playoff. Tickets. Yes, that is correct, the Royals are selling playoff tickets already. Granted, they did the same last year, yet the hope that the Royals would somehow find a way to reach the postseason seemed farfetched at best. This year, however, the Royals not only lead their division, but they seem well on their way to ending their 29 year run of misery.
Granted, with 43 games left in the season, a lot could happen. Injuries, a poorly timed losing streak or the Detroit Tigers getting as white hot as the Royals have been could all be fatal to the Royals chances. Yet, as things stand right now, the Royals have the look and feel of a playoff team.
The Royals have made playoff tickets available for purchase. This time, it feels as though they will be more than just some novelty item – they could be used for an actual playoff game. Blue October is coming.
