ARLINGTON (CBSDFW.COM) – There are only a few hours left to register for the Texas Rangers online ticket lottery. And if you want tickets to American League Championship Series this may be your best shot.
Interest in the Rangers has steadily grown since their 2010 trip to the World Series.
The number of season ticket holders has increased, which means there’s a lower chance of fans getting their hands on American League Divisional Series tickets.
“The season ticket holders obviously it’s part of their incentive to buy season tickets, having the opportunity to purchase post-game is a big part of that, so we have a smaller number,” explained Texas Rangers media relations representative John Blake.
While the number of tickets available is down, Blake wants to assure fans the team is holding back several thousand good seats.
Blake said the ticket lottery is best and most fair for Rangers fans.
“If you put all your tickets on sale at the box office and people have to wait in line for two days or whatever, we just don’t feel that’s an equitable way to do it,” he said.
Once an individual signs up on the Texas Rangers website there’s no need to re-register, everyone signed up is eligible for all lotteries going forward. Anyone wanting to sign up for this lottery has until 5 p.m. Friday, September 16.
The Texas Rangers will contact all lottery winners. Tickets go on sale Saturday, September 17 at 9 a.m.
