Can't Wait for Chip Caray to Opine About the AMAZING Fans in Phoenix
D-Backs say 8K tickets available for NLCS
PHOENIX (AP) - Buying a ticket should be no problem for anyone who wants to attend the first two games of the NL championship series.
About 8,000 seats remain available for Thursday night and Friday night, Arizona Diamondbacks president Derrick Hall said Tuesday.
Hall said he expected a crowd in the mid-40,000 range for the opener against Colorado and perhaps a sellout at 48,000-seat Chase Field for Game 2.
"I think we'll get there," he said. "Fans were waiting to see what the start times were."
The opener starts at 5:37 p.m. local time, with the second game beginning at 7:18.
Arizona drew a sellout in one game and a near-sellout in the other in their division series against Chicago. Attendance was boosted by the many Cubs fans who live in the Phoenix area.
It's not like the Snakes are making the playoffs every year and this is some ho-hum event. Denver isn't that far either ... two teams, geographically conveniently located, and no sellouts?
