The magic number for the Tigers to clinch a division title is down to 12. The magic date for fans is now Monday. That’s when Division Series tickets go on sale.
With an AL Central title now firmly in their reach, the Tigers announced that they’ll put postseason tickets on sale Monday at 10 a.m. The only ways to buy them will be online at tigers.com/postseason or by phone at 866-66-TIGER. The Comerica Park box office will NOT be selling tickets in person.
Fans are limited to buying six tickets per game. For ticket pricing information, click here.
At this point, while the dates for AL Division Series games are set, which games the Tigers would host are not. They’re up a half-game on Texas for the AL’s second seed. If they hold onto that, they’ll host the first two games of the Division Series on Friday, Sept. 30 and Saturday, Oct. 1., and a potential Game 5 on Thursday, Oct. 6. They would host the AL Wild Card, which will be the second-place team from the AL East.
If the Tigers finish behind Texas or the Angels, whichever wins the AL West, they’ll be the third seed and face the AL East winner. That would leave Detroit hosting Game 3 on Monday, Oct. 3 and a potential Game 4 on Tuesday, Oct. 4.
Tickets for a potential ALCS or World Series will on sale later as needed.
