O's outline plans for fans to secure playoff tickets
SEATTLE -- The Orioles have announced three options for fans to purchase postseason tickets, which will be available exclusively online at www.orioles.com/postseason.

Fans are encouraged to visit the website for a postseason seating chart, schedule and additional ticket information. All three ticket options are for fans to purchase American League Wild Card and AL Division Series tickets. (AL Championship Series and World Series tickets will be made available for sale at a later date, if necessary).

Option 1
Fans will receive the opportunity to purchase postseason tickets before the general public by placing a $250-per-seat deposit on a 2013 full or partial season-ticket plan, including 13-game plans. Fans who place a deposit by midnight ET on Monday will have access to an exclusive online-only presale on Thursday at 2 p.m. Beginning on Tuesday, 2013 deposits will no longer guarantee fans an opportunity to participate in the presale.

Option 2
Fans can enter the postseason ticket opportunity with a valid e-mail address at www.orioles.com/postseason for a chance to be selected to participate in a special presale prior to tickets being released to the general public. Fans are encouraged to enter the postseason ticket opportunity in order to have a better chance at acquiring postseason tickets. Fans who enter, however, are not guaranteed to be chosen for the opportunity.

Option 3
A public sale for AL Wild Card and AL Division Series tickets will take place on Saturday at 10 a.m., exclusively online at www.orioles.com/postseason. Ticket availability is expected to be limited, and tickets may sell out quickly.
