Amazing how this announcement coincided with the Manny signing, isn’t it? Here is the official release from the Dodgers:
LOS ANGELES – Single-game tickets to see Manny Ramirez, Orlando Hudson, and all of the 2009 Los Angeles Dodgers, defending champions of the National League West, go on sale this Saturday, March 7 at 10:00 a.m. Fans can purchase online at dodgers.com, via telephone at 866-DODGERS, in person at Dodger Stadium in Lot P, and at all Southern California Ticketmaster outlets. The Dodgers held ticket prices, which start at $9, at 2008 levels.
Season ticket plans, partial and full, range from as few as 7 games to as many as all 81. The popular ampm All-You-Can-Eat Pavilion, Baseline Box Club, and Dugout Club seats will be again available in 2009 as well.
“The most convenient way to purchase tickets is on line,” said Dodgers Chief Operating Officer Dennis Mannion. “Families can purchase tickets in the comfort of their own home, or if they prefer, order by telephone. Of course, for those who still prefer to visit our box office, we will offer our hospitality as well.”
Fans who wish to purchase tickets in person at Dodger Stadium can enter via the Sunset Gate as early as 8 a.m. and receive numbered wristbands until a starting number is randomly selected at 8:45 a.m. There is no advantage to arriving before 8 a.m.
The person with the selected number will have the first opportunity to purchase tickets at 10:00 a.m., and the remainder of the group will be served in numerical sequence. Fans arriving after 8:45 a.m. will receive a different color wristband, and that group will be helped after the first. There is a limit of four Opening Day tickets available for purchase per person while supplies last.
The Dodgers open the 2009 regular season at home on April 13 against the San Francisco Giants at 1:10 p.m. The schedule can be found online at dodgers.com.
