This from the Yankees:

PUBLIC ON-SALE FOR 2009 DIVISION SERIES AND LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES TICKETS TO BEGIN MONDAY, OCTOBER 5 AT 10:00 A.M.

Tickets for 2009 American League Division Series (ALDS) and American League Championship Series (ALCS) games at Yankee Stadium will go on sale to the public on Monday, October 5 at 10:00 a.m. Tickets will be sold online only at yankees.com from the start of Monday’s on-sale until 9:00 a.m. on the date of the Yankees’ first scheduled ALDS home game.

Beginning at 9:00 a.m. on the date of the Yankees’ first scheduled ALDS home game, tickets will be available online at yankees.com and at Yankee Stadium Advance Ticket Windows.

Please note that ALDS and ALCS tickets will not be available for purchase at Yankees Clubhouse Shops or through Ticketmaster outlets or phone sales.

Due to the limited number of tickets available for sale, those purchasing tickets will be limited to two tickets to one game of the ALDS or two tickets to one game of the ALCS, subject to availability. Orders exceeding the assigned ticket limits will be cancelled without contact from Ticketmaster or the New York Yankees.

Tickets purchased via the Internet for Division Series Home Game 1 and Home Game 2 must be purchased utilizing “print at home” technology. There will be no option for Will Call or express shipping.

In an effort to create additional opportunities for fans to attend 2009 postseason games at Yankee Stadium, the Yankees will make tickets available in two new seating areas. There will be 60 café seats on the Field Level concourse available for $81 per ticket for the Division Series and $131 per ticket for the League Championship Series. Additionally, approximately 200 standing room tickets for dedicated standing locations on the Field and Main Levels will cost $33 and $25, respectively, for the ALDS and $64 and $48, respectively, for the ALCS.

Fans are encouraged to visit yankees.com for complete postseason ticket information, including the refund procedure for any unplayed games. World Series ticket information will be made available at a later date.

    I’m sitting on my couch watching in hi def for free….’cept the cost of a 12 pack and some ribs/chicken.

    $64 to stand? Jeesh!

  2. Rex October 2nd, 2009 at 2:12 pm

    BA has Sallie League Top 20 up:

    Manny Banuelos is #9
    Melky Mesa is #20

  3. Jerkface October 2nd, 2009 at 2:13 pm

    Playoff game, and you would literally not pay $64 to say you were there when CC threw a perfect game in the playoffs? Or saw A-rod walk off to send the yankees to the world series?

  4. Rex October 2nd, 2009 at 2:13 pm

    One more in the Sallie League:

    SJ44′s nephew, Tony Sanchez came in at #12. Nice start.

    Jerkface:

    No, I wouldn’t. Back and knee wouldn’t allow for it, and even it did, I wouldn’t be interested. I can get the same joy from seeing it at home with friends and would probably see it better than most of those at the Stadium, and do so in considerably more comfort.

    Will tickets be on ticketmaster.com? Usually, once you select tickets from yankees.com, it sends you to TM anyways.

    I cant access yankees.com at work.

  7. S.o.S. October 2nd, 2009 at 2:26 pm

    Whats up fellas.

    Iv been swamped for the last month or so moving my family and business. So i havnt been able to keep up here. Where did Pete go? Do we know who will be starting game 2 for us?

    Thanks in advance. I have to figure out a way to find more time come next week to spend it here for the playoffs.

    Doreen,
    It feels like its 1998 again. What better way to open up the new stadium than to win #27 in its first year of existance. I think the ghost have awaken(proof in our last at bat wins)and are just warming up to be in full force come next week.

  8. Tom B October 2nd, 2009 at 2:28 pm

    if they blocked off the areas i usually stand at when i go to games i’m gonna be pissed off. i bought these cheap playoff seats for a reason, to not sit in them!

  9. Brian from PA October 2nd, 2009 at 2:29 pm

    i love those things. on sale to the public at 10AM. You have everything filled out and ready to go, hit submit at exactly 10 AM, and get a message saying there’s nothing available. my la-z-boy will have to do, even if it means listening to the TBS guys and the amazing Joe Buck and Tim McCarver.

  10. Tom B October 2nd, 2009 at 2:29 pm

    bill it will only be on yankees.com, and they do not forward you to ticketmaster.

  11. pat October 2nd, 2009 at 2:32 pm

    The cafe seats look like quite the bargain. I read this article about them the other day.

    “Suffering” a metal barstool is a pretty good trade off for the location.

    “SJ44’s nephew, Tony Sanchez came in at #12. Nice start.”

    Congratulations to SJ and his family. Funny how I feel invested in the future of a young man I’ve never met.

  13. Tyler October 2nd, 2009 at 2:45 pm

    whens the first game? tuesday?

  14. baseballfab October 2nd, 2009 at 2:50 pm

    Why would PeteAbes twitter link here? Doesn’t he work for the Globe now?

  15. betsy October 2nd, 2009 at 2:53 pm

    Frank, thanks! I will check it out later……

    Sam, we gotta replace your photo in the little calendar with a yankee logo or something.

    30 best moves made this year:

    4. Yankees sign Mark Teixeira for $180 million over eight years. The Red Sox power brokers had a bad meeting with Teixeira at his Dallas-area home, opening the door for Yankees’ GM Brian Cashman, who implored his bosses to take the big plunge and beat Boston’s $170 million bid by telling them it was an opportunity to “make the Red Sox look bad.” It also made the Yankees look good.

    10. Yankees sign CC Sabathia for $161 million. Some wondered whether the Yankees had to pay this much. That’ll never be known, but they felt a threat from Sabathia’s home-state Angels and simply had to have Sabathia, the ace they plainly needed.

    17. Yankees sign Andy Pettitte for $5.5 million plus incentives. Pettitte held out for long enough for the price to drop, but he made it up in incentives after delivering an excellent year in the Bronx.

    30. Yankees pick up Chad Gaudin off the waiver wire. For $100,000, Cashman got a pitcher that may supplant Joba Chamberlain as the team’s No. 4 starter if the Yankees need one later in the playoffs. Twenty eight teams passed before Cashman pounced.

    • The Red Sox should not have hung around the clubhouse to celebrate the occasion of their backing in. This is a team that’s won two titles in the last half decade, so backing into a wild-card spot should not have been worth staying at the park ’til past midnight to toast. They turned it into a late night, making their matchup the next day vs. Roy Halladay the surest bet of the season. They lost 12-zip.

    missed this one too…(Yankees, Rockies and Mariners had the most on the list):

    18. Yankees acquire Nick Swisher for Wilson Betemit, Jhonny Nunez and Jeff Marquez and a pitching prospect. It seemed like an extravagance once the Yankees acquired Teixeira, as Swisher appeared destined to become an expensive and dissatisfied bench player. But when Xavier Nady went down with elbow trouble, Swisher moved to right field where he became a power threat and fan favorite.

    Michael Kay has got to be kidding. He wants to take Joba (even though he thinks he’s pitched himself off the post-season roster) just so we can protect his psyche for next year…..

  21. Rishi October 2nd, 2009 at 3:10 pm

    can’t get it to post, but the Swisher move was also #18 on that list

  22. Jerkface October 2nd, 2009 at 3:11 pm

    You left Swish off:

    That has got to be the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard. The Yankees should waste a roster spot to protect his confidence? If Joba is that fragile (and this would not be a personal thing against him – it would be a business decision), then there is a problem. Roster spots are valuable………if the Yankees think Joba will help them, then take him. If they don’t, then they shouldn’t.

  24. Hokiehill October 2nd, 2009 at 3:12 pm

    I’d take standing room only at that price for the ALDS and ALCS in YS! Too bad I live in Virginia!

  25. randy l. October 2nd, 2009 at 3:13 pm

    jerkface-

    read your comments concerning you questioning pete’s baseball fan loyalties.

    i have one question to ask you.

    are you more informed about the yankees now than you were when you started taking part in the blog ?

    if the answer is yes i don’t see your problem and what you’re complaining about.
    it’s naive to think that pros root for teams the same way fans do.

    i read your posts . you’re obviously a smart guy so i don’t get it that you can’t imagine that you’d change your loyalties once you got inside the pro game in some capacity.

    as a matter of fact, if you ever want to work in baseball , you have to check your fandom at the door. people who work in the game simply don’t root for teams in the same way.
    you wouldn’t either.

    rishi you missed a HUGE one…

    moving right along :arrow:

    ————————————————————

    A lot of people are making a mistake in disregarding the contributions that AJ Burnett has made to the Yanks…not just this year, but, going foreward. NYY and Boston would be swapping places without him. Next year, has every chance of being his best. His numbers this season are quite similar to last year’s. The difference in win totals are more because of lack of support than anything. The same can be said for Pettitte’s low win totals. They both should be 4-6 wins higher.

  29. Arno October 2nd, 2009 at 4:13 pm

    Oh I am SO going to camp for those tickets (virtually) starting Monday morning.

  30. Joe Yankee October 2nd, 2009 at 4:59 pm

    Hey: Questions, if anyone has the answers, and my two cents on the Joba situation:

    If you got tickets to the ALDS and ALCS already through the season ticket holder online pre-sale, can you get tickets now as well through this public sale? I think the answer is yes, but if it’s no, then people run the risk of the Yankees/Ticketmast cancelling their orders.

    Also, the fine print says that people can get tickets to the ALDS or the ALCS. Note the word OR there. Is that correct? You’re not allowed to get tickets to one game in EACH series? They had similar wording for the pre-sale, but you WERE allowed to buy two tickets for EACH round. Can someone clarify?

    And as much as I think Joba will pull it together at some point, I don’t think it’s worth putting him on the roster now just for the sake of his confidence. If they bring him and don’t pitch him, that won’t help. If they bring him and he gets shelled, that certainly won’t help. I think they bring Gaudin, who’s proven his worth. And you hope that next year, Joba will be off the leash and have his head on straight.
