Out Of State Favorite MLB Team In The Playoffs? 2 Tips To Get You To The Game

Posted on: 2 August 2018

If your favorite Major League Baseball (MLB) team is out of state and playing in the playoffs and you want to go, you should take steps now to get ready. Because it is a playoff game this type of sporting event will likely be very crowded and tickets will likely sell out quickly. To help you make it to the event, below are two tips to get you to the game.

Buy Tickets

There are many ways to purchase tickets, but you have to be careful. Purchasing the tickets directly from the baseball stadium is the best way to go. You know the tickers are legitimate, so you will have no problems. Besides the baseball stadium you can purchase tickets at some grocery stores in your area.  Ticket sellers choose to sell their tickets at a grocery store because there are a lot of people that come in and out each day.

You will find scalpers at the sports stadium but in many cases these tickets will be much higher than they traditionally are. If you are lucky, however, you will find someone selling tickets at face value. If you cannot find tickets before you go to the sports stadium, go early so you can find scalpers that are selling them.

Find a Hotel

Another thing you need to do now is to find a hotel. Because this is a playoff game hotel in the area will fill up fast. If it is a few weeks away, you may be able to find a hotel that still has rooms that is close to the venue. You should know these hotels will generally be expensive.

If you want to save money book a hotel that is further away from the sports stadium. Most cities have buses that go different routes, including to the sports stadium. If you do this, check the bus routes before you go to ensure you know where the buses start and end.  

To save even more money you can choose to stay in a hostel. Instead of separate rooms there are several beds in one large room. There are generally a few bathrooms for everyone to share. If you choose a hostel sleep on the bottom bunk and bring along your own sheets. Take a shower before you arrive, if possible.

These two tips should help you enjoy your experience of watching your favorite MLB team play in the playoffs. Another option is to root for your local league, like the Lincoln Saltdogs Baseball, when you can't make it to an MLB game.
