Japan WBC tickets are selling fast!

by on Feb.22, 2009 @ 6:22 pm, under WBC

I originally wanted to buy a strip pack for all 6 games, but I completely blanked on the deadline.Figures.

I was also waiting on a couple of things to clear on my schedule, so I suppose it couldn't really be helped.

But I also wasn't worried about tickets selling out...

...because that wasn't necessarily a problem during the first WBC (or least that's what I'm guessing based on the attendance figures I've seen).

And then I heard the attendance figures...

...from the first practice game between Samurai Japan and the Yomiuri Giants.


...for a practice game?!

And then I started to worry...

...with so many people in attendance, it could only mean that tickets to the actual games will sell out just as quickly.

It turns out I was right to worry.

When I checked ticket availability yesterday, I found out that tickets for games 3 and 4 on Saturday were all...


Tickets for other days were pretty limited as well. Many of the seats on the first base side (the side where Samurai Japan's dugout will be located on) were gone, but I actually managed to score a couple.

In fact, I managed to grab tickets to all the games, except, of course, for Saturday. They aren't in the best locations, but then that's why I have a zoom lens.

    I’m glad to see that the support is so strong over there. And despite not getting the tickets that you might have preferred, at least you will be able to attend some of the games. I’m looking forward to hearing about it and seeing shots that you are able to get.
