POSTSEASON FACT SHEET

Major League Baseball Postseason Summary

Ten teams, five from each league, qualify for postseason play. In both the American and National League, the three division winners will automatically qualify, and the two remaining teams with the best winning percentage will earn the two Wild Card spots. There are four rounds of play in the Major League Baseball postseason.

  • Round 1: A one-game match-up between the two Wild Card teams
  • Round 2: Two best-of-5 Division Series played in a 2-2-1 format, with the higher seeded teams hosting games 1, 2, and 5* (* if necessary)
  • Round 3: A best-of-7 League Championship Series played in a 2-3-2 format, with the higher seeded team hosting games 1, 2, 6*, and 7* (*if necessary)
  • Round 4: A best-of-7 World Series played in a 2-3-2 format, with the American League team hosting Games 1, 2, 6*, and 7* (* if necessary)

The Orioles could potentially host up to 11 postseason games (either three in the Division series OR a Wild Card game + two in the Division Series; four in the League Championship Series; and four in the World Series).

Parking

If you purchased a 2014 regular season parking package, the option to purchase postseason parking passes will be added to your invoice based on the number of passes you had in 2014. Parking passes will be invoiced collectively for all games in the postseason ticket package. Best efforts are made to relocate as few parking assignments as possible; however, there are several parking demands that exist for the postseason including commitments for MLB and its partners.

Delivery Method

Tickets will be shipped to the address listed on the season ticket account with NO SIGNATURE REQUIRED. Tickets cannot be sent to a P.O. Box. Due to the very short delivery window, it is imperative that you confirm your accurate address information is on your account.

Postseason ticket packages cannot be picked up at the Orioles offices. Having them shipped via FedEx is the only delivery option available.

Will Call Drop-Offs Not Accepted

Will Call drop-offs cannot be accepted for the postseason. If you are transferring tickets to a third party, please make delivery arrangements in advance or use your Orioles Account Manager available online at www.orioles.com/myaccount to forward the tickets electronically.

TICKET FORWARDS

You can forward your postseason tickets through your online My Tickets account once you have paid your invoice and tickets have been mailed (approximately September 25th). Please remember, once you choose to transfer a ticket, the original ticket is no longer valid. Tickets may be transferred until 2 hours prior to game time.

CHECK YOUR TICKETS

Please make sure to double-check your tickets before you leave for the game. You will need to have the correct numbered ticket that corresponds to the scheduled home game for the appropriate series. Please take extra care to examine your tickets as series names and logos may appear similar. Fans arriving without the correct tickets will not be admitted. Tickets cannot be reprinted or replaced.

LOST OR STOLEN TICKETS

Please take all necessary precautions and safeguard your tickets. Handle them in the same way you would handle cash. There are no complimentary tickets for postseason games. Lost tickets cannot be reprinted or replaced. A police report is required to replace stolen tickets. If tickets are stolen, the Season Plan Holder listed on the season ticket account may have the tickets reprinted provided a police report is filed to replace the stolen tickets.

Postseason Seat Assignments and Pricing

Current season plan locations cannot be guaranteed for postseason seat locations. Best efforts are made to relocate as few Full Season and 29-Game Season Plan Holders as possible when assigning seats for the postseason; however, there are several seating demands that exist for the postseason including commitments for Major League Baseball and its partners. When relocations occur, best efforts are made to take into consideration the location of your regular season seats. Due to the large number of 13-Game Plan Holders, postseason seat assignments for Bronze Packages were relocated in almost all instances.

Pricing varies for each postseason round and must be approved by Major League Baseball. Your package price reflects your exclusive season ticket discount. Postseason Pricing »

Online Payments

You are encouraged to take advantage of the most convenient way to pay for your postseason ticket packages through your Orioles Account Manager available online at www.orioles.com/myaccount.

Payment Information

In order to purchase your postseason ticket package, payment must be received no later than Friday, September 5, 2014. After this date, the seat location on your invoice will no longer be available, and the opportunity to purchase postseason ticket packages can no longer be guaranteed.

  • Personal checks will not be accepted as payment for your postseason ticket package.

Additional Postseason Ticket Purchase Opportunities

Single game postseason tickets will be made available to all Season Plan Holders prior to being released for sale to the general public. A date and time for this online pre-sale will be announced VIA EMAIL in mid-September.

For each postseason game, plan holders are eligible to purchase (up to) the same number of seats as they purchased for their 2014 season plan, subject to availability. The maximum purchase allowed is 8 tickets per game. Full Season Plan Holders will be eligible to purchase tickets at the discounted "Full Season" pricing. 29 and 13 Game Plan Holders will be eligible to purchase tickets at the discounted "Partial Plan" pricing.

Credits/Refunds/Exchanges

Should any game(s) not be played, any postseason payments for those games will be applied toward your 2015 season tickets. Once postseason tickets are mailed (approximately September 25th), handling fees will be non-refundable. Should you select Payment Option #1 and wish to have a refund for any postseason games not played, the Orioles must receive your request in writing no later than Friday, November 7, 2014.

If you selected Payment Option #1, refund requests should be submitted to Baltimore Orioles, ATTN: Postseason Refund, 333 West Camden Street, Baltimore, MD 21201.
