NEW YORK -- The Yankees have announced that tickets for the first two rounds of postseason games at Yankee Stadium will go on sale to the public on Monday, Oct. 5 at 10 a.m. ET.
Tickets for the 2009 American League Division Series and 2009 American League Championship Series will be sold online only at yankees.com from the start of Monday's on-sale until 9 a.m. on the date of the Yankees' first scheduled ALDS 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.
ALDS and ALCS tickets will not be available for purchase at Yankees Clubhouse Shops or through Ticketmaster outlets or phone sales.
