hall of fame open
The Baseball Hall of Fame opened its doors to the hall of fame open public on Sunday. The new museum, which is located in Cooperstown, New York, features interactive exhibits and a theater that show highlights of players’ careers. The hall of fame also includes a library and research center.
“This is a great day for baseball,” said Bud Selig, commissioner of Major League Baseball. “The Hall of Fame is now the ultimate destination for fans of our national pastime.”
The $53 million museum was funded by private donations and government grants.
The World Games tickets are now on sale. You can purchase them through the official website of The World Games.
Prices for tickets vary depending the world games tickets on the event. There are also different prices for adults and children. You will need to purchase a ticket for each event that you would like to attend.
The opening and closing ceremonies are the most expensive events. They cost $75 for adults and $50 for children. Other events such as track and field, gymnastics, and soccer have a much lower price of $10 for adults and $5 for children.
When your major league baseball team finally makes it to the World Series, you’d better be there! You will surely want to watch and cheer on your team as they fight it out for the championship. So be sure you don’t miss the chance to go to the World Series when the chance arises – but where to start looking for tickets? Read on for tips to assist in finding some (legal) World Series tickets.
Talk to other people. Before searching online for World Series tickets, make sure you speak to people you know who may have some connections or know how to get tickets. Share these things with people you care about such as family and friends. Maybe someone you know is a season ticket holder or maybe someone you know has World Series tickets. Start contacting old friends from your address book to let them know you’re interested in getting to the World Series.
Try checking TicketMaster. For more information on upcoming events and ticket availability, visit the Ticketmaster web site. Check the site as early as possible, a few weeks beforehand, so that you know what day to go to the site to buy tickets before they sell out. Telephoning Ticketmaster on the same day the World Series tickets become available for purchase is another good idea. Call early for the best seating and have your credit card handy. True fans of baseball don’t even care how high ticket prices are. Most of the time they are so overcome with joy that their team made it all the way to the World Series.
Go ahead and try eBay. Online auction sites like eBay may be your last resort if you want to go to the World Series and search for World Series tickets. If and when you find some, it is important that you buy from a seller who has an excellent feedback rating, or else your tickets may never show up.
As a last resort, try scalped tickets. You have to be pretty desperate to get into the game, but if so get to the stadium on the day and take the risk that someone will be there selling scalped tickets. If you do buy tickets from a scalper you are going to be much more than the usual price for a ticket. Also, there may be a chance that the ticket is fake, or even stolen. Selling scalped tickets is illegal.
It’s that time of the year again – baseball fever is spreading like wildfire, and tickets are selling faster than hotdogs. So, your team is playing, and you have to be there. What are your options for buying World Series tickets before there are none left to buy?
First – the traditional method. Pick up the phone and try to purchase tickets from the team during the scheduled sale period. The bad news, of course, is that these tickets usually sell out within 30 minutes flat. Solution? If the ticket agency or team provides multiple phone numbers to call, get all your friends and family organized to call as many times as possible across the multiple numbers.
Another way of getting your hands on those precious tickets is to identify those among your network of contacts (friends, family members or coworkers) who are season ticket holders for one of the teams. Season ticket holders usually get an option to buy tickets at the face value price. See, it pays to keep in touch!
Alternately, you can surf the Internet. Log on to the tickets section of the team’s website – but let’s be honest, hoping that the team is going to have tickets on sale is a total shot in the dark.
Besides the team website, other sites, such as Tickets 4 U, offer World Series tickets. This is how it works – season ticket holders who, for whatever reason, are not able to make it to the game, post their tickets for sale on the site. As a result, these sites often sell the best seats in the house. Of course, playoff tickets don’t come cheap. But you can also find tickets for more affordable sections on these sites.
And then there are always the ticket broker websites from where you can purchase tickets. Your ticket may be just a Google click away.
A word of caution – please do buy tickets ONLY from reputable agents / brokers / intermediaries. You don’t want to buy a ticket and then not get to see the game because what you bought was a scam ticket (yes it does happen), do you?
So how does reputable translate on the net? In webspace, the site that you are conducting the transaction with should be secure, first of all. Second of all, they should have a past history that vouches for their integrity in dealings with customers. Tip – a seal of approval from the Better Business Bureau, Verisign or other such authorities is a good sign.
Remember – if you buy your World Series tickets well in advance of the game (before opponents are finalized), there is a good chance of getting tickets at better prices. At this point the demand for tickets will be lower so the chances of finding exactly the seat you want from a site like Tickets 4 U is all the better.
