With the AL West title all but wrapped up the A’s started selling playoff tickets yesterday … and immediately sold out. So now they’ve decided to remove the tarps covering the upper deck and sell those seats, which would add about 12,000 more fans per game.
Here’s more from Jane Lee of MLB.com:
With the upper deck open, minus the peak of Mount Davis, capacity will be 48,146. Normal capacity is 35,067, which is what it was for the ALDS last year when the Tigers came to town. Even then, it was deafening.
