RIVERDALE, NJ--(Marketwire - October 05, 2012) -
New York Yankees playoff tickets are now available through New Jersey ticket broker Select-A-Ticket, which is good news to the thousands of local fans and tens of thousands of Yankees fans scattered throughout North America. The Yankees have once again finished atop the American League East and are headed to the playoffs with a strong team and a great chance to reach the World Series, meaning that thousands of people are currently in a mad dash to get their hands on Yankees playoff tickets.
The Yankees open the American League Divisional Series on Tuesday and will face the winner of the American League Wild Card Game between Baltimore and Texas, which is to be played on October 5.
The Yankees tend to make their way into the postseason nearly every year, but this year's divisional race was highly unusual. New York has grown accustomed to doing battle with the Boston Red Sox throughout the season for the divisional lead but the Red Sox struggled early in the year, traded many of their best players toward the end of the summer and disappeared from the pennant race by August.
The Baltimore Orioles stepped up and challenged the Yankees down the stretch, pushing them to the final game of the regular season before the Yankees sealed first place.
The 2012 Yankees are fueled by strong pitching and a formidable lineup of hitters. This combination will give New York an edge in the playoffs against any opponent. C.C. Sabathia finished the regular season at 15-6 and averaged one strikeout per inning pitched. Veteran Andy Pettitte returned from retirement to lead the team with a 2.87 earned run average.
At the plate is where the Yankees are most dangerous. The Yankee batting order is filled with so many hitters that the likelihood of keeping them off the scoreboard for a full series is very low. Centerfielder Curtis Granderson has been the team's most important player this season, swatting 43 home runs to lead the team. Russell Martin, Mark Teixeira, Nick Swisher, Alex Rodriquez, Robinson Cano and future first-ballot Hall-of-Famer Derek Jeter all have made major contributions, and Ichiro Suzuki was added mid-season to bolster the lineup which was already filled with veteran stars.
Simply put, the Yankees have more stars than any other team in the majors and with strong pitching and solid hitting, they are going to be a tough out for any opponent looking to reach the World Series. As a result, New York Yankees playoff tickets are among the hottest tickets in sports right now.
