Ticket Liquidator's Ticket of the Week: MLB Interleague Match-ups

VERNON, CT--(Marketwire - June 15, 2009) - Ticket Liquidator, the leading provider of the world's most extensive ticket inventory for hard-to-find, low priced tickets, today announced that tickets for all Major League Baseball games are available for purchase at Interleague baseball features some of the most exciting matchups of the baseball season, including games with the Yankees, Mets, Cubs and White Sox. Aside from the World Series, interleague play is the only time that teams based in the same respective cities in the American League (AL) compete with teams from the National League (NL).

Perhaps the most popular interleague matchup is the 'Subway Series,' which denotes games featuring the New York Yankees and the New York Mets. With both teams opening brand-new ballparks this year, the New Yankee Stadium and Citi Field, the series between these two teams is expected to draw huge crowds. The Yankees and Mets will play a total of six games, two sets of three games in each ballpark. The Yankees won two of three games this past weekend on their home turf, so Mets fans anticipate payback in round two of the series. The second and final Subway Series is scheduled for Friday, June 26th through Sunday, June 28th at Citi Field.

"While interleague play may not be a perfect system, there is no denying that it generates plenty of excitement in several large local markets," said Alexandra Owens, Managing Editor, TicketLiquidator. "At the height of the MLB season, many baseball fans will kick off their summer vacations by factoring interleague play into their itineraries," added Owens.

The series between the Chicago Cubs and White Sox is another captivating matchup that baseball fans on the north and south sides of Chicago look forward to all year. Both teams have solid records in the early part of the season and in addition to the intrigue of an inter-city matchup, the series could help predict which team will make it to MLB postseason play.

On the west coast, fans are gearing up to see the Los Angeles Dodgers compete against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. The Anaheim, Los Angeles rivalry between these teams results in a lot of demand for series tickets. The Dodgers have been leading the NL's Western Division while the Angels trail the Texas Rangers in the AL West standings.

The 2009 interleague play schedule includes a rematch of last fall's World Series teams, the Philadelphia Phillies and the Tampa Bay Rays. Other hot interleague play tickets include Boston Red Sox vs. Atlanta Braves, Baltimore Orioles vs. Washington Nationals, St. Louis Cardinals vs. Kansas City Royals, Florida Marlins vs. Tampa Bay Rays, Cleveland Indians vs. Cincinnati Reds, Houston Astros vs. Texas Rangers, Oakland Athletics vs. San Francisco Giants and many more.
