With 23 games remaining in the 2016 regular season, the Thunder, Double-A affiliate of the New York Yankees, announced today that fans can purchase tickets to all potential playoff games at ARM & HAMMER Park.
Entering play this evening, the Thunder stand 8.5 games clear of the Hartford Yard Goats for the second and final playoff spot in the Eastern League’s East Division, just 3.0 games back of Reading for the top spot in the division.
Tickets may be reserved online by clicking here or by calling the Thunder Ticket Office at 609-394-3300 x101.
Thunder full and half season ticket holders have until August 26 to claim their seats for the playoffs. Season ticket holders are encouraged to order their seats online but can also order in-person or by phone.
Tickets will be available to print-at-home or pick up at the Will Call window the day after the Thunder clinch their exact playoff spot. Fans will receive a refund for tickets to any home playoff games that are not played. Season ticket holders will receive a credit towards their 2016 season ticket package.
The Thunder last played postseason baseball in 2013 and went on to sweep the Binghamton Mets and Harrisburg Senators on their way to their third EL Championship in franchise history.
