Moosic, Pa. – What a run it has been. From the Mark Teixeira meet-and-greet extravaganza in February to the rousing success that was the Yankees Legends Series, the banner 2016 campaign has been one for the ages. And the good times keep on rolling. In addition to the upcoming Jimmy Cefalo Day on August 27 at PNC Field, the first-place SWB RailRiders (Triple-A/New York Yankees) are excited to announce that playoff tickets are on sale now.
Tickets may be purchased by phone at 570-969-BALL (2255) or in person at the PNC Field box office, open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Starting at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, August 24, tickets may be purchased online at SWBRailRiders.com or through Ticketmaster.
“A great year rolls on and hopefully it ends with our second Governors’ Cup,” said SWB General Manager Jeremy Ruby. “We are looking forward to having a playoff atmosphere back at PNC Field.”
SWB currently owns the best record in Triple-A at 79-48 and have a magic number of nine to clinch a postseason berth. They lead the Lehigh Valley IronPigs by three games in the International League North Division. RailRiders fans have had the opportunity to watch rising Yankees stars such as Aaron Judge, Gary Sanchez and Tyler Austin this summer and there is still a chance to see top prospects Clint Frazier and Luis Severino and IL All-Star Ben Gamel.
Should the RailRiders claim the IL North, they would open their best-of-five First-Round Governors’ Cup Series at the wild-card winner’s ballpark. Game One would be played on September 7 and Game Two would come on September 8. The RailRiders’ first playoff home game would be on Friday, September 9. If necessary, a Game Four would come on Saturday, September 10 and a potential Game Five would be played on Sunday, September 11.
Should the RailRiders advance to the best-of-five Governors’ Cup Finals, they would play the first two games at PNC Field on September 13 and 14 with Game Three at the winner of the South/West First Round Series matchup on September 15. If necessary, Games Four and Five would follow on September 16 and 17.
Ticket prices for playoff games include: Club & 4Topp – $15; Infield Box – $10; Field Reserve/RailHouse – $8; Bleachers – $5; Lawn – $5.
