Playoff Plans

The reality of what goes into the planning of post-season baseball means the White Sox already are in working mode for October.

Every department has begun preparing for post-season play, including the ticket office. Preliminary information has gone out already about purchasing post-season tickets, with promotional ideas tied in now toward season ticket purchases for 2013. The campaigns are expected to offer the chance to purchase post-season tickets for this year to those who commit to buying tickets for next season.

With an added wild card in each league this year, the Sox are among a number of teams that are in preparation mode. Eight teams in the American League are vying for one of the five post-season berths.
