Just got back from "Tucson First," which is a local event at Tucson Electric Park whereby you can have first crack at ST tickets two hours before they officially go on sale.

Obviously an indication of the demand for ST tickets this year, the crowd was HUGE, the largest ever, and there was more Sox gear there than Diamondbacks gear. While in line they mentioned that tickets for the Cubs game March 18 would not be available to those in line. Fortunately, they had a season ticket booth set up and if you went that route you did not have to wait in line. So I wound up reserving two season tickets behind the Sox dugout for all 15 home games. I would still be in line if I hadn't have done that.

I just took a look at tickets for the Cubs game and they are available online. Well, for now anyway...

Ya me neither. The little "T" icon which means Purchase tickets isn't there.

I got tickets for the game against the Angels at Tempe, and it worked fine there (although there's no more Will Call option, which was how I did it two years ago).

I also just got back from TEP and I scored 6 tickets behind home plate, rows 14 and 15. But I was fifth in line, having gotten up at 4 a.m. so that I could get there by 6 and wait in line for 4 hours. Worth the wait, at least for me.

It was great to see all the Sox fans there, many in new World Series Champions gear, (I had on my WS locker room hat, my Totally Biased Sox Fan shirt, and my old beat-up Starter jacket) and we were all smiling at each other!

Huh, works for me too now. I guess having Dial-up, when they say "1:00", I have to wait an extra 40 minutes or so, LOL.

I was online and kept refreshing my page until the green T showed up. I was able to get 3 tickets in Section 115, Row 6 for the Cubs-Sox game.

This is odd..... it is now 2:00 and if you go to the Sox main web page, they say that tickets are now on sale......but then there is no "T" icon for the home ST games?

I want to get tickets for the March 3rd Sox game at TEP. It is a Diamondbacks home game. Supposedly their tickets went on sale today too but I can't get the green "T" on the Diamondbacks website or get through onthe phone. Has anyone ordered any Diamondback home games?

NEVER MIND! I got them!
