Got an email about this, thought it was kind of weird


Press release http://www.stubhub.com/sites/corpsite/?gsec=news&gact=press&article_id=5510

Starting with the 2008 season, StubHub will gain unprecedented category exclusivity from MLBAM with its designation, along with official, club-endorsed status from each participating Major League Baseball team. Exclusivity will pertain to all online secondary ticket sales through MLB team sites supplanting other current secondary solutions. All existing team enabled online secondary ticket offerings will be assumed by StubHub, enabling for all bar code ticketing, ticketing kiosks and any other electronic/mobile ticketing delivery, validation and transfers. Additional elements include promotion of the ticket marketplace on MLB.com and participating club sites as well.

I'm guessing this means for the Season Ticket Exchange type of thing? Or all tickets all together. Or are the Sox going to start putting some tickets on there?

It says something on kiosks, I would love it if you could choose picking it up at a kiosk or will call instead of $20 overnight.
