Possible Tiebreaker Game Set for Monday, October 1 at Busch Stadium
ST. LOUIS, Mo., September 24, 2018– In the event the Cardinals finish the 2018 regular season tied for a Postseason berth, a tiebreaker game will be held at Busch Stadium on Monday, October 1.
Tiebreaker game tickets start at just $10 and will go on sale Tuesday, September 25 at 10 AM CT. Tickets will be available at cardinals.com, via phone at 314.345.9000, and at the Busch Stadium Box Office.
If played, this would be the second tiebreaker scenario in Cardinals history. In 1946, the Cardinals and Brooklyn Dodgers finished with identical 96-58 records, setting up the first-ever best-of-three playoff series (which was used until divisional play in 1969). The Cardinals won the tiebreaker series and eventually went on to win the 1946 World Series. Monday’s potential game would be the first one-game tiebreaker in Cardinals franchise history.
Tickets for potential NL Wild Card and Division Series games are currently on sale. For a full calendar of the 2018 MLB Postseason schedule, visit mlb.com/postseason.
