TORONTO – To fuel more playoff anticipation, the Toronto Blue Jays announced postseason tickets will go on sale Wednesday for season-ticket holders.

As of Tuesday morning, the Blue Jays are currently tied with the New York Yankees for first in the American League East and hold a 4.5 game lead over the Texas Rangers in the Wild Card race.

As Sportsnet’s Barry Davis points out, Flex-pack holders will follow in the ticket queue before the general public will have an opportunity to buy tickets in mid-September.

According to the Jays website, tickets start at $50 for 500 level outfield for Wild Card and Division Series. Tickets for “in the action” zone are $425 each.

However, tickets will be sold only in strips, meaning a fan must purchase tickets to all home games of the series.

A post-season run for the Jays will pose a problem for the Toronto Argonauts.

The CFL team had made a contingency plan just in case the red-hot Blue Jays make it to October.

The Argos are scheduled to play four October home games at Rogers Centre and five of their final six regular-season contests there. That includes an Oct. 6 matchup versus the Ottawa Redblacks, which would be the same night of an American League wild-card game.

Argos president Chris Rudge said if the Blue Jays reached the World Series, CFL games scheduled for Oct. 17 and Oct. 23 would also be displaced.

Rudge said in the event of a schedule conflict, the Argos have reached out to a number of venues to host their affected home games. They include Tim Hortons Field in Hamilton, the University of Toronto, Queen’s University in Kingston, Ont., York University in Toronto, the University of Guelph and the University of Western Ontario in London, Ont., as well as the possibility of both Calgary and Montreal hosting Toronto.
