Major League Baseball officials have announced that tickets for their first-of-its-kind “MLB In Omaha” game will go on sale this week.
Tickets for the game between the Kansas City Royals and the Detroit Tigers will be available publicly on Friday, March 29th. The tickets will be sold online only starting at 10:00 AM on Friday. Fans can purchase the tickets at:
- Ticketmaster as a limited availability of tickets launches,
There is a four-ticket limit per individual. The game will be held on Thursday, June 13th at 7:05 PM at TD Ameritrade Park in downtown Omaha.
Honoring Omaha’s baseball tradition, the first Major League game ever held in Nebraska will be televised nationally by ESPN. The game comes one day before the Opening Celebration Day of the 2019 NCAA Men’s College World Series and two days before the event’s first game.
The Royals and the Storm Chasers, who helped make this event possible, share the game’s longest relationship between a Major League Club and its Triple-A affiliate, spanning the careers of Hall of Famer George Brett and other Kansas City greats since its franchise inception in 1969. Thirty-two Major League players all-time were born in Omaha, including Hall of Famers Bob Gibson and Wade Boggs, and more than 100 all-time were born in Nebraska, including Hall of Famer Richie Ashburn and Royals’ three-time All-Star outfielder Alex Gordon, a Lincoln native and a product of the University of Nebraska.
