2018 Season Ticket plan gets priority access to potential 2017 ALCS, World Series presales

Fans can unlock priority access to potential 2017 ALCS and World Series presales at Progressive Field by purchasing a 2018 Season Ticket package.

Those fans who place a deposit, select seats and either pay in full or are on an approved payment plan will have access to potential 2017 ALCS and World Series presales before the general public.

NEW: Indians, StubHub align for secure secondary purchasing

While remains the best option for purchasing Indians tickets, the Indians have aligned exclusively with StubHub, the secondary ticket market leader and official re-seller of MLB.

For potential 2017 Postseason sellouts, fans who are unable to secure tickets from are encouraged to use StubHub for the most secure purchase experience.

“StubHub provides superior and consistent service for our fans, along with the most secure purchasing option on the secondary market,” said Tim Salcer, Indians Vice President of Sales and Service. “This requirement will protect our fans who must purchase on the secondary market.”

Under this agreement, any fan who re-sells Indians Postseason tickets on a secondary site other than StubHub – and the fan who purchases those tickets – are subject to have their tickets revoked or the tickets’ bar codes canceled.

Reds, catcher Tucker Barnhart agree to 4-year contract extension

Tucker Barnhart in 2016 By Editosaurus - Own work, CC0, https

Cincinnati Reds President of Baseball Operations, General Manager Dick Williams recently announced that C Tucker Barnhart has agreed to terms on a 4-year contract extension through the 2021 season with a club option for 2022. A press conference will be held at 2:30 p.m. today in the field level interview room at Great American Ball Park.

Barnhart, 26, following this season would have been eligible for arbitration for the first time while under team control through 2020.

“Tucker has made us proud on the field with his play and off the field with his community involvement,” Williams said. “He worked his way up through our system, improving every step of the way, and has established himself as an elite defensive catcher and a productive offensive player. Switch hitting catchers who can impact the game defensively are tough to find.”

The 10th-round pick in the 2009 first-year player draft has been the Reds’ starting catcher since May 2016, when Devin Mesoraco suffered a season-ending shoulder injury. Barnhart led the club with 96 starts behind the plate last season while making 98 starts so far this year.

Over the course of the last 2 seasons, Barnhart has built a reputation as one of the best catchers in the Major Leagues. This year he leads all Major League catchers in fielding percentage, caught stealings and assists, and his 2.9 Defensive WAR leads all National League players while ranking second among all Major League position players. As calculated by Fangraphs, Barnhart leads all Major League catchers in defensive value and in defensive runs saved.

With just 1 error this season, Barnhart has followed a career-high 52-game errorless streak with an active 50-game errorless streak. Over the last 2 seasons, he has thrown out 39 percent of the baserunners attempting to steal, including 44 percent this season to lead the National League and rank second in the majors.

Offensively, Barnhart is on pace to establish career highs in batting average, on-base percentage and slugging percentage and is nearing career bests in games played, hits, doubles, HR and RBI.

He is a native of nearby Brownsburg, Indiana and a candidate to win his second consecutive Joe Nuxhall Good Guy Award in voting of the local chapter of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America.
