Charlotte Stone Crabs Playoff Tickets on Sale Tomorrow

Charlotte Stone Crabs[Via email from the Charlotte Stone Crabs' Marketing Manager Jonathan Gantt.]

Tickets for the potential, first-ever Charlotte Stone Crabs playoff games go on sale to the general public at the Charlotte Sports Park box office tomorrow, Thursday, August 27, at 9:00 a.m.

If the Stone Crabs make the playoffs, then Game 1 of the Florida State League Division Series would be played against the I-75 division rival Fort Myers Miracle at 7:05 p.m. on Tuesday, September 8, at Charlotte Sports Park. The FSL South division also owns home field advantage for the FSL Championship Series, so if the Stone Crabs advance to the Championship, they would host Games 3-5 from September 13-15.

The Stone Crabs are currently in a tight playoff race but have not yet clinched a playoff spot. The Miracle earned a playoff berth after winning the first half division crown and are currently in first place in the second half standings. If Fort Myers wins both halves, the team with the second best overall season record will be awarded a wild card spot, and Charlotte currently holds a 6 ½ game lead over the St. Lucie Mets for the second best overall record in the FSL South division with 12 games left to play.

Playoff tickets, like regular season tickets, start at just $5 and can be purchased by calling 941-206-HITS or visiting the Charlotte Sports Park box office. The operating hours for the box office are as follows:

Monday-Friday: 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Saturday: 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
Sunday: Closed.

For more information, please call 941-206-HITS (4487) or visit


  1. I would encourage Stone Crabs fans to get their playoff tickets. Reason being if the majority of this years Hot Rods are in Charlotte next year there will be no playoffs.

  2. Whoever thought that would be true.
    I, as well as many others, thought Bowling Green would/should walk away with their league championship...Great hitters came from Hudson Valley combined with great pitching from Hudson Valley and Princeton. What happened??? So much for pre-season predictions.

  3. Have to admit I'm another one who thought BG would dominate the Sally Southern division. But I disagree about Charlotte next year, how can you not expect good things with a rotation of Moore/Barnese/Cruz/Andujar/De Los Santos? Now the offense...

  4. I would not really use this years results as a projection of next season. There is a lot of talent in Bowling Green and the coaching staff (should it remain the same) at Charlotte has been a big factor as to the success of this season's Stone Crabs. So the combination of the two should make for an interesting season.

    Like I said before, this season the Stone Crabs have played as a team and that has helped them get as far as they have. This is supported by the coaching staff and will be the same regardless of who is on the playing field.

  5. Jim and Doug- I agree with both of you.The coaching staff at Charlotte is doing a wonderful job. I am anxious to see what those coaches will do with the very talented group of Bowling Green players in 2010. (Something at BG this year just didn't click...they should have been a super team.) Here's to next year!
