If you don't already have tickets for tomorrow's Diamondbacks/Dodgers game, you're out of the luck. The game is sold out and fans are encouraged to arrive early to avoid lines.
Details from the press release after the jump:
Friday’s game between the Los Angeles Dodgers and Arizona Diamondbacks is sold out, with in excess of 10,000 tickets purchased. The charity game, benefiting the Tucson Together Fund, starts at 1:05 PM with gates opening at 11:00 AM. There will not be any tickets put on sale the day of the game.
Fans are strongly encouraged to arrive early, with high volumes of incoming traffic expected. Please see the attached map, showing the traffic control plan for tomorrow’s sold out game. The will call booth opens at 10:00 AM. Please bring a photo ID if you are picking up tickets.
“We are thrilled by the Tucson community’s support of this game and the Tucson Together Fund,” said Mike Feder, Tucson Padres Vice President and General Manager. “To ensure everyone is present for the pregame ceremonies and the first inning, we strongly suggest leaving early to limit traffic backup.”
There are two entrances to the ballpark. You may access the stadium at Ajo Way and Forgeus Ave. or use the entrance located at Country Club Rd. and E. Milber St. Both entrances will bring you into the main parking lot of Kino Stadium. Once you arrive at the parking lot, the correct change is always appreciated and it will help the attendants expedite the process. Parking fees are $5 per car or $10 for large commercial vehicles.
All hospital-bound traffic, except emergency vehicles, will enter the Kino Hospital on Bentley from Ajo Way, just east of the stadium entrance. Emergency vehicles will enter the hospital at the stadium entrance on Forgeus and will be assisted by the Sheriff’s Department traffic detail.
