Individual game tickets for the Albuquerque Isotopes 2018 season will go on sale to the public next Friday, March 2, starting at 10 a.m. Fans can make their purchases at the Isotopes Park Box Office, online at abqisotopes.com or by phone at (800) 745-3000.
Albuquerque’s 70-game home campaign will commence on Tuesday, April 10 with a seven-game homestand against the Las Vegas 51s and Salt Lake Bees. The Pacific Coast League will feature a 140-game schedule in 2018, two fewer than 2017.
Individual game ticket prices remain unchanged from the 2017 season.
New in 2018 is the ability to make individual game tickets as flexible as fans’ ever-changing schedules by selecting the “Exchangeable Ticket” option when purchasing tickets. For an additional $5 charge per ticket, fans can purchase a fully-transferable ticket that can be exchanged for a ticket of equal or lesser value, based on availability, for any 2018 regular season, non-restricted home game (excludes April 10 and July 4).
“Exchangeable Tickets” are fully transferable at any time prior to or after the game date, provided the ticket has not yet been used. Transfers must take place exclusively at the Isotopes Park Box Office. There are no refunds/credits given for tickets exchanged for a lesser value. Seating is based on availability at the time of exchange at the Isotopes Park Box Office. Tickets must be transferred within the same season and cannot be transferred to another season.
Highlights of the 2018 home schedule include 15 scheduled fireworks dates, 33 weekend dates, including each month featuring two weekend series, and home games on Father’s Day (June 17) and Independence Day (July 4).
A majority of the Isotopes’ Monday through Saturday night home games will now start at 6:35 p.m., a slight change from the 7:05 p.m. start time in previous years.
“We are happy to be able to accommodate the fans’ requests to start games earlier throughout the season,” said Isotopes general manager John Traub. “The 6:35 p.m. start times allow fans to enjoy more baseball under natural light while allowing fans to get home earlier.”
The Isotopes promotional schedule is tentatively scheduled to be released this Monday.
