The Houston Astros and Washington Nationals are gathering names of people interested in purchasing tickets for Grapefruit League games for the inaugural season at the Ballpark of the Palm Beaches next year.
“We very much would like to know from folks who are interested so we can contact them when we are ready,’’ said Brady Ballard, the general manager of the $144 million facility scheduled to open in January on 160 acres south of 45th Street.
There’s no date yet for when ticket sales will be announced. But people interested in buying season and individual game tickets can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The teams are still working on launching a web site that will include the ballpark’s seating diagram and ticket prices. Those details will be announced later this year.
But members of the public already have been reaching out to the teams, which prompted the release of the email address to collect names.
“We are obviously excited about the initial interest. Maybe they’ve driven by the complex and are starting to see the changes taking place,’’ Ballard said.
“We are thankful. We value them as our future season ticket holders and future fans.’’
