SAN FRANCISCO – The San Francisco Giants have announced that tickets to possible World Series games between the Giants and Anaheim Angels at Pacific Bell Park will go on sale to the general public on Wednesday morning. 

Tickets will be available for purchase only at the Pac Bell Park ticket office, through the Giants Web site,, or by phone at (510) 762-2277. Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. on Wednesday on a first-come, first-served basis. 

Larry Baer, Giants executive vice president and chief operating officer, said there will be 14,000 total tickets for all three World Series games available for sale. 

World Series ticket prices range from $60 to $145, with most of the tickets available for sale in the bleacher and view reserved sections. 

Fans will be allowed to purchase a maximum total of four World Series tickets. 

Fans purchasing tickets in person may pay with cash or Visa, MasterCard or Discover. Those buying tickets via the Internet must pay using a credit card. No personal checks will be accepted. 

Approximately 7,000 tickets, 50 percent of the tickets available, will be sold in person through the Pac Bell Park ticket office at Third and King streets. Hundreds of fans have already begun lining up today, Giants officials said. A total of 1,750 wristbands will be distributed to fans in line. A random number lottery system will then be used to determine the order of the line. 

The remaining 7,000 tickets will be available for purchase through the Giants Web site or by phone. 

If the Giants advance to the World Series, San Francisco would host Games 3 and 4 and, if necessary, Game 5, on Oct. 22, 23 and 24. Fans would be refunded for any unplayed games.
