MANHATTAN, Kan. – With the 2013 Kansas State baseball season rapidly approaching, the season ticket priority seating deadline is set for this Friday.
By renewing or ordering season tickets by the Friday deadline, returning season ticket holders are guaranteed their same seat location. New ticket holders can use their athletic department priority points for seat assignments, including access to seats that open in the reserved chairback section, an area that is expected to sell out for the third straight season.
Season-ticket holders are entitled to special benefits as they will receive one Ahearn Fund Priority Point per season ticket purchased, the opportunity to purchase additional GA tickets to select games at a group rate, as well as an invitation to take part in Season Ticket Holder Appreciation Day.
Season tickets for the 2013 season begin at as little as $75, an affordable average of $2.42 per contest. Those season tickets, located in the GA bench area along the first and third baselines, are available for $75 for all purchases of four or more season tickets as well as youth, senior citizens, military personnel and K-State faculty and staff. General admission bench season tickets are $85 each for adults.
Reserved chairback seats in the lower bowl of the stadium in Sections 1 and 2, and Section 7 above the concourse behind home plate are priced at $125, a great value at about $4 per game. General admission chairback seating in Sections 6 and 8 above the concourse are available for $115 each. Four or more season tickets purchased together in all chairback sections are just $100 each.
The 31-game home schedule features nine games against teams that earned NCAA Regional berths in 2012 and a 19-game homestand to kick off the month of March. In addition, the Wildcats will host 12 Big 12 games this year, including three apiece against new conference members West Virginia and TCU.
Kansas State begins the 2013 season at The Citadel Memorial Challenge, February 15-17, in Charleston, S.C., before making a return trip to The Palmetto State for three games in Myrtle Beach. The Wildcats open the home slate and their 19-game homestand with a three-game series against Oakland, March 1-3.
