MANHATTAN, Kan. - K-State Athletics has announced season tickets for the 2014 K-State baseball season will go on sale starting Monday, November 4. The home slate for the defending Big 12 champions starts in late February.
Coming off a season in which it reached the NCAA Super Regionals for the first time in school history, K-State has made seating updates to Tointon Family Stadium. Cat Cushions have been added to all general admission bench seats in the stadium, providing a comfortable setting for all fans and adding to the Best Fan Experience in the Big 12.
The updated general admission Cat Cushion seating area features three affordable price levels. This season, adults can purchase Cat Cushion season tickets for only $100 per seat while K-State faculty and staff have the opportunity to purchase a season ticket for $75 each. Purchase four or more season tickets in the Cat Cushion seating area and the price for each seat drops to $50 for the entire season, which is over 30% off 2013 pricing and less than $2 per game.
For the 2014 season, all chairback seating will be sold on a reserved seat basis. Reserved chairback seating will be available in sections 1, 2, 6, 7 and 8 at Tointon Family Stadium for as little as $4 a game. General public season tickets in reserved chairbacks are $150 each, K-State faculty and staff season tickets are $125 each, and fans that purchase four or more season tickets receive a price of $100 per seat.
To purchase season tickets through the Athletics Ticket Office, fans can visit kstatesports.com/tickets, call toll free 1-800-221-CATS (2287) or purchase in-person at Bramlage Coliseum.
Fans that purchase by the Early Bird Deadline of Friday, December 13 will receive one commemorative 2013 Big 12 Championship coin per account, recognizing K-State's first conference title in 80 years. Also, the $10 order processing fee will be waived for each account that purchases by the Early Bird Deadline.
The Priority Deadline is Friday, January 24, which means fans that purchase their season tickets by this date will receive seating priority, based on Ahearn Fund priority point order.
The 2013 season was thrilling for K-State baseball and its fans in many ways. The Wildcats not only won a school-record 45 games, but they also posted 26 wins at home - tied for the third-most in program history. Two series drew the second and third-highest attendance figures in Tointon Family Stadium history and fans in Manhattan witnessed the Wildcats win the Big 12 title on their home field. Tointon Family Stadium also hosted its first regional, drawing over-capacity crowds that watched the Wildcats capture a perfect 3-0 record en route to the school's first trip to a NCAA Super Regional.
The 2014 squad, led by 2009 and 2013 Big 12 Coach of the Year Brad Hill, features many key returnees from last year's unprecedented postseason run. Ross Kivett, 2013 All-American and Big 12 Player of the Year, returns for his senior season and will be joined by fellow All-Big 12 infielders Shane Conlon and Austin Fisher. Catcher and Manhattan native Blair DeBord returns as well, serving as the battery mate for a pitching staff highlighted by Big 12 Freshman of the Year Jake Matthys. In addition to 19 letterwinners from last year, two redshirt freshmen and 13 other newcomers will look to help the Wildcats replicate and improve upon their success from 2013.
The complete 2014 schedule will be released at a later date.
