If you think you bought Royals playoff tickets today in anticipation of K.C.'s likely berth, you should probably check again. This sounds ominous:
Royals Vice President of Community Affairs Toby tells 610 Sports Radio that a 'hiccup' took place with some credit card purchases. The team said people who did not receive a confirmation do not have tickets, even if they've been charged.
So these folks who shelled out for potential wild card and ALDS games are presumably screwed.
To be fair, the Royals haven't made the playoffs since 1985, four years before Tim Berners-Lee proposed the World Wide Web. The franchise does not have a lot of experience selling playoff tickets online.
This was the rare occasion it was better and easier to get your tickets in meatspace. And no one can say Royals fans didn't turn out for that:
H/t to Casey, who "guesses he'll wait another 29 years for playoff tickets."
