How do you turn two baseball tickets into three?

    The wife and I had already been kicking around the idea of catching the Braves-Reds game Saturday in Atlanta. As luck would have it, I managed to snag a free pair from the local sports talk station in town yesterday. Only issue is, little 'hack is coming too and needs his own ticket. He's 5 now, and sitting in our lap isn't realistic anymore.

    How exactly do I get three seats together? Ticketmaster (at least online) is useless for this, and I didn't see a direct number to the Braves box office on their Web site (just one for TM again). I'd like to either buy a seat next to the two I have or (more likely) trade those two in for two of equal value, plus buy a third next to them. But how do I get to a human being to acomplish this?

    The only thing I can think of is trade with a scalper and hope for the best.

    Try trading on craigslist or with a scalper.

    At worst, buy a single ticket somewhere and just sit together anyway. The Braves don't sell out playoff games, surely you can find three seats somewhere in the stadium.

    Well, first you get a male baseball ticket and a female baseball ticket and when they love each other so much, you get a baby baseball ticket. Uh, sorry.

    I don't know. I'd suggest calling the team and speaking to a real live human being. Hopefully they'll be able to help.

    Fuck it, just give the kid a Mike's Hard Lemonade and he'll pass out until you get back from the game. :D

    Buy three single tickets boom boom boom. They should be next to each other.

    Then he has five tickets. That's no good.

    Huh? If you buy three tickets one at a time, you have three tickets.

    But he already has the free pair.
     
  10. and, by the way, if you go to a box office and order one single, then another single, then another single... they ain't going to be together

    Oh yea! I never did correctly answer that riddle about how many wives the man going to St. Ives had.

    Anyway, you will have to call the Braves directly and see if there are seats available on either side of the ones you have. That means you'll have to get the tix (or seat locations) from the radio station beforehand. A lot of times you pick them up at will call.

    Here's a number for the Braves off their website: (404) 522-7630

    My guess is there won't be other tix available beside those seats cuz they probably give away an entire block of seats.
