The Orioles will play the Kansas City Royals in the American League Championship Series for a berth in the World Series.
The two teams will meet in Game 1 on Friday and Game 2 on Saturday at Camden Yards before moving to Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City for Games 3, 4 and 5 (if necessary). Games 6 and 7 would be at Camden Yards, if they're needed. All game times have yet to be announced.
Both teams completed a three-game sweep in the AL Division Series on Sunday. The Orioles beat the Detroit Tigers, 2-1, in the deciding game of their series, while the Royals routed the Los Angeles Angels, 8-3, in Game 3 to advance.
It's guaranteed that the AL winner will be playing in the World Series for the first time in at least 29 years. The Royals last advanced to -- and won -- the Fall Classic in 1985, while the Orioles' last appearance (and win) in the World Series was in 1983.
Fans who place a minimum $250 per seat deposit on a 2015 full or partial season-ticket plan by noon Monday will have a chance to buy ALCS tickets, and possibly other future postseason tickets, via an exclusive online-only presale Tuesday at 10 a.m.
A public sale for ALCS tickets will take place Thursday at noon, exclusively online at orioles.com/postseason. Availability is expected to be extremely limited, and a maximum of four tickets per ALCS game may be purchased.
