The Baltimore Orioles, for the first time in 15 years, are getting ready to sell playoff tickets.

The Orioles plan to send out invoices to season-ticket holders Thursday for the 2012 playoffs. Single-game playoff tickets for non-season ticket holders will go on sale in mid-September, said Greg Bader, a spokesman for the Orioles.

The Orioles are 67-56 as of Tuesday night and hold the second wild-card spot in the American League.

?We?re going about this as if we are going to be in the playoffs,? he said. ?And we are 100 percent ready when and if that day comes.?

Beginning this season, two wild-card teams will play a one-game playoff with the winner gaining entry into the divisional round.

Fans with full season plans are being given the option to buy tickets for all of the potential 10 home playoff games at Oriole Park at Camden Yards this fall.

Tickets for the wild card and divisional round games cost about the same as a prime regular season game, Bader said. Championship series tickets would cost about 50 percent more than prime regular season games, and World Series tickets could cost fans three times as much as regular season prime matchups.

?We made the suggestion based on what we believe is appropriate,? Bader said. ?We made every effort to keep the pricing on the low end.?

The Orioles, who suggested the pricing for postseason tickets to Major League Baseball, do not plan to add any additional seats in the stadium if they make the playoffs, Bader said. Oriole Park at Camden Yards holds 45,971 fans.

About 90 percent of MLB season ticket holders usually purchase playoff tickets, Bader said. Once the team figures out how many tickets it needs to block off for season-ticket holders and the league itself, the rest will go on sale to the general public.
