Akron Aeros Offer Complimentary Playoff Tickets

AKRON,
OH – Tickets for all potential Eastern League post-season games at Canal Park
will be complimentary to all fans, the Aeros announced today. These tickets
will be available beginning at 10:00 a.m. on Monday, August 9th and
fans have several different ways to purchase these tickets in person, over the
phone or online. The only fee for Aeros playoff tickets will be a $1
convenience charge for fans purchasing tickets online at www.akronaeros.com. The Aeros are the
defending 2009 EL Champions and have won the Southern Division post-season
title for five straight years.

As
of games completed Wednesday night, Akron sits slightly back of the playoff
race in the Eastern League’s new Western Division. The Aeros (56-53) are in
fourth place, one game behind Harrisburg, 3.5 games back of wild card-leading
Bowie Baysox and 7.5 games behind the first-place Altoona Curve. The top two
teams from the Eastern and Western Divisions will advance to the EL playoffs
beginning Wednesday, September 8th.

If
the Aeros capture second place in the Western Division, Akron would host the
third and fourth games of the divisional series. These games are tentatively
scheduled for Friday, September 10th and Saturday, September 11th
(if necessary) and would start at 7:05 p.m.

If
the Aeros manage to win the Western Division regular-season crown, the first
two and potentially last games of the divisional series would be at Canal Park
in downtown Akron. These contests are tentatively scheduled for Wednesday,
September 8th, Thursday September 9th and Sunday,
September 12th (if necessary), all beginning at 7:05 p.m.

Now,
should the Aeros once again advance to the Eastern League Championship Series
for a record-breaking sixth consecutive season, Akron would host the first two
games of the best-of-five series here at Canal Park. These two games would be
tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, September 14th and Wednesday,
September 15th against the Eastern Division post-season champion and
would both feature a 7:05 p.m. first pitch.

Fans
may purchase playoff tickets in person at Infield Outfitters, the official team
store of the Aeros, the Canal Park box offices, by telephone at 330-253-5153 or
toll-free at 1-800-97-AEROS, or online at www.akronaeros.com
with the $1 service charge included. Infield Outfitters is open from 9:00 a.m.
to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Saturday, along with
extended hours on game days.

Exchanges
are permissible, subject to availability, for all tickets of non-played divisional
series games for a ticket for the potential Eastern League Championship Series
games at Canal Park. There are no exchanges for the Championship Series games
and because these tickets are complimentary, there are no refunds and they hold
no cash value.

The Aeros hope to avoid a four-game series sweep at the hands of the
Altoona Curve tonight at 7:00 p.m. and end their five-game losing streak. Akron
Left-hander Kelvin De La Cruz (4-5, 4.73 ERA) hopes to spark a win and a
possible playoff run at Blair County Ballpark against Altoona lefty Tony Watson
(3-1, 2.90 ERA). Join Ken Carman for Thursday’s radio broadcast beginning at
6:45 p.m. on Fox Sports 1350 AM and at www.akronaeros.com. For more information,
please call the Aeros at (330) 253-5151.
