The Pittsburgh Pirates postseason invoice has arrived!  The Bucs who are looking up at the St. Louis Cardinals and Milwaukee Brewers in the National League Central, sent out postseason ticket invoices to all season-ticket holders this week.

Last season, the post season invoice was met with utter joy.  This season, it was more like a gulp.

Fans with full season plans are given the option to purchase tickets to all potential home playoff games at PNC Park.   The invoice features a slick promo highlight video with the BE HERE tagline at the end.

We don’t have all the prices for each section, but our ticket invoice was for $3100.

Interestingly, the Baltimore Orioles submit slightly different invoices to their full season ticket holders, but ones that, it can be argued are more reasonable. Orioles season plan holders can also pay their invoice in half and the remainder if the Orioles advance in the postseason.

The Pirates have offered a payment plan, like the Baltimore Orioles, did.  Apologies to the Pirates.

In fact, the Bucs go one step further by adding this sentence to their invoice, which seems a little bit funny to me.  (But now I realize why I never received a refund check last year, simply a credit for the 2014 season.)

"If you wish to receive a refund for the Postseason games in your strip that were not played, you must submit a request in writing by December 1, 2014. Otherwise all credits will be applied towards your 2015 season ticket plan."

Read all the print.  Go Bucs.
