Anyone know when the all-star game or HR Derby tix will go on sale to the non-season ticket holding general public? I can't find anything on the Angels site, except for all-star celebration activities, which I'm not really interested in attending, except for the actual game or HR Derby. They are way too expensive on StubHub, etc...

Thanks guys for the feedback...I like using Barry's tickets, I have used them in the past, but I have a hard time justifying spending $500 plus per ticket. I think that I will take my chances and wait to see if I get selected for the drawing, if not maybe I will buy from Barry's closer to the game, hopefully the prices will go down.

Hey Junior- tickets are not on sale yet for the general public and as Doug said, it will be more of a "drawing", rather than an opportunity to just purchase. Your only option right now is to go with a ticket broker. Did you check out our friends at Barry's tickets? Probably around the same price as a stub hub but you get 10% off using the code "Ballpark". http://www.barrystickets.com/pro-baseball-tickets/mlb-allstar-game-...

If it's anything like the last two year's, the host team will have a link to pre-register for an opportunity to buy tickets. They'll have an electronic drawing from the emails, and those people will get links to buy via link. You won't see them actually go on-sale. So, I'd recommend signing up for the Angels email-solicitations.

Unfortunately, your best opportunity is to get in with someone who has season tickets (like I did in 2001) or buy them via scalper. If there's a bright side, the closer to the game you look, the more prices go down. Look on eBay for "Buy It Now" links, you'll see singles sometimes that way too if you're flying solo. This year could go one of two ways -- Angel Stadium doesn't have a lot of history, nor is it a great baseball town (sorry Angel fans) so tickets could be easier to find. The other side of the coin is that it's close to Disneyland, so there may be more people interested in going and combining their trip, which would drive up ticket prices. No happy medium there, eh? You'll get a pretty good idea of which way prices are going early on in the season when tickets are in hand.
