The A's still have a game to win, but that hasn't stopped the team from announcing that the tarps in the third deck will be removed for any more postseason games played in Oakland.For the tarps to be taken down, the A's will need to beat the Detroit Tigers in Game 5 of the American League Division Series. The A's announced that increasing ticket sales and future projections led them to open 11,698 seats for sale for potential ALCS games in Oakland.REWIND: Report -- Team may remove tarps if A's advance
This has been a sensational year for the Athletics and for our fans, A's owner and managing partner Lew Wolff said. We are thrilled with the tremendous outpouring of fan support. According to the A's, the total capacity for ALCS and World Series games in Oakland would be 47,505 fans.Low attendance figures led the A's to start covering empty seats in the upper deck starting in 2006, which also happens to be the last time Oakland hosted a playoff game.
