As the two-time defending Atlantic League champion York Revolution draw closer to clinching a berth in the 2012 Atlantic League playoffs, the organization will put individual playoff game tickets on sale at noon Tuesday for the five different potential home dates listed below.
It is likely that the Revs will make the playoffs based on their current record of 68-58, and if so, it's known which dates the Revs will be home at Sovereign Bank Stadium during the playoffs. As of Monday, the Revs own a seven game lead over Somerset in the wild-card race.
It is a near certainty that York will play Freedom Division rival Lancaster in the first round of the playoffs and host games 3, 4 (if necessary) and 5 (if necessary) in the best-of-5 series. If the Revs advance past the Barnstormers and into the championship series, the Revs will host games 1 and 2 of the Atlantic League Championship Series before the series would finish at the home of the Liberty Division champion. (Home-field advantage is alternated year-by-year between each division.)
The Revs are striving to become the first team to win three consecutive Atlantic League championships.
