The countdown is on for the 2017 baseball season! The first signs of spring are appearing in the baseball world, as pitchers and catchers reported for spring training yesterday, and the Whitecaps front office is getting ready to put tickets on sale for the 24th season of baseball at Fifth Third Ballpark.

Today, Tuesday, February 14, tickets for the Safeco Insurance 4Topps tables and tickets for the 2017 Opening Day Bash will go on sale to the public.

The Safeco Insurance 4Topps include four swivel chairs at a rounded table behind home plate, with exclusive wait service so you don’t have to wait in concessions stand lines. Tickets for Safeco Insurance 4Topps tables are $110, and all dates on the 2017 schedule will be available for sale today, February 14. The 4Topps area was expanded to a total of 30 tables a year ago due to popular demand but continues to sell out, so fans are encouraged to order their 4Topps tickets early.
