Cubs individual game tickets go on sale on Friday at 10:00 a.m. CST, which means it's almost time for the annual tradition of calling in sick or hijacking unused computers throughout the office in the hopes of snagging some seats.

Once again, the Cubs will be using the "virtual waiting room" set-up. The waiting room will open to aspiring ticket buyers at 9:30 a.m. People will be selected randomly to purchase tickets.

In order to purchase, people must set up an account ahead of time. As in the past, there are ticket limits:

  • There will be a limit of six tickets per game.
  • Internet customers will be limited to one game per transaction of up to six (6) tickets.
  • Internet customers will be limited to a maximum of forty-two (42) tickets for the weekend.

Tickets can also be purchased in-person at the Wrigley Field box office starting at 8:00 a.m. CST. If you want to get them at Wrigley, you'd better head over to the park and grab a wristband before 10:00 p.m. tonight. A random number will determine the order that tickets will be sold, chosen about 6:00 a.m. tomorrow and announced over WGN Radio (720AM). So get your bracelet today, set the clock radio alarm for 6:00 a.m., and if you've got a low number then get the hell out of bed and get over to Wrigley!

There's also the order-by-phone option. Starting at 10:00 a.m., phone orders can be made by calling 1-800-THE-CUBS.

Ryan Dempster promises that this is the Cubs' year, and you don't want to miss out on having a chance to see them play in the year they'll finally win the World Series, right?
