You shouldn't have any issues getting general admission tickets. The bigger problem there is that you'll have to wait in the lines for a while (sometimes 1-2 hours or maybe even longer). The "bleacher bums" are a lively bunch but I prefer to get reserved seats. Generally, I don't care what games I go to and I haven't had issues getting tickets. If you want reserved seats, your best bet is to go to Ticket Master the minute they go on sale (usually sometime in April), select a game and look for the best seats available. I went to game four and game 12 this year and the seats were pretty good. Tickets were $20 each. The reserved seats go quickly and will sell out the same day. The stadium does release something like 1,000 tickets on the morning of the game but you'll have to fight the crowds for that as well.

The CWS started a site to sell tickets (https://teamexchange.ticketmaster.co...l=EN&team=ncaa) so you can always check there. Otherwise, walk up to the stadium and take your chances with the scalpers and you should be able to talk them down.

Parking is always a pain and I've decided to take shuttles or the bust the last few years. I can't wait until it moves downtown so you can park in a lot of on the street and visit the bars/restaraunts on the way rather than walking in somebody's neihborhood. JD Tucker's and The Stadium Club offer a shuttle for a $5 purchase. A few the other bars offer something similiar. Usually, the shuttles consist of drunk college kids or out of towners but they can be entertaining.

Any other questions, let me know.

Always start at the ticket booth. Reserved tickets are often turned in just before a game. After that, it's the scalpers.
