Toronto Blue Jays home-opener tickets sell out in 1 hour

Tickets for the Toronto Blue Jays 2012 season went on sale Friday and the team’s home-opener against the Boston Red Sox is already sold out.

Single-game tickets went on sale at 10 a.m. and about an hour later, all the tickets for the home opener were gone. Tickets for the other two games in the three-game series are still available.

The Jays said that some tickets were held back for players and league officials, and if those tickets are returned to the club, they’ll go up for sale too.

The Jays start their season in Cleveland, taking on the Indians on April 5.

The Blue Jays finished fourth in the American League East last season with an 81-81 record.

Team president Paul Beeston said he expects the Jays to make the post-season two or three times in the next five years.

During a “state of the franchise” speech last month, Beeston wouldn’t say when he expects the playoff breakthrough to occur, but he thinks the foundation is in place for the team to take the next step.
