A's offer tickets by mobile phone

Submitted By Eric Young- San Francisco Business Times

The Oakland A's said fans will be able to download tickets to their cell phones beginning Friday.

As part of a deal with Major League Baseball's Internet unit, the A's said fans who buy tickets at Oaklandathletics.com can choose to have the bar coded ticket delivered to a mobile phone. The bar code is then scanned at a gate at McAfee Coliseum.

The A's are one of three Major League Baseball teams to use the technology this season, including the Washington Nationals and Pittsburgh Pirates. Tickets.com, a subsidiary of MLB Advanced Media LLP, provides the technology for the system.
