If you buy a grandstand ticket that means you will have a seat in the new aluminum bleacher section. General admission tickets will consist of bringing your own chair and sitting on the concrete area. Grandstand tickets will be limited, so if you are interested in sitting in the new aluminum bleacher section I strongly encourage people to purchase their tickets online.
