MLB Ticket Delivery Types

The days of purchasing a physical ticket are slowly being phased out and replaced with various forms of electronic tickets. The primary ticket stock types being used by Major League Baseball today include: mobile delivery tickets (aka: digital tickets), which include QR codes being saved on mobile phone and electronic tickets, which may be Instant Download or email delivery.

Electronic tickets are provided by an email link that enables you to download and print the tickets from your home or office. This download is usually in a .pdf format and must be printed on paper to guarantee admittance to the event.

Many MLB stadiums still accept these print at home tickets, however teams are fast moving toward mobile tickets (aka: digital ticketing). These are similar to electronic tickets in that you will receive a .pdf (or QR code), but now the ticket file should be saved on your phone. The gate will scan that image file right off your smart phone to gain entry into the game.

Often times to get the QR code image, you will be required to download and register on a venue’s website or app. Once you setup an account on their venue (or team’s) platform, then the tickets will be sent to you.
