SABR has reserved a block of tickets in the Skyline Deck and Home Plate View sections. In your registration packet, you will receive a "chit" for each game ticket you purchased. You will be able to redeem your chit for a game ticket in the Chase Room at the Marriott City Center anytime during the convention. If you do not care with whom you sit, you should turn your chit into your game ticket right away. But if you want to sit with a friend, wait to turn in your chits at the registration desk at the same time, thereby getting tickets next to one another.
