The Oakland Athletics are lifting the tarps from the view level sections of the Oakland Coliseum for the playoffs. Postseason tickets went on sale Tuesday, and a team spokesperson tells CSN California the third deck will be open for business.

The area of the stadium over the Eastside Club dubbed “Mt. Davis” will remain covered during the playoff games.

Tickets are still available, but the team’s marketing people say they are going fast. The tarps are expected to remain off for the duration of the postseason.

Last season, the A’s chose to leave the tarps on for the American League Division Series, but said they would remove them if the team advanced to the American League Championship Series.

Quick Facts: 

New Capacity: 48,146

View level seats recently opened for postseason: 12,000.
