For the first time, Healdsburg's "Night with the Giants" is sold out

No extra tickets this year, organizer says.

If you thought that there was plenty of time left to get a ticket for next Wednesday's Sixth Annual ," you thought wrong.

has sold out all 220 tickets for the special reserved seats at the 2010 World Series Champions' June 22 game against the Minnesota Twins  at AT&T Park in San Francisco -- and there is a waiting list for 30 more.

"We've never had this happen before," said Booster Club ticket manager Richard Burgarske. "If they don't win a World Series this year, it may not happen again."

Burgarske said HHS Booster Club, which has run the event for the past three years after taking it over from three-year coodinator used to be able to call the Giants ticket office and get extra tickets if necessary.

"They said they're not doing that this year," he said. "Those tickets are too hot a property and they said they don't have any extras."

Also, in the past, the Giants would send over extra tickets -- between 300 or 400 -- and the Boosters would return any unsold tickets to the Giants to resell.

"Nope, that didn't happen either this year," Bugarske said.

Bugarske said he has a waiting list for 30 tickets, but he's telling people "don't hold your breath," he said. The remaining tickets disappeared just in the last two or three days, he said.

"I gave up my own ticket to somebody else," Bugarske said, adding that he had a number of family commitments that day that would have made attendance a challenge. "I've been there many times, so I thought I'd give it to other folks who would enjoy it."

Healdsburg attendees will have reserve seats behind home plate. In addition, several special activities, such as on-field events during breaks, will include Healdsburg participants, Burgarske said.
