Toronto has caught Blue Jays fever.

On Thursday morning at 10 a.m., the Toronto Blue Jays started selling tickets to the American League Championship Series.

At 10:30 a.m., SVP of Business Operations for the Blue Jays Stephen Brooks sent a tweet out saying that 80,000 fans were in queue to purchase tickets. Keep in mind that the Rogers Centre holds 54,000 at capacity.

By 11:18 a.m. they were sold out.

There's no guarantee that these tickets will even be used — the Jays will have to get through the suddenly-hot Texas Rangers in the ALDS to advance. But if they do, you can count on Toronto fans filling the stadium to the brim as they make their first playoff appearance since 1993.
