Getting Started & Verifying Ticketing and Loyalty Accounts

Accessing the MLB Ballpark app

The MLB Ballpark app can be downloaded directly from the App Store on Apple devices or Google Play on Android devices. Accessing content in the MLB Ballpark app requires an MLB or a Club.com account. If you do not have an existing account, you can create a new account during initial app login.

MLB Ballpark Digital Ticketing

The MLB Ballpark app's digital ticketing features allow you to purchase new tickets, present existing tickets at the ballpark for entry, and forward tickets to friends and family, or receive tickets. These features can be found in the “Tickets” tab, "Wallet" section or on the “Home” tab for upcoming games. For additional information on how to set up and use the new MLB Ballpark app digital ticketing features, please refer to the "MLB Ballpark Digital Ticketing" section below.

For any "Wallet," account, tickets, or related support inquiries, please utilize the MLB Ballpark app Digital Assistant for step-by-step assistance.

If you are a member of a participating Club's loyalty program, you can access that program by navigating to the Team tab and tapping on your team's Loyalty program module. The location of this module card may differ from Club to Club based on how that Club has configured its Team tab.

If you are signed in with your MLB/Club.com account associated with the Loyalty program, you will be taken to a digital membership card, where you can view your account information, benefits, and stored value (eCash, if applicable). If your accounts are not successfully linked, you will be provided with Club-specific contact information for assistance.

Why verify my email?

Through the MLB Ballpark app, fans can access and manage their tickets, whether purchased or received through a ticket forward, once you have confirmed ownership of the associated email account.

How do I verify my email?

  1. Fans need to login with an MLB account the first time they open the MLB Ballpark app. If you don’t have an existing MLB account, you can create one as part of the initial onboarding process.
  2. Fans who view the “Home” or “Tickets” tabs without a verified account will be prompted to “Please verify your email address or refresh your tickets”.
  3. Fans can then “Send” or “Resend” the verification email to their MLB account OR enter the email address associated with tickets to verify to access those tickets.
  4. An email will be sent to that email address asking you to verify that address by tapping on a one-time link.

How can I remove a verified account?

During the verification process, if you’ve added an incorrect email address OR would like to remove a secondary account that you’ve previously linked, you can do so within the app.

  1. Go to the “Home” tab in the bottom navigation bar, and click on the avatar icon or your initials in the upper left-hand corner to go to your Profile.

  3. Fans can tap on “Remove”, which will unlock all verified emails with a minus button next to each.
  4. Tap on the minus icon next to the email address(es) you wish to remove.
  5. This will bring up a “Remove” button at the right of the email address. Tap “Remove” to verify the change.

Important Note: While you can remove secondary email addresses, users cannot remove their primary email address (the one used to login to the MLB Ballpark app).

Click the “Forward Tickets” button at the bottom of the screen, which will enable you to select the ticket(s) you wish to transfer to someone else.

However, if you received the ticket as the result of a forward, you can revoke the ticket forward at any time up until the ticket is scanned for entry, provided that the forward recipient does not forward the ticket to someone else. The original ticket purchaser, however, retains perpetual rights to revoke the ticket back to him/herself, regardless of whether it has been subsequently forwarded, up until the ticket is scanned for entry.

To see the current status of all of your tickets, go to the “Wallet” section of the “Tickets” tab and tap on the Event card to see the status of forwarded tickets, e.g., when pending or accepted by the recipient. You can also cancel a pending Forward by clicking on “Cancel” to the right of the ticket, or you can recall an accepted ticket by clicking on “Recall” to the right of the ticket.

To track all of your sent and received forwards, go to the “Tickets” tab and tap on the ticket forward icon in the top right-hand corner of the screen.
