Re: print at home tickets
I've used the Print-at-Home both times I went this year. It worked fine. I was a bit uncomfortable the 1st time and was used to using the "hard ticket" method. But the ticket-taker grabbed the 8-1/2 x 11 sheet with the ticket printed on it, scanned the bar code and handed the whole thing back to me. The point that Red in Chicago mentions is not really a problem b/c you get the thing back. I folded mine up (in case an usher wanted to see it) and carried it in my back pocket. Ended up tossing it in the trash when I got home.
Only concern... if you order more than one ticket, then you have to trust your cohorts with this info. on their tickets (whoever pays when ordering on-line has their data on every ticket). I do not think the last 4-digits of a credit card is a big concern. A lot of companies use this same method when printing a receipt for a credit card purchase. And we'd all be shocked if we knew how many times our names (and other personal info.) gets sold and obtained w/out our knowledge in today's world. I would not be surprised if MLB did not use or sell your name and address in some fashion when you order tickets through their site.
Don't use it if you like to hang onto your ticket (or ticket stub) for sentimental reasons (or whatever reason). It is printed on a letter-sized sheet of paper and the ticket looking part of it is a lot bigger than the std. ticket... takes up almost 1/2 of the page.
Small market fan... always hoping, but never expecting.
