Gone were the sleeping bags and lawn chairs. Eager Angel fans held no camp-out to wait in line for tickets to the American League playoffs.
The overnight gear was replaced by an orange plastic wristband.
Each bracelet marked a fan's position in the rush for seats to the Angels-Red Sox match-up at Anaheim Stadium on Oct. 10, 11 and 12.
The Angel's front office came up with the idea a year ago, when the Angels were contending for the division title but were beaten out by the eventual world champions, the Kansas City Royals.
Employees at the stadium began handing out the wristbands Monday to fans who showed up wanting tickets. The fans were instructed to return Wednesday in the order designated by the numbers on their wristbands.
