The Philadelphia Phillies' decision to call up the number one pick from last year's draft is giving the team’s sluggish ticket sales a much needed boost.
John Weber, the Phillies vice president of sales and ticket operations, said the team has sold about 3,000 extra tickets for Tuesday night when rookie pitcher Aaron Nola will take the mound in his Major League debut.
Weber said he expects the number to climb even higher with walk-up sales tomorrow.
