BALTIMORE -- People across Maryland are proudly wearing their orange and black to support the Orioles as the team makes a final push during the regular season.

Many fans are ready to watch the O's make a run in the playoffs. In fact, playoff tickets went on sale this morning.

The Orioles have already clinched a spot in the playoffs, but they have a chance to be crowned champions of the American League East Division for the first time since 2014. O's fans are excited and ready for October baseball.

"I'm looking forward to it. Let's go O's," Otterbein resident Jay Hood said.

Fans say they are excited for the future after the Orioles had a stellar season.

"This season has been so much fun," Hood said. "The team has been really fun to watch and I couldn't be more excited to be back in the postseason."

The Orioles' magic number, as of Thursday, is seven.

Fans are feeling excited about the odds that the O's will continue to move toward the playoffs.

"I didn't buy any games for Wild Card," Hood said. 'I just bought the ALDS and the ALCS tickets, and that was it. I'm feeling really confident right now."

Many people agree that there is something about this team that is special.

"Brandon [Hyde] is a great motivator," Hood said. "I feel like he gets the best out of his players. In years past, we didn't have good enough players for him to work with. This time, we have his motivation and players with skills to get us all the way."

The MLB regular season ends on Oct. 1 and the playoffs begin on Oct. 3.

There is a limit of six tickets per game.

If any games aren't played -- meaning if the Orioles lose -- tickets will be automatically refunded within 2-3 weeks of the end of the postseason, the team said. 

The Orioles clinched a postseason berth on Sunday.  

Even though the Orioles lost on Wednesday afternoon to Houston, their magic number to clinch the AL East was reduced to seven because Tampa Bay lost to the Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday night by a score of 8-3.

The Orioles (95-57) travel to Cleveland for four games starting Thursday night.
