A limited number of home playoff game tickets went on sale Friday morning for Dodgers Twitter followers and other fans lined up early outside the Dodger Stadium ticket office.

The first fan in line arrived at about 4 a.m. Tickets to the first two postseason games sold out before noon.

At 9 a.m., followers of the @Dodgers account received a code to buy a limited number of tickets available before they go on sale to those not following the Dodgers.

"We obviously want to reward our best fans -- not just season ticket holders --  but people that follow us all year on Twitter or Facebook," Dodgers Vice-President for Ticket Sales, David Siegel told KPCC.

He did not specify the number of pre-sale tickets, all of which were sold.

Tickets for the National League Division Series were available at the Dodgers web site, starting at 10 a.m. The tickets are priced from $36 to $166.

The series is scheduled to begin Oct. 3. Schedule details might not be available until the end of the regular season on Sept. 29.

The Dodgers earned their first NL West Division title since 2009 by defeating the Arizona Diamondbacks Thursday in Phoenix.
