The Los Angeles Dodgers did it! On Thursday they won their first National League West title since 2009 and became the first team to clinch a postseason berth by defeating the Arizona Diamondbacks 7-6.

Which raises the question: How do I get postseason tickets?

The Dodgers announced they will be selling a limited number of tickets for the National League Division Series and National League Championship Series games starting Friday at 10 a.m.

The unspecified number of tickets will only be available online at dodgers.com/postseason.

Prices start at $36 for the National League Division Series and $71 for the National League Championship Series. 

Dodgers Vice-President for Ticket Sales, David Siegel - a very popular man right now – won’t specify the exact number of tickets going on sale. But don’t count on many.

“We are at a historic high of season tickets this year," Siegel said. "So obviously that cuts into what we have for sale for the general public.”

You can increase your chances - at least a little - if you follow the team on Twitter.

Dodger Twitter followers get an exclusive window — from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. on Friday — to purchase tickets before the general public. 

“We obviously want to reward our best fans - not just season ticket holders -  but people that follow us all year on Twitter or Facebook," said Siegel.

The only way to be guaranteed playoff tickets is to buy season tickets for next year, but you have to pay now in full.

If the NL West Champion Dodger team has the best or second-best record in the National League, they will open the playoffs on Thursday, Oct. 3. 

And what if what if Dodgers make to the World Series, for the first time since Ronald Reagan was President?

Siegel doesn't foresee selling any general admission tickets.

He says the team would hold a lottery from the fans who've registered at Dodgers.com
