About 4,000 Texas Rangers tickets stolen from a vendor will have the bar codes changed to void them.
KTVT-TV reports Metro Tickets in Dallas had a break-in through the wall of an adjacent business.
Police say the theft of about $140,000 worth of tickets was discovered last week as the season was starting.
Metro Tickets owner David Christopherson says the tickets are for games in July, August and September.
Christopherson warns that the tickets probably will be offered online or scalped and buyers
should use legitimate brokers.
Rangers spokesman John Blake says team officials can check tickets to make sure they are legitimate.
The Rangers, unbeaten in their first six games, will visit the Orioles on Friday night.
