    Tech N9ne doesn't know where he got tickets to the opening game of the World Series at Kauffman Stadium.

But as luck would have it, he ended up with the best seats in the stadium — first row, behind home plate. "We walked out there, and I said, 'This is our seats?'" Tech N9ne tells The Pitch. "He says, 'Yup,' and I was like,…
