Opening Day ticket won't need $150 commitment Orioles' priority list not payment-based

December 14, 1990|By Mark Hyman

One aspect of the Baltimore Orioles' revised ticket policy for 1991 was reported incorrectly in an article in yesterday's editions of The Sun.

The team's preferred customers can put their names on a priority list for Opening Day tickets without committing to purchasing tickets for later Orioles games. Previously, it was reported that fans had to spend $150 for tickets to be placed on the list.

If those customers order tickets totaling more than $150 for later games, however, they are eligible to buy two reserved tickets to one of the first two games of the final regular-season series at Memorial Stadium. Those games, on Oct. 4 and 5, are against the Detroit Tigers. The offer does not extend to the final home game, Oct. 6, at Memorial Stadium.

The Orioles' list of preferred customers consists of about 115,000 season-ticket patrons and others who regularly attend games, according to a club official. Many of those customers received a letter this week explaining the ticket policy.
