The Orioles announced yesterday that Opening Day tickets for the 1991 season will go on sale Saturday in conjunction with the club's annual winter carnival.
At the same time individual tickets for all but the last three games will also go on sale. Plans for the sale of tickets for those games, the final ones to be played in Memorial Stadium, will be announced at a later date.
Saturday's carnival will be held from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the Omni Hotel. There will be hourly tours of the new stadium under construction at Camden Yards from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.
In addition, several autograph booths will be set up and there will be a media roundtable discussion.
