When the Orioles open the 1991 baseball season Monday, police say they'll be out in force, looking to nab ticket scalpers outside Memorial Stadium.
"We'll have people there looking for scalpers," said police spokesman Dennis Hill.
Hill says it's a crime to sell baseball tickets for amounts higher than the listed price. "You can sell them for less, however," he added.
And it's not a crime to buy the high-priced tickets, Hill said.
Demand for Opening Day tickets, fueled by the nostalgia over the final season at Memorial Stadium, has led some to sell the tickets for as much as $45 each for upper reserve seats that normally go for $7.50.
