February 19, 1992|By Doug Brown

More than 4,200 tickets have been sold for the Major Indoor Lacrosse League game between the Baltimore Thunder and Detroit Turbos Feb. 29 at the Baltimore Arena.

Arena capacity for indoor lacrosse is 11,536. The Thunder drew 9,972 for its opener here last season against Detroit and 10,814 ++ for the MILL championship match with the Turbos in April.

The Gait Twins, Gary and Paul, are the main draw. The former Syracuse stars, widely regarded as the best offensive players in lacrosse, led Detroit to the MILL championship last year.

Detroit is atop the MILL's National Division with a 4-1 record. The Thunder is tied with the New York Saints for the American Division lead at 3-2. Both teams are idle this weekend.

In the teams' only encounter this season, Jan. 4, the Turbos won, 20-13, before 8,258 in Detroit's Joe Louis Arena.
