And the winners are . . .
The Orioles have picked the winning postcards in three lotteries for Opening Day tickets, the team announced yesterday. Some winners have been notified of their good luck. The rest will be contacted soon, said Orioles spokesman Rick Vaughn.
In all, about 12,000 tickets will be distributed via the lotteries, only one of which was open to all fans. Another exclusively was for season-ticket holders with 13-game plans and the third was for "preferred" Orioles customers, those who have bought seats in the past.
