Orioles have picked Opening Day winners

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.

The Orioles received about 250,000 postcards for the lotteries. Vaughn said it would be impossible to contact each of the losers to inform them of the outcome, and asked fans to refrain from calling the team offices. The team's switchboards have been filled with calls from fans who are curious, he said.

Opening Day aside, the Orioles do have about 15,000 tickets available for each of their other six home games in April.
