All-star Workout Tickets

June 17, 1993

It isn't the All-Star Game, but for some baseball-hungry fans it could be the next-best thing.

About 20,000 tickets to the All-Star Workout, a star-studded warm-up to the 64th All-Star Game, go on sale starting Saturday morning, Orioles and Major League Baseball officials said yesterday.

Tickets, which range from $12 for club seats to $3 for standing room, can be purchased at the Camden Yards ticket office on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m. Payment at the box office must be made with cash, check or money order.

Tickets for the All-Star Workout also will be available by telephone from Ticket Master, but only credit-card charges will be accepted. Phone lines will open at 9 a.m.

A limit of eight tickets can be purchased.

The All-Star Workout, scheduled for Monday, July 12, is one in a series of events leading up to the All-Star Game. Activities begin at noon with a practice session featuring players in the All-Star Game. Sluggers from the American and National league squads then participate in a home-run hitting contest followed by an old-timers game between past stars of the two leagues.

More than half of the tickets for the workout already have been sold, mostly to Orioles customers with partial season-ticket plans. Those fans were given preference because only a limited number of seats for the All-Star Game were available via lottery to customers with partial season-ticket plans.

Proceeds from the workout benefit the Johns Hopkins Children Center, the Orioles Children's Charities and the Baseball Assistance Team, which gives financial aid to former major-league players.
