Don't leave home without tickets

November 25, 1993|By Lem Satterfield | Lem Satterfield,Staff Writer

Towson State security officials and both athletic departments of the schools involved in today's 73rd annual Calvert Hall-Loyola football game ask that fans who don't already have tickets not to try to attend the sold-out game.

"We've had it announced several times on WBAL that you should please not come if you don't have a ticket," said Loyola athletic director Jerry Savage, the host administrator of the 10 a.m. contest. "It helps that people know, because we can't accommodate the crowd. Towson has been very cooperative, and this is the only thing they've asked."

The game regularly attracted around 10,000 people at Memorial Stadium, where it had been played since 1954.

But both schools received notice in October from Stephanie S. Esworthy, administrative supervisor of the city's Recreation and Parks Department, that Memorial Stadium was not available until mid-winter because of the filming of "Major League II."

The two schools secured the university's Minnegan Stadium, for which tickets were sold out Friday at Calvert Hall and early Monday morning at Loyola, Savage said.
