O's seek Monday home opener

April 07, 1995|By Buster Olney

SARASOTA, Fla. -- The Orioles have asked the American League to move their home opener with Milwaukee back one day, to May 1, in keeping with their tradition of opening on Monday afternoon with a day off on Tuesday to use as a rain date.

"We haven't gotten an official response on our schedule," Orioles vice chairman Joe Foss said last night. "I expect that it will be approved."

Foss, who expects the schedule to be released today, said he's also "optimistic" that the Orioles will be able to flip-flop their May 14-16 series at Camden Yards against Cleveland with a Sept. 8-10 series in Cleveland. That would ensure that rainouts would not prevent Cal Ripken's potential record-breaking game from occurring at Camden Yards.
