23,000 seats remain for O's exhibition

April 23, 1995|By Mark Hyman

Barring a late flurry of ticket buying, the Orioles will fall well short of a sellout for this afternoon's exhibition game with the Philadelphia Phillies at Camden Yards.

About 23,000 tickets -- almost half the ballpark's seating capacity -- remained as the weekend began. Orioles officials said seats for the 1:35 p.m. game were available in every price category, including the choicest box seats.

The Orioles are charging regular-season prices for the game, the next-to-last on their exhibition schedule.

Several special events are planned for the exhibition game, Orioles officials say. Before the game, Orioles players and coaches will sign autographs for fans. Signing will take place inside the ballpark from 11:45 p.m. to 12:15 p.m. Gates open at 11:30.

After the game, the Orioles invite children to come down onto the playing field to run around the bases.

The offer is limited to those 14 and younger.
