Reunion game added to O's Fantasy Camp

September 30, 1995|By FROM STAFF REPORTS

Orioles officials want their fantasy camp to be an experience that will last a lifetime. Or at least last more than one week.

That's why they have added a reunion game. The Orioles Fantasy Camp, which will be held in Sarasota, Fla., from Feb. 4-11, will reunite camp members May 11 at Camden Yards to play a six-inning game.

"That's probably the biggest attraction to this year's camp," director Ken Bullough said. "Each participant will get to play a six-inning game, get their names on the scoreboard and everything. We will invite their families to watch. It's going to be something special."

The roster for this year's camp is nearly two-thirds full and should be complete by the end of November. The camp is open for everyone 30 and older.

Twenty-nine former Orioles, including Frank Robinson, Boog Powell, Elrod Hendricks, Jim Gentile, Mike Flanagan, Don Buford and Al Bumbry, are scheduled to attend. For more information, call (410) 547-6063.
