Want O's-Cuba ticket? Get in line

April 09, 1999|By Peter Schmuck

The coming game between the Orioles and members of the Cuban National Team may be a tough ticket.

The Orioles announced yesterday that the tickets to the May 3 game at Camden Yards will be sold in much the same way that the club distributes postseason tickets -- first to its best customers and then to the general public.

Invoices were mailed yesterday to all holders of Orioles' full season-ticket and 29-game plans. Fans who hold 13-game plans will get invoices at a later date based on seniority. The club will determine from the advance sale how many tickets will be made available to the general public.

The tickets will be priced the same as tickets to regular-season Orioles games.

Club officials expect demand to be high, based on the number of ticket inquiries that have been received since the Orioles won the first half of the international exhibition series, 3-2, in extra innings at Havana's Latin American Stadium.
