Finale, cause bring $17,500 for 2 tickets

September 22, 2001|By Jon Morgan

A Pasadena construction company owner signed a check for $17,500 yesterday to take possession of two tickets to Cal Ripken's last game, which he secured through a radio station auction. The money will be used for disaster relief.

Joe Memmel bid on the tickets, both autographed by Ripken, on Wednesday in an auction conducted by WQSR. The tickets were donated by Andrew Levine, president, and Mark Luterman, vice president, of the Baltimore-based Stone Care International. The company manufactures and sells maintenance products for stone.

Levine, a friend of Ripken's business agent, arranged for the tickets and parking pass to be autographed by the Orioles third baseman as a way to raise money for victims of the terrorist attacks.
