IronBirds respond to fans upset about autographs

The Aberdeen IronBirds, the short-season Single-A affiliate of the Orioles, responded Tuesday to disgruntled fans who didn't receive autographs from top Ravens players at a charity event Saturday, saying the purpose of the event was to help the Japan relief fund, not to get signatures. The event at Ripken Stadium, orchestrated by Ravens safety Haruki Nakamura, drew an estimated 3,000 and raised more than $60,000 for victims of the recent earthquake and tsunami disaster in Japan. But some fans were upset that they paid at least $50 and didn't get an autograph from Ed Reed, Joe Flacco or Ray Rice — all of whom left before the event ended at 3p.m. "Our stance is everything was supposed to be for charity that day," said Jenna Raglani, assistant general manager and director of sales for Ripken Baseball. "We earmarked this as a totally successful event that happened here on Saturday, raising over $60,000 and being able to work directly with Haruki." Ripken Stadium held the event for free and players didn't receive an appearance fee, according to Raglani.
