BALTIMORE (WJZ) — With the start of the season fast approaching, the Orioles are letting fans pick their seats for the 2013 season.
Tim Williams reports Tag Day is the time tickets and owners get matched up.
While the Orioles are taking care of business at spring training, the business of ticket sales is happening here at home.
“We have four tickets for the Sunday plan. We’re out there in section 68, right between the W and the B on the WB Mason sign,” said Mark Tharle.
This is Tag Day.
“This is a chance for fans to come out, bring the families and test out seats that they might want to purchase for the season. We’re doing full season plans, 29 game plans and 13 game plans. It’s really giving people a little taste of what they might be doing for the summer,” said Orioles spokesperson Jay Moskowitz.
Pennants mark available seats. Fans try to get the seats out and, as the Jumbotron shows excerpts from last year’s unlikely underdog season, fans continue to get geared up.
“Real excited,” Tharle said. “I think we’re going to have a great season again.”
Some fans are motivated to come out by the excitement leading up to Opening Day, while others have waited since last season to come out to pick their seats.
“Last season, it was just so exciting and I enjoyed it so much,” said Edward and Robin Adams. “This year, I got permission so we came down and bought two season tickets.”
Now as the excitement mounts, the clock to Opening Day is winding down.
