The Orioles will draw more than 3 million fans for the third time in their history this season, the club announced yesterday.
With eight home games remaining, the Orioles' attendance is 2,733,152.
The Orioles and Colorado Rockies -- who went over the 3-million mark last night -- will be the only teams to reach the plateau in the 1995 season, which was shortened to 144 games because of the players strike.
The Orioles also drew more than 3 million in 1992 (3,567,819) and 1993 (3,644,965).
Tickets remaining for the rest of the Orioles' homestand:
