Orioles will play exhibition game in Norfolk on March 29

When the Orioles begin the return trip north for Opening Day after completing spring training in Florida, they will make a quick stop in Norfolk, Va.

The team will complete its spring exhibition schedule this year with a game against their Triple-A affiliate, the Norfolk Tides, on March 29, according to the spring training schedule released by Major League Baseball on Thursday.

The game is scheduled for 3:05 p.m. at Norfolk's Harbor Park, the home of the Tides. The park just underwent a playing field renovation this offseason.


The Orioles played an exhibition game in Norfolk two years ago, losing to the Tides, 6-4, in a tune-up game. On that date, the club also set its Opening Day roster.

Ticket information for the game is expected to be announced by the Tides in the upcoming days.
