Orioles spring training tickets to go on sale Jan. 26; FanFest autograph vouchers on sale Thursday

Individual tickets for all 17 of the Orioles’ 2019 spring training home games at Ed Smith Stadium will go on sale Saturday, Jan. 26 at 10 a.m.

It is recommended that fans purchase tickets online. The Orioles will offer a special 36-hour online presale from Wednesday, Jan. 23 at 10 a.m. to Thursday, Jan. 24 at 10 p.m. to fans subscribing to the free digital Sarasota 365 Newsletter or Warehouse Wire.


The Orioles will play their first of 17 home spring training games in in Sarasota, Fla., on Feb. 23, at 1:05 p.m. against the Minnesota Twins.

This season, the Orioles will honor the “one millionth fan” to attend spring training games since the team moved major league operations to Sarasota in 2010.

Three years after the Orioles and Chris Davis agreed to his club-record, $161 million deal, the ramifications on the Orioles' payroll, their rebuild and the game of baseball continue to grow.

“The Orioles have welcomed more than 985,000 fans over our first nine major league spring training seasons in Sarasota,” Orioles vice president of communications and marketing Greg Bader said in a statement. “This figure has far surpassed original projections and is a testament to the tremendous support we receive both locally and among our fans who make the trip to Sarasota each spring, as well as the outstanding fan experience we offer at Ed Smith Stadium.

“We will reach the ‘one millionth fan’ milestone faster than any franchise in Sarasota’s near century-long spring training history.”

The ballclub will select one fan at random on the day the milestone is reached, most likely on opening weekend, to represent the 1 million fans, Bader said. The Orioles’ “one millionth fan” will receive a $5,000 shopping experience at Diamond Vault in Sarasota, two spring training season tickets for five years and more.

Fans interested in season tickets, five-game flex-plans, or group tickets, or those wishing to receive additional spring training ticket information, may call the Orioles spring training office at 941-893-6312.

Autograph vouchers on sale Thursday

Vouchers for autograph sessions at Orioles FanFest will go on sale Thursday at 2 p.m. The list of autograph session times and participants will be posted online for preview at www.orioles.com/fanfest by 9 p.m. Wednesday.

FanFest will be held Jan. 26, at the Baltimore Convention Center from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., with early entry for Birdland Members beginning at 10 a.m.

At this year’s FanFest, the Orioles will continue an autograph policy designed to support youth charitable endeavors through OriolesREACH and enhance fan engagement with shorter wait times. Children ages 4-14 will have a specially designated Kids Only player autograph station that is free of charge that will operate continuously throughout the day. All other autograph stations at FanFest will require the advance purchase of autograph vouchers exclusively at www.orioles.com/fanfest for $20 each, with all of the proceeds benefiting children’s charities through OriolesREACH.

There will be 250 vouchers available for each autograph session, guaranteeing that every fan purchasing a voucher for a particular session will receive an autograph from each of the players at the station. Fans can only use one voucher per person per autograph station. Each person in line must have his or her own voucher and can only use one voucher per station.

The Orioles reserve the right to change or substitute individuals as necessary. Fans will be able to print their vouchers at home and must present them to the attendant at the appropriate autograph session, shortening the amount of wait time in autograph lines. Fans must be in line for their autograph session no later than 30 minutes after the session begins. Autograph vouchers are not eligible for refunds or exchanges.
