The Baltimore Orioles franchise is one that has a long history, dating back to 1901, and going
through two previous cities before settling in Baltimore. The franchise started in the city of
Milwaukee, then after only one year moved to St. Louis for the next 52 years, and then finally
into the city of Baltimore to become the Orioles. The first Baltimore Orioles tickets were sold
on April 15 1954 for a game vs. the Chicago White Sox. The day started off with a welcome
parade for the team which brought out 300,000 fans, and ended with a sellout crowd buying
46,354 Baltimore Orioles tickets and cheering their new franchise to a 3-1 victory.
When looking back at the names of players who have worn the Oriole jersey, the name that
pops out the most is Cal Ripken Jr. Ripken is known most for his streak of 2,362 consecutive
games played in, a MLB record, and helping sell over 94 million Baltimore Orioles tickets during
that span. At the end of his streak in 1998, the team was averaging over 45,000
Baltimore Orioles tickets sold per game.
After the Ripken era, Baltimore Orioles tickets sales started to decline as the team quickly
signed and traded for star players, yet found themselves at the bottom of the AL East standings
year after year. The woes for the Orioles continued throughout the 21st century, but times may
be changing as the 2012 season seems to have sparked a new tradition for the Orioles, winning.
The Orioles make their home in Camden Yards, located in downtown Baltimore. In
recent years the club has only averaged around 22,000 Baltimore Orioles tickets sold per game,
leaving plenty of room for all fans and baseball enthusiasts to go out to Camden Yards,
purchase some Baltimore Orioles tickets, and enjoy a good game of baseball.
Camden Yards was first used as the home of the Orioles in 1992, which led to a jump in
Baltimore Orioles tickets sold per game by 12,500 between the years 1991 and 1992. The big
reason for this jump was partly due to the success of the team, but also because of the new
ballpark in town that had, and still has, many great features all fans can enjoy. One of the fan
attractions at Camden Yards is the Baltimore Orioles Wall of Fame, on this wall are photos
of past greats to wear the Oriole uniform, along with some of the greatest moments in the
franchise’s history. For true O's fans, buying Baltimore Orioles tickets and walking by the
Wall of Fame is well worth the price of admission. In addition, they get the
pleasure to enjoy a game later.
As the Orioles are starting to turn their team around ,
now is the time to purchase Baltimore Orioles tickets and watch as this team tries to make the
leap towards a World Series.
