Individual tickets for all 17 of the Orioles’ 2019 Spring Training games at Ed Smith Stadium will go on sale Saturday, January 26 at 10:00 a.m. ET. It is recommended that fans purchase tickets online. The Orioles will offer a special online 36-hour presale from Wednesday, January 23 at 10:00 a.m. to Thursday, January 24 at 10:00 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 2019 at Ed Smith Stadium in Sarasota on Saturday, February 23, at 1:05 p.m. against the Minnesota Twins. This season, the Orioles will honor the “One Millionth Fan” to attend Orioles Spring Training games since the team moved Major League operations to Sarasota in 2010.
“The Orioles have welcomed more than 985,000 fans over our first nine Major League Spring Training seasons in Sarasota,” said Grg Bader, Orioles Vice President, Communications & Marketing. “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 one 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.

Ed Smith Stadium was recognized by USA Today in 2018 as the top Spring Training venue in Major League Baseball. An independent analysis commissioned by Sarasota County Government concluded that the Orioles generate approximately $97 million in annual economic impact back to taxpayers and residents. By marketing Sarasota to fans in the Mid-Atlantic region, operating a year-round athletic training facility, producing entertainment and sporting events, partnering with charitable causes, and hosting and often subsidizing youth sports tournaments and activities, the Orioles demonstrate an abiding commitment to their Florida home that goes far beyond baseball.
