The 40th Anniversary Celebration of the 1970 World Series is still several weeks away (set for Saturday, June 26), but the Orioles have announced an exclusive luncheon with members from the 1970 team that you might want to plan for now.
As part of the celebration, the Orioles will host a gala luncheon for fans, also on Saturday, June 26 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
At the luncheon, fans will have the opportunity to meet members of the 1970 team, participate in a Q&A session, and get their photos taken with the 1970 World Series trophy.
Look forward to seeing Brooks Robinson, Jim Palmer, Frank Robinson, Earl Weaver, Fred Beene, Paul Blair, Don Buford, Andy Etchebarren, Bobby Floyd, Bobby Grich, Dick Hall, Bill Hunter, Davey Johnson, Dave Leonhard, Tom Phoebus, Boog Powell, Merv Rettenmund, Pete Richert, and Eddie Watt at lunch on the 26th.
Guests to the luncheon will receive a baseball signed by all 1970 team members in attendance and a photo of the attending players with the 1970 World Series Trophy.
Now here's the only catch: The event, to be held on the sixth floor of the Warehouse at Camden Yards, will be limited to 100 O's fans, so plan ahead and reserve a spot right away!
Tickets to the event are $250 per person and include a parking pass for Lot B/C at Camden Yards.
For an additional $50, fans can get a parking pass and ticket to the Birds' 4:05 p.m. game against the Washington Nationals, which will feature an anniversary celebration prior to the game.
So, if you're dying to be one of only 100 O's fans to enjoy this one-of-a-kind lunch with Orioles from the 1970 World Series championship team, tickets go on sale this Saturday, May 22. Reserve your spot starting Saturday by calling 1-888-848-BIRD or by visiting www.orioles.com/1970reunion.
