As I was heading out the door, the Orioles confirmed that FanFest 2010 will take place on Jan. 23 at the Baltimore Convention Center.
Just when I think I'm out, they pull me back in.
The event will be held from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. with early entry for season plan holders beginning at 10 a.m. Tickets cost $10 for adults and $5 for children 14 and under and anyone over 55. All proceeds will go toward signing a first baseman.
Individual game tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. They can be purchased at the Convention Center or the Orioles' box office at the north end of the warehouse.
Tickets also can be purchased by calling 1-888-848-BIRD, going online at www.orioles.com or visiting the official team store at the York Galleria in York, Pa.
