The Orioles have announced which players will be signing autographs at various stations during FanFest on Feb. 1 at the Baltimore Convention Center.
The policy, if not the song, remains the same. It’s designed to support youth charitable endeavors through OriolesREACH and shorten wait times.
Fans must purchase autograph vouchers beginning at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 18 at www.orioles.com/fanfest. There will be 250 vouchers available for each session, guaranteeing that fans purchasing one will receive an autograph.
These vouchers can be printed out at home - provided that you own a printer and remembered to change the ink cartridge - and must be presented to the attendant at the appropriate autograph session. Get in line for the session no later than 30 minutes after it begins.
If vouchers are still available on the day of the event, they will be available for purchase at the Camden Yards office or at the ticket sales location at FanFest. It’s smart to purchase them in advance.
There’s a limit of two autograph vouchers per person, per one-hour session time, and fans redeeming autograph vouchers must be 3 or older.
Children 4-14 will have a specially designated kids-only player autograph station that is free of charge and will operate continuously throughout the day.
Season ticket plan holders can access FanFest beginning at 10 a.m.. The first 250 in attendance will receive a voucher to participate in a complimentary autograph session beginning at 10 a.m. and featuring Nick Markakis, Bud Norris and Jemile Weeks.
Be sure to look up the correct pronunciation of “Jemile.”
