As you've heard, the Orioles have introduced a new autograph policy for their annual FanFest on Jan. 29 at the Baltimore Convention Center, which is designed to support youth charitable endeavors through OriolesREACH and shorten wait times. Children ages 4-14 will have a specially designated Kids Only player autograph station that is free of charge and will operate continuously throughout the day. All other stations will require the advance purchase of autograph vouchers exclusively at orioles.com for $15 each, with all of the proceeds to benefit children's charities through OriolesREACH.
The vouchers go on sale today at 10 a.m.
There will be 250 vouchers available for each autograph session, guaranteeing that each fan purchasing a voucher for a particular session will receive an autograph from each of the players at the station. Fans will be able to print their vouchers at home and must present them to the attendant at the appropriate autograph session, shortening the amount of wait time in autograph lines. Fans must be in line for their autograph session no later than 30 minutes after the session begins.
If vouchers are still available on the day of the event, they will be available for purchase at the Oriole Park Box Office or at the Ticket Sales location at FanFest. Autograph seekers are encouraged to purchase vouchers in advance of the event due to anticipated demand. There is a limit of two autograph vouchers per person, per session time, and fans redeeming autograph vouchers must be three years of age or older.
The complimentary Kids Only area at FanFest will operate throughout the day in a free-flowing system. Youths ages 4-14 may go through this line as many times as they would like as players rotate through the station.
Season plan holders can access FanFest beginning at 10 a.m., and the first 250 in attendance will receive a voucher to participate in a complimentary autograph session beginning at 10 a.m.
Only one voucher per person per player group will be accepted. A voucher grants one autograph from each of the players at the station.
