The kickoff to the 2011 baseball season will begin on Saturday, January 29, as the Orioles host their annual FanFest event at the Baltimore Convention Center. Presented by the Sarasota Convention & Visitors Bureau, 2011 FanFest will feature appearances by current and former Orioles players and coaches as part of a day-long celebration of baseball that will also include clinics, exhibits and interactive games. The event will be held from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., with early entry for Orioles Season Plan Holders to begin at 10:00 a.m.

In addition to FanFest activities, individual game tickets for the 2011 season will go on sale at 10:00 a.m. on January 29. Fans may purchase tickets at the Convention Center or the Orioles' Box Office at the north end of the warehouse throughout the day. Tickets will also be available via phone at 1-888-848-BIRD, online at and at the Official Team Store at the York Galleria in York, PA.

The Orioles will introduce a new autograph policy for FanFest in 2011 designed to shorten wait times, avoid fan disappointment and support youth charitable endeavors through OriolesREACH. Children ages 4-14 will have a specially designated Kids Only player autograph station presented by ESSKAY that is free of charge and will operate continuously throughout the day. All other ESSKAY autograph stations at FanFest will require the advance purchase of autograph vouchers. The vouchers will be available at for $15 each, with all of the proceeds to benefit children's charities through OriolesREACH. Vouchers will go on sale next Saturday, January 15, at 10:00 a.m. There will be 250 vouchers available for each autograph session, guaranteeing each fan who purchases a voucher for a particular session an autograph from each of the 3-4 players at the station. More information on this new policy, including a list of players signing at each paid autograph session, will be released next week. This information will also be posted at the team website,

In addition to autographs, other FanFest activities include question and answer forums with players, front office staff and media; clinics for children on a youth-sized baseball field; memorabilia dealers; and the opportunity to apply for seasonal employment with the organization.

Tickets for FanFest will go on sale this Saturday, January 8 at 10:00 a.m. They are available online at, via phone at 1-888-848-BIRD and at the Official Team Store at the York Galleria in York, PA.
