The Orioles leave their fans frustrated again! The orioles have this promotion out where they will be selling 500 tickets for a dollar to certain games. Figuring it was going to be a Tuesday night (Sept 15th) game against the Rays where there will probably be 5,000 people there a local radio station in town (WNST) decided that they were going to put together a rally. SEE THE BIRDS. They were going to try and reach that 500 ticket mark and possibly beyond. Since the Orioles web site cost a little more than a dollar with shipping and handling and a convince fee WNST sold them for just two dollars. One dollar goes toward the ticket and the other goes toward the Nick Markakis Right side foundation. With in three hours of the promotion they sold over 500 tickets, so they then asked the orioles (figuring they are doing a good thing by getting people to go to the game) if they could be granted an unlimited amount of tickets for this event which is also going to charity. The Orioles for whatever reason turned them down.
Now this issue leaves me furious and absolutely ticked off. The Orioles stink we know that, but to turn down over 500 fans and 500 dollars worth of charity is absolutely ridiculous. I posted this because the Orioles have once again failed to satisfy the community and to think they don’t even consider this for charity absolutely frustrates me. Once 1 o’clock roles around on Sunday the orioles will have been forgotten for a 12th straight year and this I think would have generated some buzz for them. It was a win win situation and they blew it again. “Wait till they see what the upper deck looks like the rest of the season. I mean this passed weekend we had the lowest attendance in baseball”
