They did use Ticketmaster a few years back and switched to the in house system. Now back to Ticketmaster. 

It was actually Tickets.com 

 

Not an inhouse

You are right.Meant to say that MLB Advanced  Media ,which owns Tickets.com,  is owned by MLB owners as a limited partnership . But you are right that the Orioles used an outside ticket distribution system

The Orioles really need to do a small ticket package like the Nationals are doing and almost all other teams. Weekend package . Perhaps a weekend package with giveaways for  all the weekend game package. Need to be creative to get any fans.

I tried it on my work computer and got an error message.  I remember that my tickets never worked on my work computer, so I tried it on my phone.  Error message.  I'll try one last time at home, and then I'm taking this as a sign that I am not to buy season tickets this year.  

This is so aggravating.  Been a season ticket holder for 9 years and we have to go through all this nonsense?  I haven't even had my own personal rep for at least 5 years now.  And we STILL haven't figured out a way to market tickets for Christmas sales?  I had to give my dad and brother hand made vouchers as a Christmas present.  

The more things change, the more they stay the same with this franchise.  Sports are supposed to be fun and take us away from the stress of the real world, but instead all the Orioles and Ravens do is present me with additional stress.

The more I think about it, for the price of our tickets, I could take my wife on a week long cruise again and then just watch the team lose on television all year.

I'm still receiving the same error message as well.  I phoned the Orioles this morning, was on hold for 5 minutes waiting for a rep, finally took the option to leave a voicemail.  Haven't heard back.  Maybe the Billy Joel announcement tied up the phone lines.

Working too hard can give  you a heart attack.Is that all you get for your money.

Maybe call John Angelos.He was the one saying that the Orioles have a great product in all facets of entertainment.

I had issues and contacted them via email and they got back to me right away. Was able to get it resolved. The person online that day was very good to deal with.

I didn’t get the lack of a holiday card.  

Maybe the analytics showed fans didn’t care about that or a cost cutting measure.....

I suspect a lot of last minute duties had no one to champion them. 

I have had good service again this season, and I don't have an special  go to persons any longer. Seems like the ticket office is working properly at this point.

Most people that work for the Orioles are really good. I  know why they went to Ticketmaster. now. Be interesting to see when tickets go on sale this year. Last year ,season tickets went on sale January 9th. Single game January 25th. Spring training January 13th but announced January 10th.

    • For Immediate Release: July 20, 2019   BULLPEN SHUTS DOWN HILLCATS CUMBERLAND CLUBS GO-AHEAD HOME RUN TO LIFT KEYS LYNCHBURG, VA – A strong bullpen effort and a late two-run home run from Brett Cumberland gave the Frederick Keys (10-20, 39-60) a 3-1 victory in a tight game against the Lynchburg Hillcats (14-16, 46-51) on Saturday night at City Stadium. The bullpen was called upon early in the second inning after Ofelky Peralta left with an injury and they delivered eight shutout innings for the Keys. Juan Hillman was outstanding for the Hillcats as he struck out a career-high 10 batters over seven innings, but Cumberland struck in the eighth with a two-run blast to lift the Keys late in the game. Up 3-1 in the ninth inning, Tim Naughton (S, 4) came in to relieve Zach Matson (1-0), who pitched three scoreless innings and retired nine of 10 batters he faced. Naughton looked sharp to start, striking out Will Benson on four pitches but things turned slowly. Mitch Reeves was able to poke a double down the right-field line and Jonathan Laureano was hit-by-a-pitch which put the tying run on base. Naughton then struck out Jodd Carter looking but he walked Gavin Collins on four pitches to load the bases. Naughton though got ahead 0-2 to Steven Kwan, who flied out to right field to end the game. The Hillcats lone run came in the first inning when they loaded the bases against Peralta with one-out. Will Benson lifted a fly-ball to centerfield and Cole Billingsley fired a dart to third base to nab Wilbis Santiago for the third out of the inning. Tyler Freeman, however, tagged from third base and scored on the fly-ball to give Lynchburg a 1-0 lead. The Key wasted no time getting the run back. Cumberland singled to lead off the second and Cadyn Grenier walked to put runners and first and second with one-out. Hillman then induced what looked to be a groundball double-play, but Luke Wakamatsu threw wide of first base on the relay throw, allowing Cumberland to score and tie the game at 1-1. In the bottom of the inning, Mitch Reeves lined a pitch right back at Peralta which hit the starter’s throwing hand and knocked him out of the game. Scott Burke was called upon out of the pen and stranded Reeves at second to end the inning. Burke went on to throw four scoreless innings. He stranded two runners in scoring position in the fourth inning but only allowed three base-runners in his outing. Hillman was outstanding for the Hillcats. The southpaw through seven innings and struck out a career-best 10 batters. He allowed one unearned run on five hits. Riley Echols (3-1) took the loss after allowing the two-run home run to Cumberland. Cumberland clubbed the first pitch he saw beyond the right-field wall to give the Keys a 3-1 lead. It was his first home run in a Keys’ uniform. The Keys and Hillcats square off in a late afternoon game on Sunday, July 21. RHP Brenan Hanifee (6-9, 4.40) takes the mound for Frederick in his first start since he threw a complete-game shutout. First pitch for game one is scheduled 3:00pm, with pregame coverage starting at 2:45pm on frederickkeys.com and the Tune In radio app.  The Frederick Keys are the Advanced-A affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles, and play their home games at Nymeo Field at Harry Grove Stadium. Following the 2018 season, the Keys were named the winner of the Carolina League’s Complete Franchise Award. This goes to a team in the league which demonstrates franchise stability and significant contributions to its community and the league. In 2019, the team will host the Carolina League All-Star Classic presented by Visit Frederick.

    • McKenna Walks Off Curve, 7-6, in Extras Baysox win 13th straight series with win.   BOWIE, Md. – Ryan McKenna grounded a bases-loaded single in the 10th inning to complete a 7-6 comeback win over the Altoona Curve in front of 4,381 at Prince George's Stadium Saturday night.   After Dillon Tate tossed a scoreless 10th inning during his key 2 2/3 relief innings, Mason McCoy laid down a bunt in front of catcher Jason Delay. Pinch-runner T.J. Nichting beat the throw to third base, which set the stage for McKenna after an intentional walk to Cedric Mullins.   With the bases loaded and no one out, the left fielder grounded the first pitch from Curve pitcher Mark Eckelman through the right side of the drawn-in infield to seal the 13th straight Eastern League series victory.   McCoy got the Baysox (23-6) off and running with a run in the third inning to take a 1-0 lead. Jesse Valentin led off with a double down the right field line and advanced on a Stuart Levy single to left field. With one out, McCoy beat out a potential double play to drive in his 22nd run of the season.   The offense knocked Altoona starter Beau Sulser from the game with four consecutive hits in the fifth inning. Rylan Bannon led off with his eighth home run of the season and second in as many games. The opposite-field shot under the scoreboard in right-center field added an insurance run and increased the score to 2-0.   Preston Palmeiro hustled into second base two batters later with the second double in as many at-bats, scoring Valentin on RBI No. 31. Bowie has scored 10 runs in the fifth inning during the four-game series, and they tacked on one more run two batters after Palmeiro's double.   The second pitch of the night from reliever Blake Cederlind skipped to the backstop, allowing Palmeiro to score the third run of the frame. The hosts tacked on a fifth run in the sixth inning, thanks to the third double down the right field line from Valentin that plated Yusniel Diaz. The three doubles for Valentin tied a franchise record for most doubles in one game.   Altoona (15-13) scored four runs in the seventh inning and two runs in the eighth inning to take a 6-5 lead, but Diaz quickly shifted the momentum once again with solo rocket deep to left field. The team-leading 10th home run of the season for the right fielder was the first since July 4.    Despite the late rally effort, Alex Wells turned in another quality start in a no-decision. The lefty held the Curve to five hits and struck out a quartet over six scoreless innings for his 10thquality start, lowering his league-leading ERA to 1.83 in the process.   The series and homestand finale between the Curve and Baysox gets underway at 1:35 p.m. Fresh off his Tuesday night no-hitter, RHP Michael Baumann (2-1, 0.33 ERA) takes on LHP Sean Brady (3-8, 4.42 ERA) in the third game of the season as Los Cangrejos Fantasmas de Chesapeake.   Sunday is Salsa Sunday at the ballpark, where fans can learn how to dance the Latin American genre and take in live performances from local salsa dance troupes, thanks to Chesapeake Insurance.
