“We are extremely excited that the Orioles will once again be showcasing their talent at Harbor Park this spring” said Tides President Ken Young. “Baltimore has been such a great partner for us, and this is just another example of the dedication the Orioles have to the Tides organization and the Hampton Roads community.”

“We are excited to once again complete our spring training season in Norfolk” said Orioles Executive Vice President of Baseball Operations Dan Duquette. “The Hampton Roads area has been very supportive of our organization and we are pleased to have the opportunity to play in front of our fans at Harbor Park.”

Tickets for the event will go on sale to the general public on Saturday, March 8 at 10 am, with box seats available for $25 and reserved seats available for $22.
