Sports Breakfast Fans: There has been intense ticket pressure for this Festival event since the announcement of Cal Ripken, Jr., as Sports Marshal. There were only 700 tickets for this event to start with; and, tickets have been on sale since November 11th, 2015. Many were bought by loyal event attendees months before the Announcement of Cal Ripken, Jr. We have now filled all mail orders received prior to Friday, March 25th; and, online orders received during a brief 4-hour online buying period. We have also filled Sponsors’ orders. There will be some tickets left for sale at the Festival Store; but, the number is, as you can imagine, extremely limited. We will, more than likely, have less than 100 additional tickets for sale when the Store opens at 10:00am on Monday morning, April 4th. We are trying to give the public some advance notice!
In addition, we would also like to take this opportunity to inform our attendees that, as part of his contract, Cal Ripken, Jr. will not be autographing items brought to the Sports Breakfast by event attendees. Cal is autographing 20 Official Major League Baseballs that will be given out as Door Prizes at the event. He will also be autographing [prior to the Event] 100 Official Festival Souvenir Pictures of himself that will be given out at the event. Cal will also pose for pictures after the event for as long as his schedule will allow.
