The Orioles announced earlier this week that they will charge a game day ticketing fee of $1 to $5 for walk ups after 12:01 AM.

It’s basically as simple as that, if you show up to Camden Yards on game day to buy tickets, you will pay more than face value.

While some fans may be alarmed by this fee, since the Orioles have struggled to put butts in seats, I’m not worried about the fee at all. If you’re a O’s fan that goes to as many games as I do, you buy your tickets before you go to the game.

O’s fans can get $50 tickets on StubHub for $25-$30. I do this about 15 times a year.

In my opinion, if the O’s want to charge fans a few extra bucks for walk-ups, no problem. Fans have more than enough different ways to access tickets.

The Baltimore Sun has the full details.
