O's cancel makeup date against A's

O's cancel makeup date against A's

|
BALTIMORE -- The Orioles announced Monday that their Sept. 6 game against the Oakland Athletics, a matchup postponed due to rain, will not be played due to a ruling by Major League Baseball. The two teams still had an off-day in common on Sept. 25, but it would've required overly onerous travel for Oakland to play the game.

That's the final decision for a game that was originally scheduled for Sept. 7 and switched to avoid conflict with the Baltimore Ravens. The Orioles rescheduled it as part of a doubleheader on Sept. 6, but the first half was rained out due to Tropical Storm Hanna. Fans holding tickets for the game can exchange them for any remaining game this season.

Fans can also elect to exchange their tickets for any non-prime home games in April of the 2009 season, and both full- and partial-season-plan holders have the option to exchange their tickets or apply the credit toward next year's renewal. Original ticket holders residing outside a 75-mile radius of Camden Yards may request a refund because of the cancellation.
