SALES OFF TO STRONG START: In Baltimore, Ryan Sharrow noted nearly 50,000 tickets "have been sold" for the men’s lacrosse championship weekend, a "figure organizers say puts the event on pace to match last year’s crowd" of 79,179 at Philadelphia's Lincoln Financial Field. Baltimore drew a total attendance of 98,786 when it last hosted the event in '11. Ticket sales are "expected to climb as the event draws closer and the participating schools are known." NCAA Associate Dir of Public & Media Relations Gail Dent said that the "bulk of the advertising surrounding the May 24-26 event has just gotten underway" (BIZJOURNALS.com, 4/27).
