| August 11, 2011 | 0 Comments

The Bowie Baysox have announced a Memorabilia Raffle at Prince George’s Stadium Friday Aug. 12, as the Baysox take on the New Britain Rock Cats at 7:05 p.m. Proceeds from the raffle benefit the Navy SEAL Foundation.

Baysox Assistant General Manager Phil Wrye coordinated the raffle. “The Baysox have strong relationships with all branches of the armed services,” Wrye said. “In light of the recent tragedy in Afghanistan, we decided to host a memorabilia raffle so our fans could win some great prizes while we raise funds and awareness for an important organization.”

Prizes for the raffle include: a Louisville Slugger baseball bat signed by Baltimore Orioles catcher Matt Wieters, and official Eastern League baseballs signed by Vladimir Guerrero, Brian Matusz, Luke Scott, Derrek Lee, Cesar Izturis, Mike Bordick, and current Baysox stars Joe Mahoney and LJ Hoes. Tickets are $1 for one raffle ticket, or $5 for 10 tickets. Winners for each prize will be selected at random from the total pool of tickets.

The Navy SEAL Foundation’s mission is to provide immediate and ongoing support and assistance to the Naval Special Warfare community and their families.

Baysox Baseball – We’ll Knock Your ‘Sox Off. The Baysox 19th season as the class Double-A affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles is underway. Parking is free at every Baysox home game and tickets are now available at www.baysox.com or by calling the Baysox box office at (301) 464-4865.
