The Bowie Baysox have announced University of Maryland Terrapins Baseball Night at Prince George’s Stadium Monday, April 9, against the Richmond Flying Squirrels at 7:05 p.m. The night will include appearances by players and coaches for an autograph session on the concourse and a special ticket pack for loyal Maryland baseball fans.

At 15-6 (through March 20), The Terps are enjoying one of their best seasons in school history. Earlier in the month of March, Maryland baseball was ranked 20th in the Perfect Game USA Today Top 50. It was the first time in program history the team had been ranked in the poll.

Promotions Manager Chris Rogers helped organize the event.  “In 1994, the University of Maryland allowed the Baysox to play a number of home games at Shipley Field before Prince George’s Stadium was completed,” Rogers said. “As we celebrate our 20th Anniversary this season, honoring the Maryland baseball team is the perfect way to thank the Terps and celebrate the amazing season they are enjoying.”

Maryland players and coaches will be on hand to throw out ceremonial first pitches before the game and will then hold an autograph signing session on the concourse. A special ticket code is available for Maryland baseball fans interested in attending the game. Individuals using the special offer code TERPS will be placed in a special Maryland fans box seat section where they will be able to cheer on the Terps before cheering for the Baysox during the game.

In his third season at Maryland, head coach Erik Bakich has quickly turned around a Terps team that went 21-35 (5-25 in the ACC) last season. The Terps opened the season by winning 2 of 3 against #14 UCLA and jumped out to an 11-1 record before beginning ACC play. In the team’s most recent weekend series, Maryland was able to win 1 of 3 games against #4 North Carolina.

Baysox single game tickets go on sale Saturday, March 24 at 10 a.m. during the team’s annual Free Family Funfest at Prince George’s Stadium. For more information, fans can visit www.baysox.com or call (301) 805-6000
