Baysox Director of Marketing Brandan Kaiser looks forward to the event. “Independence Day and baseball go hand-in-hand and we have a great show planned here at Prince George’s Stadium,” Kaiser said. “Not only do we have our most exciting fireworks show of the season after the game, but there will be tons of fun ways to celebrate the holiday during the day, including the Independence Day picnic.”
