Another exciting season of baseball begins in less than one month and the Bowie Baysox have announced the premium giveaways and celebrity appearances that will be part of the 2013 promotional schedule. The full promotional schedule will follow Wednesday.
Headlining the 2013 season are appearances by Alfonso Ribeiro aka “Carlton Banks” and Baltimore Ravens kicker Justin Tucker, who will be portrayed in his own bobble head and bobble leg figurine. Fans of the show “Dancing with the Stars” will also want to come out Sunday, June 30 to see Season One champion and “General Hospital” star Kelly Monaco.
“There are a number of new and exciting events scheduled for 2013 that fans aren’t going to want to miss,” said Baysox Marketing Director Brandan Kaiser. “We try to think outside the box and come up with theme nights that are unique and that all of our fans will enjoy. Seeing the ‘Carlton Dance’ performed on the field should be a thrill to everyone who misses television of the 90s.”
Fans will have their voices heard leading up to the Baysox player T-Shirt giveaway, presented by the City of Bowie, on Sunday May 26. Through voting held on the Baysox website, fans will determine what player shirt the team will produce for the giveaway. The Baysox have also created two other giveaway items for baseball fans – a Jim Johnson Bobblehead and Manny Machado Garden Gnome presented by Miss Utility.
Wrestling fans will want to come out Wednesday, July 31 during a game against the New Hampshire Fisher Cats when the Baysox annual Legends of Wrestling Event returns with a guest appearance by Kevin Nash.
