Baysox LogoThe Bowie Baysox open the season at home at Prince George’s Stadium Thursday, April 3, against the Harrisburg Senators at 6:35 p.m. To celebrate the home opener, the Baysox are giving away magnet schedules and opening the gates at 5 p.m. for a special Happy Hour event.

Baysox Director of Marketing Brandan Kaiser is excited for another Opening Day.  “We have spent the last six months preparing an exciting 2014 season and the start is almost here!,” Kaiser said.  “We are very fortunate to have risingNashville recording artist Chris Monaghan joining us and we are also welcoming the outstanding athletes of the Crofton Athletic Council who will help us kick off the season.”

Fans will be able to enter the stadium at the special time of 5:00 p.m. to enjoy corn hole, free snacks and $2 Budweiser and Bud Light drafts during Happy Hour until 6:30 p.m. Harford County native and rising Nashville star Chris Monaghan will perform in the picnic pavilion from 5-6 p.m. and will also perform the National Anthem before the game. As they enter the stadium gates, the first 5,000 fans will receive a free Baysox 2014 schedule magnet presented by Mr. Handyman. Local figure skater and Olympic hopeful Christa Trimilove will be on hand to throw out a ceremonial first pitch and will have a table on the concourse during the game.

When the Baysox take the field, they will be greeted by members of the Crofton Athletic Council Cardinals. The older players in the league form a tunnel for the Baysox as each player is introduced. T-ball players and younger Cardinals welcome players from behind home plate and kick off the season by yelling “Play Ball,” after the national anthem.
