BaysoxThe Bowie Baysox announce today a snapshot of the promotional schedule for the 2015 season. The schedule includes 19 fireworks nights, a number of family-friendly events, multiple giveaways, recurring weekday events and a wide variety of fun theme nights with more fun still to be announced in the coming weeks. 

The 2015 promo schedule starts off with a bang as the Baysox host the Seven Millionth Fan Celebration Friday, April 17. The first 1,000 fans in attendance that night will receive an instant- win scratch-card with one card containing the seven millionth fan grand prize. The Baysox will also pay tribute to the “Sultan of Swat” with a Babe Ruth Bobblehead Giveaway Sunday, July 19 in partnership with the Babe Ruth Birthplace and Museum. The first 1,000 fans ages 13 and older will receive a bobbling version of the local legend wearing his Baltimore Orioles Minor League jersey from 1914. The Big Rigs are also coming to Bowie Saturday, May 30 for the Touch-A-Truck event presented by Miss Utility. Dozens of construction vehicles and large trucks will be in the parking lot before the game for fans to interact with and there will be a Touch-A-Truck T-shirt giveaway for the first 500 kids ages 3-12.   

Baysox Marketing Director Brandan Kaiser is excited to unveil some new theme nights this season. “The fireworks nights are always fan favorites, but we have plenty of other great events planned this season to ensure our fans are always entertained,” Kaiser said.  “The City of Bowie is helping the Baysox show Maryland Pride with a Maryland Flag Baysox logo T-shirt Giveaway in June. We are also excited to debut Paint in the Park Night during Tailgate Tuesday June 9.”
