The Bowie Baysox 2015 season home opener at Prince George’s Stadium is approaching Thursday, April 16, against the Erie SeaWolves 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 Marketing Director Brandan Kaiser is excited for another Opening Day. “We have spent the last six months preparing a great 2015 season and the start is almost here!,” Kaiser said. “We are fortunate to have former X Factor contestant Emma Avila 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. The X Factor Season 2 contestant Emma Avila will perform the National Anthem before the game. As they enter the stadium gates, fans will receive a free Baysox 2015 schedule magnet presented by DCA Imaging Systems. Maryland native and Operation Iraqi Freedom (Marine Corps) veteran Justin Whitcomb will also be on hand to throw out the ceremonial first pitch of 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.
