The Bowie Baysox have announced that the team will be hosting the third annual Helicopter Candy Drop following the 2:05 p.m. game Sunday, May 29 at P.G. Stadium. At the conclusion of Sunday’s game, all kids ages 12 and under in attendance will be invited to participate in a candy drop in the outfield. A helicopter will drop thousands of pieces of candy onto the field for kids to collect.
Baysox Marketing Director Brandan Kaiser is looking forward to this day. “This event has been extremely popular over the past two seasons are we are excited to bring it back for our fans to experience in 2016,” Kaiser said. “Watching a helicopter hover over the stadium and pour thousands of pieces of candy into the outfield and then watching the reactions of the kids afterward is pretty cool.”
The helicopter, provided by Monumental Helicopters, will take flight after the conclusion of the game and after all participating kids have made their way onto the warning track surrounding the outfield at Prince George’s Stadium (weather permitting).
Sunday is also Louie’s Birthday Bash and the Baysox will be celebrating with free cake for all kids ages 12 and under (while supplies last). Many of Louie’s mascot pals will also be in attendance to celebrate the big day. There will also be a Louie T-Shirt Giveaway, presented by Money One Federal Credit Union, to the first 500 kids ages 12 and under through the main stadium gates. Members of Louie’s Kids Club can purchase discounted tickets to this event and get early admission at 12:30 p.m. for free use of the Kid’s Park until 1:00 p.m.
