The Bowie Baysox, Double-A Affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles have announced their 2024 promotional schedule. In conjunction with that, single-game tickets are now on-sale at baysox.com for all 69 2024 regular season home games.

Bowie’s season will open at home, Friday, April 5th with a 7:05pm first pitch against the Reading Fightin Phils. All fans will receive a Baysox 2024 Magnet Schedule courtesy of Steamfitters UA Local 602 and Fireworks will follow the game.

“There is so much energy and excitement around Baysox baseball and all of Birdland heading into 2024,” Baysox General Manager Brian Shallcross said. “Our staff has worked hard to put together a great promotional schedule and we can’t wait to welcome our fans back to Prince George’s Stadium for the start of the season.”

The Baysox are adding two new weekly promotions to their 2024 slate. Every Friday will be a “Gotta Have Faith Friday.” You Gotta Have Faith in the Baysox! If the Baysox win, all fans will receive a $10 box ticket voucher for a future Sunday – Thursday 2024 regular season game as they exit Prince George’s Stadium.

Gates will open 90 minutes prior to every Baysox Sunday home game.
