Baysox plan two one-day bus trips in 2010

Have you ever wondered what it's like to travel like a minor league baseball player?

Well, it's hard to get the full experience without actually being on a team, but the Double-A Bowie Baysox will offer two chances for fans to get a small glimpse into the lifestyle in 2010.


On Sunday, May 2, the Baysox plan to take a bus full of fans to watch the team face the Richmond Flying Squirrels -- the new Double-A affiliate of the San Francisco Giants.

The game is scheduled for 2:05 p.m., and the bus will leave Prince George's Stadium at 10:30 a.m. Fans must report to the stadium by 10:15 a.m.


The Baysox also scheduled a trip to allow fans to watch the Triple-A Norfolk Tides take on the Louisville Bats, the Cincinnati Reds affiliate, on Sunday, June 27 at 1:15 p.m.

For the Norfolk game, fans must report to the stadium by 8:15 a.m. and the bus will depart at 8:30 a.m. The Baysox hosted a similar bus trip to Norfolk last year.

"Our fans had a blast with last year's bus trip," Baysox promotions manager Chris Rogers said in a statement.

Tickets are $55 per person for each trip, which includes admission to the game and round-trip transportation.

Food and drinks are not included, but fans are permitted to bring both onto the buses. In accordance with Eastern League and International League rules, however, fans will not be allowed to bring food or drinks into the stadiums.
