Orioles beat writers Eduardo and Encina talk about the new O's promotional giveaways this upcoming season.
The Orioles announced their promotions and special events schedule for the upcoming season Wednesday morning.
The promotions schedule includes two bobblehead giveaways: a Dylan Bundy bobblehead on June 12 against the Boston Red Sox and a Trey Mancini bobblehead on July 28 against the Tampa Bay Rays. Both will be given out to the first 25,000 fans ages 15 and over.
New giveaways include a Buck “Snowalter” snow globe to be given away June 25 to the first 25,000 fans 15 and over as part of the team’s “Halfway to Christmas” promotion.
The popular Maryland flag script jersey giveaway will return for the second straight year, this time with the Orioles giving away a black script jersey to the first 35,000 fans 15 and over on July 14. Orioles players and field staff will also wear Maryland flag script jerseys for that day’s game against the Texas Rangers.
The Orioles will give away pashmina scarves to celebrate Mother’s Day on May 13 and give away neck ties as part of their Father’s Day promotion on June 17.
The team will also have eight postgame fireworks nights, up from five last season, following every Friday home game from May through August.
Also, after every Sunday home game kids ages 4 to 14 can run the bases. There are 13 Sunday home games with this opportunity.
The Orioles released their promotions schedule in correlation with the single-game tickets going on sale to the general public Thursday. Those who subscribed to the Orioles’ email newsletter are eligible for a presale starting Wednesday.
