Welcome back IronBirds fans to the first Mailbox Monday of 2014. We had a lot of great questions submitted over the holidays, but make sure to keep sending them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Sarah writes: “Are the IronBirds participating in any community events in January?”
IB: Yes Sarah we are! On January 25th, many members of the IronBirds staff, including myself, will be taking on the cold temperatures and jumping in the Maryland Polar Bear Plunge. We are currently raising money to benefit the Maryland Special Olympics and the Arc Northern Chesapeake. Check out this link if you want to join our team or support our efforts!
John writes: “Do we know who the 2014 coaching staff will be for the IronBirds?”
IB: Not yet, but we hope to find out soon. There is a chance there will be some changes with the staff, but we are hoping Matt Merullo will be back to lead us to another league title!
Lou asks: “Where do the Orioles’ minor league players go for Spring Training?”
IB: The Orioles have the Spring Training locations in Sarasota, Florida. The minor league teams play their Spring Training games at the Buck O’Neil Baseball Complex at Twin Lakes Park. The major league players play their games at Ed Smith Stadium.
Thanks again to all of our great fans for submitting questions over the holiday. Remember to keep emailing your questions to email@example.com to see if yours gets answered next week!
Make sure to check back on Thursday for second video blog and our first former player interview! You will have to check in to see which player we interviewed!
Until then….Go IronBirds!
