Welcome back IronBirds fans! This upcoming spring we have a very busy few months at the stadium. Recently information was released about three upcoming events.
The first event with be the 2nd Annual Hot Stove Dinner. Last year’s Hot Stove Dinner was a huge success and guests had a great time. This year’s event will take place on March 27th from 6:00-9:00 pm on the Club Level. Our guest this year will be our very own Bill Ripken. Bill is currently a network analyst for MLB Network and even received an Emmy nomination this past year for his work. The evening will include a buffet, silent auction, and Q&A session with Bill Ripken. Tickets are still available for $40 per person.
Our second event of the year will take place over two dates. We will be hosting the first ever Ripken Cup on April 15th and May 7th. The University of Maryland Terps will be taking on the Towson Tigers. The winner of the two game series will take home the Ripken Cup. Games will start at 7:05 here at Ripken Stadium. Tickets are on sale now! Prices range from $4-$7 for season seat holders and $5-$10 for the general public.
The third event of the year will be the annual IronFest! IronFest will be bigger than ever this year. This year’s event will take place on May 17th and start at 8 am. The event will kick off with the Amanda Hichkad walk presented by the Upper Chesapeake Health Foundation. All proceeds of this event will go to benefit the Chesapeake Cancer Alliance and Cancer LifeNet. Also that morning, we will be hosting the annual Out of the Ballpark Yard Sale. For the first time entrance to this event will be free! You will have the opportunity to shop vendors to find unique items! Then starting at 9 am you have the opportunity to pick up your season tickets and purchase individual games. Also new to the event this year will be the Family Fun Fest! There will be face painters, balloon artists, live music and more! This should overall be a fun day for the whole family.
