Welcome back IronBirds fans! We are officially two days away from the IronBirds season!!! Today we want to take a look into the opening home stand and fill you in on all of the details you need to know.
Friday, June 20th – Opening Night!!! We want to pack the house for the IronBirds’ first home game. We have the best fans in minor league baseball so let’s show the players how great you are! Gates will open at 6:00 (5:30 for Season Seat Holders) and the first 873 fans will receive a free magnet schedule. There is always a little more pomp and circumstance to Opening Night so the game will be starting at 7:35. After the game we will have the first of our amazing fireworks shows presented by Fireworks Extravaganza!
Saturday, June 21st – Opening weekend is going to be huge. On Saturday we will be celebrating the Orioles! The Oriole Bird will be in attendance as well! Not only will we be celebrating our favorite MLB team, but Dylan Bundy is scheduled to take the mound as well. Gates open at 6:00 with the game starting at 7:05. Get here early because we are expecting another huge crowd to kick off the season!
Sunday, June 22nd – Sunday is our first Family Fun Sunday and we will be celebrating our McNamara Division Championship! On Sunday the gates open at 4:30 (4:00 for Season Seat Holders) and the first 873 fans through the gates will receive a McNamara Division Championship Pennant. You will even be able to take a picture with the trophy! As always, we will also have $1 hot dogs and kids can race the bases after the game!
Monday, June 23rd – ZOOperstars!!! Everyone’s favorite performance act will be returning to Ripken Stadium for their only performance this year. If you have not had a chance to see the ZOOperstars in action, you need to be at the ballpark on Monday. They are a fan favorite and we can guarantee you a good laugh.
Tuesday, June 24th – Superhero Night. This is one of my personal favorite nights and perfect for the kids. We will have several of your favorite Superheroes in attendance on Tuesday to try and protect Ripken Stadium from evil. We encourage all of our fans to wear your favorite Superhero shirt and dust your capes off. Ferrous will need all of your help as we all work together to keep Ripken Stadium safe!
We hope to see everyone at the ballpark for the first home stand. The IronBirds need your support! We do still have tickets available as well. You can purchase tickets online or call the box office at 410-297-9292.
Check back tomorrow for our special tribute to Opening Day!
Until then….Go IronBirds!
