Baseball season is here for the Baltimore Orioles! Well, at least for today at least. Starting at 11 AM (10 AM for season ticket holders) fans can take a respite from winter and begin their Birdland summer with Orioles FanFest. (Check out the Orioles’ office FanFest site by clicking here.)
The event is, as always, at the Baltimore Convention Center, and admission is $12 (if you don’t already have tickets, that is). I tell people every year that FanFest is a great event for kids of all ages – yes, even very old kids who love the Orioles and who love baseball! There are exhibits, silent auctions, merchandise sales, ticket sales, autograph booths, and much more. It’s truly a well-produced event, and it’s put on every year by the Sarasota Convention and Visitors’ Bureau.
FanFest is everything you get to experience at an Orioles’ game at Camden Yards – except the game. Fans will also get the opportunity to ask questions of players and coaches, so as to get their take on the upcoming season. As I said, it’s a great event.
So consider joining us down at the Convention Center today, between 11:00 AM – 6:00 PM. This is always the kick-off of the new season in a sense. And that’s especially true this year, as pitchers and catchers report on February 13th. That means that before you know it you’ll be seeing real game recaps here on The Orange Crush – as opposed to fluff articles such as this one!
