The Baltimore Orioles today announced a full slate of themed promotional events throughout the season, including a yoga night and games dedicated to classic kids’ baseball movie “The Sandlot,” HBO’s fantasy epic “Game of Thrones” and good doggos.
Additionally, some other past favorites like #BirdlandSocial, LGBT Pride Night and Father’s Day Catch on the Field will return. In March, the team announced a “Star Wars” night that includes a giveaway featuring a bobblehead of relief pitcher Darren O’Day dressed in a Jedi robe in his signature delivery.
Tickets for all of these games are on sale now.
Here’s the full schedule:
-May 11: “Star Wars” night
Ticket packages are available for the aforementioned O’Day-Wan Kenobi bobblehead. The team will hold a pregame party with characters from the popular sci-fi franchise, but it’s sold out. After the game, fans can enjoy fireworks set to John Williams’ iconic score and other music from the series.
-June 2: “The Sandlot” Movie Night
After the Saturday afternoon game against the New York Yankees, fans can stick around to watch the 1993 film about about the motley crew of suburban kids who play baseball all day and square off with a mythical creature of epic size, The Beast. Special ticket packages are available that include a limited edition T-shirt. Proceeds benefit Boys & Girls Clubs of Metropolitan Baltimore, who will have a group present at the game courtesy of the O’s.
-June 16: Yoga at the Yard
Packages include a ticket to the game followed by a yoga session from the Holistic Life Foundation, Orioles-branded yoga mat included. The team is holding an invite-only yoga event earlier that morning for kids from the community.
-June 17: Father’s Day Catch on the Field
Sons and daughters can buy special packages to have a catch with dad on the field at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. A portion of the proceeds benefit a prostate cancer research group at Johns Hopkins. Additionally, the first 20,000 fans age 18 and older will receive an Orioles necktie.
-June 27: LGBT Pride Night
Ticket packages include special edition Orioles pride caps, and a more limited VIP package includes a pregame party on the Center Field Roof Deck.
-June 26 and July 24: #BirdlandSocial
Fans hooked on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat or whatever social media app sweeps the nation between now and the summer will get to chance to interact with the club’s social media-savvy players. The team says additional details will be announced at a later date.
-June 28: Senior Ticket package
A special offer for fans 60 and over includes a game in the shade and an umbrella.
-Aug. 14: “Game of Thrones” Night
Fans of the show can get ticket to a pregame party that includes a photo-op with the famed Iron Throne. Like “Star Wars” Night, this too will feature a special bobblehead, this one depicting starting pitcher Kevin Gausman in some sort of related get-up. But details of that are not yet known.
-Sept. 12: Bark at Oriole Park
Man’s best friend is allowed to join their owner(s) for some late-summer baseball. Ticket packages will include a to-be-named pet-themed giveaway. A portion of the proceeds will benefit the Baltimore Animal Rescue & Care Shelter (BARCS).
