The Wall Street Journal‘s Jason Gay just wrote a column praising the Orioles for their new Kids Cheer Free program, and deservedly so. It truly is one of the best deals in professional sports: Adults who buy an upper deck ticket can bring up to two kids ages 9 or younger for free.
Earlier today, the team announced that, after initially releasing tickets on a month-by-month basis, it would instead put them all on sale now.
To further create a more family-friendly night at the ballpark, the O’s have expanded their menu offerings to include more affordable options. While we were mostly excited about the beer, the new menu also has $1.50 hot dogs and sodas for kids.
Executive vice president John Angelos, son of majority owner Peter Angelos, told the Journal that ticket-takers won’t be checking for birth certificates at the turnstiles, too, so the team isn’t exactly going to be a stickler about it either.
The O’s may be off to a sluggish 1-5 start, but this is something everyone can cheer about.
