The Orioles, as you may have heard, are not very good. According to an article published in The Ringer this morning, the 2019 Orioles could very well go down as the worst team in professional baseball history.
But the remainder of the season isn’t going to play itself, and the marketing department at the B&O Warehouse is doing its best to get butts in the seats.
To that end, the team today announced two additional promo nights for the second half of the season, one celebrating Netflix’s ’80s sci-fi series “Stranger Things” and another for professional wrasslin’.
Both giveaways are scheduled for back-to-back nights on the first weekend of August.
Fans who purchase a special ticket package for “Stranger Things” Night, on Aug. 2, will give receive an Oriole Bird bobblehead done up to look like Dustin, the show’s mesh hat-wearing member of the friend group that uncovers a portal to an alternate dimension.
On Aug. 3, the club will offer two packages for WWE Night, and if you’re aware of the sports entertainment company’s drifter musician character Elias, you probably know where this is going. One package offers a t-shirt that has Elias, the wrestler, along with Mike Elias, the Orioles’ general manager. A limited package allows 50 fans the chance to meet and get a photo with the drifter.
Also on deck: Bark at Oriole Park #2 on Sept. 10 and O’stoberfest on Sept. 20.
