Orioles games just got more budget friendly for families. Kids under the age of 9 can now watch the Birds for FREE.
The new “Kids Cheer Free” initiative invites parents to bring their kids to games — compliments of the team. Every adult who purchases a regularly-priced individual game ticket in the Upper Deck will be invited to bring up to two children (ages 9 and under) to the ballpark free of charge.
“Kids Cheer Free” tickets for games from March 31 through April 29 can be reserved now online at orioles.com/kidsfree, at the Oriole Park Box Office, and at the Official Orioles Team Store at the York Galleria in York, Pa., subject to availability. Tickets to remaining games will be made available on a month-by-month basis, as the season progresses.
The only black out date (so far) is Opening Day. But that’s ok because “Kids Opening Day” on April 1st is (cool)er for the pint-sized crowd anyway!
“Our goal is nothing less than to make Camden Yards the most kid-friendly and budget-friendly ballpark in the game,” said John Angelos, Orioles executive vice president, in an interview with Baltimore Business Journal. “Outreach to youth is obviously a big priority across baseball, and we’re trying to go above and beyond and get more kids in the ballpark.”
The O’s are known for making ‘an afternoon at the ballpark’ super family friendly. For the 2018 season, the club has revised food and beverage offerings and is now providing small, medium, and large portion options at new price points throughout the ballpark. (You can also bring in your own food and beverage). The team will also be offering their fireworks show after after Friday night home game this season. If you’re headed to a game, be sure to check out Camden Yards’ newly expanded Kids Corner (adjacent to Gate C). The Corner features The Bird House, a new interactive treehouse activity center and jungle gym for children. Don’t worry — the moon bounce, skee-ball, and throwing inflatable is still there, too.
