The Baltimore Orioles announced this week that children ages 9 and under can attend games at Camden Yards for free this season as part of a new initiative called Kids Cheer Free.
The program is unique in Major League Baseball and aims to bring more families to the park. Adults who buy an upper deck ticket can add up to two free tickets for children.
Tickets for March 31 to April 29 are now on sale. Tickets for games after April 29 will be made available on a month-by-month basis as the season continues.
Kids Cheer Free is one part of an expansion of children’s programing. Here are other new offerings:
- The Orioles are expanding their Kids’ Corner near Gate C to include a new interactive center and new food and beverage options.
- After each Sunday home game, kids ages 4 to 14 can run the bases.
- Concessions offerings will now include more options in small, medium and large sizes at new price points.
- Every Friday night home game from May through August will include a post-game fireworks show and also music performances. Saturday games will include pre-game performances. In previous years, the club sponsored fireworks shows after select Friday night home games and they were a big hit with fans.
- A special Kids’ Opening Day will be held Sunday, April 1 as the Orioles play the Minnesota Twins.
- This year’s giveaways, another popular item among fans, will include shirts for children along with other items.
- In addition, the Orioles will continue to offer the popular Junior Orioles Dugout Club and OriolesREACH Gameday Experience Program.
Take us out to the ball game!
