AA Bowie Baysox Unveil 2017 Promotional Schedule, Tons of Great Promos on Tap

Tis' the season! No, not holiday season, but the time of year when minor league and major league baseball teams unveil their promotional schedules for the upcoming season! The Baltimore Orioles' AA affiliate, the Bowie Baysox, joined the party Thursday and unveiled their promotional schedule for the 2017 season.

The Baysox announced the promotional schedule, both via live Facebook video as well as press release.

The Baysox will be celebrating their 25th season in 2017 and their promotional schedule is packed with cool and unique promos to give you even added incentive to head to Prince George's Stadium.

To sum up the Baysox promotional schedule, which is so packed that it's just too long to go over each one here, but the 2017 season will include 19 fireworks nights, special celebrations of the 25th season, bobbleheads, special celebrity appearances, Paw Patrol days, PJ Masks days, and so much more.

I do feel the need to highlight a few promotions in particular because they are both unique, and really grab me as a fan.

First one, is the greatly anticipated return of Maryland Pride Night, that will include a Maryland Flag Floppy Hat giveaway and will take place on Sunday, June 4.

In addition, you are probably well aware by now that I am a big Seinfeld fan, and we have already seen the Keys announce that John O'Hurley (J. Peterman) will be a celebrity guest at a game this year, and now the Baysox unveiled that Steve Hytner (Kenny Bania) will be at Bowie on Saturday, July 22.

If you are looking for promotions centered towards the youngsters, don't worry, the Baysox have that covered this year. Per the press release, "the Baysox have a slew of activities planned for younger fans, highlighted by appearances from many popular kids TV/movie characters. The Baysox will celebrate a pair of PAW Patrol Days with Marshall, Skye and Rubble Sunday, May 21 and with Chase and Everest on Sunday, July 23. The Baysox have again partnered with Coder Kids Club for Minefest Day Sunday, April 30 and the Touch-A-Truck event returns Saturday, Aug. 12 with a giveaway for kids. Plus, kids (and parents) will be able to meet the characters from PJ Masks on Sunday, April 30 and Moana on Saturday, July 8 during the Baysox Island Luau."

The final thing I want to point out is that the Baysox will once again have weekly recurring promotions, which are great in their own right:

The Baysox continue to offer weekly recurring promotions that last throughout the season. Monday nights will again be Mutt Mondays, where fans can bring their dogs to the game. On Tailgate Tuesdays, fans can enter the ballpark early for batting practice and enjoy $2 draft beer specials in the Bud Light Picnic Pavilion from 5 p.m. until the start of the game (excluding May 2 and July 4). On Tuesday, fans can also enjoy Dollar Dog Night where hot dogs are just $1 from the time the main gates open until the 7th inning stretch (Limit 2 hot dogs per person, per transaction. Excluding May 2, July 4, Aug. 8). The Baysox will again show their Orioles Pride by celebrating Orange Wednesday during each Wednesday night home game. During those games, fans who wear Baysox or Orioles gear will receive $5 off a box seat purchased at the ticket office the day of the game. Every Wednesday is also Military Appreciation Night, where anyone able to show proof of military service can purchase a box seat ticket for $8 (excluding May 3 and May 24).

It's setting up to be a fun year at Prince George's Stadium this season!
