"The Baysox Free Family FunFest is a great event to unofficially kick off the 25th Season of Baysox baseball!," Baysox Marketing Director Brandan Kaiser said in the press release. "It's an event families look forward to and they get to experience the ballpark and what we have to offer before the first pitch is thrown April 13th."

Below is the list of activities provided by the Baysox in the press release:
