The Ironbirds released their promotional schedule via press release.

This season's promotional schedule is jam-packed for the Ironbirds. It all begins with Opening Night on Tuesday, June 19 when there will be entertainment provided by Super Fan Cameron Hughes as well as a post-game fireworks show.

Entertainment is a common theme throughout the promotion schedule as such entertainment acts as ZOOperstars (July 7-8) and Dynamo Dogs (July 14) will perform at Leidos Field at Ripken Stadium this season.

Perhaps the most well known promotion of the season will be on August 11 when the Ironbirds will become the Aberdeen Steamed Crabs for one night to honor Maryland's favorite pastime.

In addition, other promotions at the ballpark will include Super Hero Night (July 9), Christmas in July (July 21), Star Wars Night (July 22) and Fan Appreciation Night (September 5).

There will be some regularly occurring theme nights as well, which includes Military Appreciation Sundays and Throwback Thursday Nights. Every Sunday home game will also provide the opportunity for kids 14 and under to run the bases after the game.

Perhaps one of the most unique promotions occurring at Ripken Stadium this year will be when the Ironbirds are not on the field. Throughout the 2017 season, the Ironbirds will host Community Movie Nights (June 2, July 1, August 4, September 9) where family and friends can watch free movie showings from the outfield on the new 1,500 square foot HD video board.

It's setting up to be a terrific year at Ripken Stadium, and you can begin purchasing Ironbirds tickets for the 2017 season on Saturday, May 13.
