Do you know an active duty or retired member of our Armed Forces? The Baysox want to salute them!

The Bowie Baysox are seeking nominations from members of the Maryland and Washington D.C. region for your Military Heroes to become part of a very special Military Heroes Baseball Card Set that will be given away to the first 1,000 Bowie Baysox Fans (ages 18 & up) entering the stadium on Friday, August 24, 2018 as part of Military Heroes Appreciation Night!

Nominate your Military Hero (active duty or retired) and tell us about their Military Career in the Armed Forces. Be sure to include their service history and awards/commendations and the Bowie Baysox will select approximately 20 submissions to be a part of the Military Heroes Baseball Card Set and to be honored for their service during the Baysox game on Friday, August 24.
