Baysox Unveil 2013 Promotional Schedule


March 13, 2013 6:24 AM ET

BOWIE, Md. - The Bowie Baysox announce today the full promotional schedule for the 2013 season.  The schedule includes 20 fireworks nights, a number of family-friendly events, multiple giveaways, recurring weekday events and a wide variety of theme nights. 

Baysox Promotions Manager Chris Rogers is excited to unveil some new theme nights this season.  "The fireworks nights are always fan favorites, but we have plenty of other great nights planned this season," Rogers said.  "Celebrating off-season holidays during the baseball season has become a tradition of sorts.  We've done Christmas, Valentine's Day, and even Festivus. This year we are celebrating Thanksgiving on a Thursday in June and immediately following it up with Orange & Black Friday Night that will include door busters and a huge crowd awaiting our opening."

The 2013 promo schedule is a mixture of popular events from past seasons and new ideas that everyone is sure to enjoy. The popular Star Wars Night with actors in movie quality costumes is back along with Pi(e) Night and Daddy-Daughter Date Night. Among the promotions new for 2013 are a Night at the Races featuring the Bowie Studs, Bellies & Baseball - a celebration of new and expecting mothers and the More Cowbell world record attempt with cowbell giveaway.

While the whole family can enjoy fireworks, the Baysox have a slew of activities planned for younger fans.  Kids can learn to play tennis with the United States Tennis Association on Aces & Bases night, where there will be a tennis beach ball giveaway.  The following month, kids can rock out with Washington D.C.-based family-friendly rock band Rocknoceros during a pregame concert. In addition specific theme nights, younger fans can enjoy special exclusive events for members of Louie's Kids Club each month of the season. Kids Club membership is free and more information is available at
