Any customer wishing to purchase alcohol products MUST be at least 21 years of age. Prince George's Stadium and Unique Food & Beverage (UFB) reserve the right to request the identification of anyone who attempts to purchase alcohol, as well as at any time during the event. The sale of alcohol stops at the end of the seventh inning. By law, all alcohol MUST remain inside the stadium. Prince George's Stadium's servers reserve the right to refuse alcohol service to anyone.
Any patron purchasing alcohol for minors will be prosecuted, as well as those consuming alcohol that are under the legal drinking age. Should you be caught consuming alcohol under the legal drinking age, the alcohol will be confiscated, and further prosecution will be handled by the Park Police Department.
Fans reaching high levels of intoxication, or those acting in a disruptive manner, detrimental to the experience of other fans, will be removed from the stadium. Intervention with unruly, impaired, or intoxicated guests will be handled promptly and safely.
For your convenience, there is an ATM machine located inside the Team Store located just inside the main stadium gates. The ATM Machine is available when the stadium gates are opened to the public through the end of the event.
Fans are welcome to seek autographs from players along the First Base (Sections 119-123) and Third Base (Sections 120-124) railings near the field prior to the start of the game. Autograph seekers will be asked to leave the seating area if a fan or fans that have purchased tickets to those areas arrive and wish to take their seats or if the autograph area becomes out of control. Fans are not allowed to come onto the field at anytime to seek autographs or photographs with players from either team. (This autograph policy may be affected due to Covid-19 social distancing requirements, pod seating & Major League Baseball regulations for the 2021 season)
Each fan may carry one (1) clear plastic, vinyl or PVC bag OR a one-gallon Ziploc style bag - plus a small clutch. The larger clear bag must be a standard 12" by 6" by 12" bag, made of clear PVC/Vinyl and is easily searched. The one-gallon Ziploc-style bag is readily available, inexpensive and easily searched. The small clutch allows for privacy for small personal items and is also easily searched.
This proactive measure both will enhance safety inside and outside the stadium, and speed the security screening process for all Baysox fans. The public deserves to be in a safe, secure environment. This is about both safety and improving the overall fan experience.
Binoculars/Cameras/Smart Phones/Tablets: Binoculars or a phone or camera can be carried into the stadium as long as it is not in its own bag. This is not a restriction on items that fans have been able to bring into the stadium, it is only a restriction on the type of container used to carry items.
Coolers: No coolers of any kind will be allowed for any event.
Diaper Bags: Diapers can be carried in a clear bag. Each member of a family, including children, is allowed to carry an approved clear bag and a clutch purse into the stadium.
Seat Cushions: Approved seat cushions may be carried into the stadium. Large traditional seat cushions that have pockets, zippers, compartments, or covers are not permitted. Clear seat cushions and seat pads without pockets, zippers, compartments or covers are permitted.
Are all purses prohibited? No. Unlike some event venues, we are not banning all bags. Small clutch purses, with or without a handle or strap, are permitted along with either the 12" x 6" x 12" clear tote bag or the one-gallon freezer bag. No buckles, grommets/hardware, or decor can be concealing any part of the bag. This should enable you to carry essential items into the ballpark as you have been able to in previous seasons.
If I have certain items that I need to bring into the stadium for medical reasons and they won't fit in the clear bag, what do I do? Exceptions to the above policy can be made for medically necessary items after proper inspection. Individuals will be present at stadium entrances to allow screening of these bags and medically necessary items.
Do I have to put everything I'm carrying into the permissible bags? No. we are limiting only the type of bags carried into the stadium, not the items that have been allowed into the stadium in the past. Therefore, you can carry in your pockets or jacket: keys, makeup, feminine products, phone, wallet, credit cards, etc. if you choose not to put them in a clear bag or clutch. You can carry a blanket over your arms and binoculars/camera around your neck or in your hands without the case. You can use the clear bag and/or clutch to carry other items. You will continue to have the flexibility to bring approved items into the stadium. Every member of your family may carry items in a permissible bag.
What happens if I show up at the gate with a bag that is not permitted? Fans carrying bags that do not meet the criteria listed above, will be turned away from the stadium before they enter the stadium gates to return the unapproved bag back to their vehicle.
All bags are subject to being inspected by security and tagged. The Baysox reserve the right to disallow any container, bag or sack at any time for any stadium event. If a guest refuses an inspection of their bag, they will not be permitted into the stadium.
