SALISBURY, Md. -- The Delmarva Shorebirds, Class-A affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles, will be auctioning off the Maryland Pride Jerseys that the team has worn every Thursday home game during the 2017 season on Thursday, August 24th during their game against the Hickory Crawdads.
The Shorebirds started embracing fans' love for the Maryland State Flag this year by implementing Maryland Pride Thursday for every Thursday home game by wearing jerseys that model the Maryland State Flag.
The auction will be on the second level concourse and will last until the first pitch of the sixth inning, when it will turn into a live auction.
All proceeds will go to the Shorebirds' Fly Together Fund. The Fly Together Fund is used to help fund local community projects, with a focus on youth centers and youth sports.
First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 PM on Thursday, August 24th with gates set to open at 6:00 PM.
The Shorebirds celebrated their 20th season in 2015, and have entertained over five million fans since beginning play at Arthur W. Perdue Stadium in Salisbury, Md. in 1996. The team has captured South Atlantic League titles in 1997 and 2000 while successfully hosting the South Atlantic League All-Star Game in 1999 and 2011.
