The Mayor was delighted to announce the O's were partnering with the Baltimore City Schools to have their baseball championship game held at Oriole Park for the next two years.
As the Mayor observed, giving high school student athletes the opportunity to play the biggest game of their lives at the greatest baseball stadium in the country is priceless. The inaugural game will take place May 5th at 2:00pm. Admission is free, and Councilman Scott will be working with the recreation department to bring little league teams from throughout the city to enjoy the fun.
Speaking for the O's, Doug Duennes, Vice President of Business Operations, said “Hosting Baltimore City’s baseball championship will be a highlight for the ball club, and we welcome the opportunity to utilize our ballpark for this important community event."
We at the Stadium Authority take great pride in efforts made by our teammates to make these facilities available for activities that support the community and events that more Marylanders can enjoy.
We're looking forward to that tournament final on May 5th, and also to welcoming Dr. Alonso and the School Choice Fair back next November.
