Last season the Baltimore Orioles held a first time event, which they called the Father's Day Catch on the Field, and after the event sold out, the Orioles announced earlier this week via press release that it is returning this season.
The team announced that the Father's Day Catch on the Field Package is available for $200 and includes two Left Field Lower Box tickets (sections 66-86), the unique opportunity to play catch on the field for two participants ($100 for each additional participant), two soft baseballs and a donation to the Orioles Charitable Foundation. The upgraded Catch on the Field Package is available for $248 ($124 for each additional participant) and includes two Field Box tickets (sections 56-58). Additional online fees apply. A presale for Orioles Season Plan Holders will take place at 10:00 a.m. this Saturday.
This year's even will of course, take place on Father's Day on Sunday, June 15 prior to the game against the Toronto Blue Jays. The team added a third session to allow more fans the opportunity take part in this.
Beginning this Saturday at 11:00 a.m., all fans may purchase one of two ticket packages that include a pair of tickets for the 1:35 p.m. game and a 25-minute pre-game session of catch on the Oriole Park field. All of the proceeds will benefit OriolesREACH and the Baltimore Orioles Charitable Foundation.
If you take part in the event, the team also stated that registration on June 15 will take place from 10:30- noon at Schaefer Circle, outside of Home Plate Plaza, located on the southwest corner of the ballpark between Gates D & E. Participants must check-in 15 minutes prior to their session. In the event of inclement weather, a makeup date will be determined. Fans are advised that availability is limited and this event will sell out. To purchase a Father's Day Catch on the Field Package, fans should visit www.orioles.com/catch.
It is a common bucket list item to step foot onto the field at Camden Yards for most Orioles fans, and what a better time to fulfil that than with your father or son as part of Father's Day?
