Orioles' "Birdland Passport" program returns in 2016

The Orioles today announced that the popular Birdland Passport program, designed to reward fans who visit Oriole Park at Camden Yards and the Orioles' local minor league affiliate ballparks, will return for another season. All five minor league affiliates - the Norfolk Tides, Bowie Baysox, Frederick Keys, Delmarva Shorebirds, and Aberdeen IronBirds - will continue to participate this season.

"The Birdland Passport program is a unique initiative that encourages fans to experience our national pastime throughout the Mid-Atlantic Region," said GREG BADER, Orioles Vice President of Communications & Marketing. "This program is especially appealing to families, who value family-friendly, affordable entertainment choices throughout the summer."

Fans can sign up for a complimentary passport at the Fan Assistance Center in the Warehouse at Oriole Park or at any of the five minor league ballparks. Fans who visit five of the six Orioles affiliated ballparks and have their passport marked with a 2016 stamp will receive a limited edition Orioles travel mug (one per customer, per passport). Those who visit all six ballparks in one season will be entered for a chance to win a trip for two to see the Birds play in 2017 at Ed Smith Stadium in Sarasota, Fla.
