Orioles announce 'Birdland Passport' program
BALTIMORE -- The Orioles unveiled their new "Birdland Passport" program on Wednesday.

Fans who make trips to Camden Yards and each of the Orioles' five Minor League affiliates -- the Norfolk Tides, Bowie Baysox, Frederick Keys, Delmarva Shorebirds and Aberdeen IronBirds -- will be eligible to win a trip for two to Sarasota, Fla., for O's Spring Training in 2013.

Fans who visit at least five destinations will receive a free Birdland Roadtrip T-shirt.

"The program is designed to encourage our fans to frequent not only Oriole Park at Camden Yards, but also all of our Minor League affiliates' ballparks, which are all within a short drive from Baltimore," Orioles director of communications Greg Bader said in a release. "Baseball is the most affordable sport and is the perfect family outing. We hope the Birdland Passport prompts fans to visit each of this region's great ballparks."

Those interested in participating can pick up a passport or stamp at the Fan Assistance Center in the Warehouse at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. Passports and stamps will also be available at the fan assistance centers of each of the Minor League affiliates.
