Orioles to host Play Clinic at Oriole Park Friday

On Friday, July 27 KEVIN GREGG and members of the Orioles training staff, in conjunction with the PLAY Campaign, will welcome 100 youth from the Y of Central Maryland and HC Drug Free. PLAY, which stands for Promoting a Lifetime of Activity for Youth, is a public awareness campaign of the Professional Baseball Athletic Trainers Society (PBATS), in conjunction with the Taylor Hooton Foundation. The PLAY campaign combats childhood obesity and promotes healthy living and decision making among young people throughout the country. Gregg will speak to the youth about making smart life choices, avoiding drugs, and living a more active and healthy lifestyle.

DAY CAMPER DAY On Thursday, July 26, the Orioles will host their annual Day Camper Day. Over 4,300 day campers from 50 different camps around Maryland and the Mid-Atlantic region will attend the Orioles' 12:35 p.m. game against the Tampa Bay Rays.

ORIOLES MILITARY APPRECIATION PROGRAM As part of the Orioles' Military Appreciation Program, sponsored by GEICO, the Orioles and OriolesREACH donate a catered private suite at each Sunday home game at Oriole Park to servicemen and women. This Sunday, July 29, military members from Blue Star Families will enjoy the game vs. the Oakland Athletics from a catered suite and will have an opportunity for a meet and greet with ZACH BRITTON, and receive an Under Armour Player t-shirt.

STEAL SECOND BASE PRESENTED BY ESSKAY The Orioles will again feature the Steal Second Base contest for every Sunday home game this season. Presented by ESSKAY, the Steal Second Base contest allows a young fan to participate in a timed race from the grounds crew area in center field to retrieve second base. Fans can sign up for the opportunity at the ballpark at any Fan Assistance Center. The lucky winner will receive four tickets to that day's game, gift certificates to use inside the park, an Orioles jersey and an Orioles prize pack. This year, for the first time, the contestants will also get to keep the authentic base that they steal. This Sunday's winner is Layla Keyser, a nine year old from Glen Burnie, MD.

GIANT FOOD HONORARY BAT KIDS Once again, the Orioles have partnered with Giant Food stores this summer to host the Giant Honorary Bat Kids program. Children ages 6-14 can enter by filling out an entry form at select Giant Food stores and submitting in the entry box in the store or mailing the form directly to the Baltimore Orioles. This program will take place through August 30. One boy and one girl will be selected to be the Honorary Bat Kids at each Orioles game, excluding Sundays. Winners will receive four tickets to the game, on-field access to watch Orioles batting practice and the opportunity to receive autographs, an Orioles t-shirt and hat. Each winner will also participate in an on-field, pre-game ceremony where they are presented with an official Honorary Bat Boy/Girl certificate and have a photo opportunity with the Oriole Bird.
