Orioles announce Nickelodeon Day at Oriole Park

The Orioles have teamed up with Nickelodeon to bring SpongeBob SquarePants and Dora the Explorer to Camden Yards for "Nickelodeon Day at Oriole Park." On Sunday, Aug. 14 when the Orioles take on the Detroit Tigers, the two characters will be on site for a variety of activities including Bird Baseball with the Oriole Bird, greeting fans and posing for photographs. SpongeBob and Dora will also be on-field following the game for the exclusive Dugout Club Members-only Kids Run the Bases.

As part of "Nickelodeon Day at Oriole Park," Dora the Explorer and SpongeBob Squarepants will be on the field for a pregame ceremony to present gift bags to youth from Bollman Bridge Elementary School. Bollman Bridge, as part of the Howard County Public School System, strives to achieve Excellence in Education, and the students participating in the ceremony have exemplified this vision through their hard work and dedication to their school responsibilities.

In addition to the pregame ceremony, the characters will be appearing throughout the ballpark, taking pictures with fans, socializing with Dugout Club members, and handing out the Fan of the Game prizes.
