Can't wait for Spring Training? Catch an early showing of the O's in Sarasota at the Orioles Family FanFest at Ed Smith Stadium on Saturday, November 14 from 1:30 to 4:00 p.m.
Fans can expect to see Dave Trembley, Adam Jones, Nolan Reimold, Brad Bergesen, Jim Johnson, and Jim Palmer throughout the afternoon, which will feature autograph sessions, O's giveaways, fan forums, a variety of activities for kids - including Kids Run the Bases, and a free hot dog and soda for every fan who attends the event.
Non-roster invitees also include the Orioles Bird, and fans will enjoy free parking and a chance to win a trip to Baltimore (including airfare, hotel stay at the Sheraton Inner Harbor, and O's game tickets compliments of Visit Baltimore and the Sarasota Convention and Visitors Bureau).
The early FanFest event at Ed Smith Stadium will be your first chance to officially welcome the Orioles to Sarasota for spring training.
Orioles Director of Communications Greg Bader noted, "The Orioles are excited to be a part of the Sarasota community, and this event is our first big opportunity to meet many of our neighbors."
So if you're an Orioles fan all the way down in sunny Sarasota, or if you can make your way down for a first look at the O's in their new spring training home, enjoy the chance to see some of your favorite O's during these long offseason months without them here in Baltimore!
