Orioles host Play Ball Days, presented by Nike

As part of Major League Baseball’s Play Ball campaign, the Orioles will host a series of Play Ball Days, presented by Nike, at four local Maryland Title I schools, impacting more than 2,100 children. Events will take place throughout the week from Monday, June 6, through Thursday, June 9, and will not be open to the public. Play Ball Day is an Orioles-themed field day event for elementary and middle school aged children, designed to grow the game of baseball and inspire recreational play among underserved communities.

Members of the Orioles Orange & Black Gives Back employee volunteer program, as well as front office staff and mascots of our Minor League affiliates will be on hand in their respective communities to assist with the events. For more information, visit Orioles.com/PlayBall
