Orioles to host “Birdland Social” featuring Richard Bleier on June 26

The Orioles will host “Birdland Social,” a Social Media Night event on Tuesday, June 26, prior to the 7:05 p.m. ET game against the Seattle Mariners. The exclusive pregame party will take place on the center field Roof Deck with many of the Orioles’ social media followers.

The event will include a question-and-answer session with Orioles reliever Richard Bleier (Instagram: @RichardBleier), hosted by Orioles public address announcer Ryan Wagner (Twitter: @rwags614).

“I am excited to participate in Birdland Social this year. One of the best parts of my job is interacting with fans, both in person and on social media,” said Bleier. “I think Birdland has the best fans, and I can’t wait to meet some of our most-engaged supporters.”

Tickets for the Birdland Social pregame party range from $35 to $60 and include access to the private event, a catered menu, two drink coupons per person, a ticket to the game (Roof Deck, Eutaw Street Bleachers, or Upper Reserve with varied pricing), and an exclusive Richard Bleier Omoji T-shirt. The party will begin at 5:00 p.m. and continue until 6:30 p.m.

New at this year’s event, to allow for earlier access to watch pregame batting practice, Birdland Social attendees will be permitted to enter the ballpark beginning at 4:30 p.m. through the 323 West Camden Street lobby in the Warehouse at Oriole Park. A limited number of tickets are available for purchase exclusively at www.orioles.com/birdlandsocial.

Fans are encouraged to use #BirdlandSocial throughout the game. There will be various promotions and prizes for all fans attending the June 26 game including:

The popular “Catch a #Winner” promotion will return during pre-game batting practice. Fans who retrieve baseballs that have been stamped “#Winner” can redeem a special prize at the Orioles Fan Assistance booth.
