BALTIMORE ó The Baltimore Orioles have launched a program that will enable kids to attend home games this season free of charge.
Fulfilling a childís request to "take me out to the ballpark" has become a lot cheaper at Camden Yards. Every adult who purchases a regularly-priced upper deck ticket can bring up to two children, age 9 or under.
The "Kids Cheer Free" program begins for the March 31 game against Minnesota.
The program is designed to bolster attendance and is part of the teamís effort to attract youngsters to the game.
Orioles executive vice president John Angelos says, "The Oriolesí mission, and that of the national game of baseball, is to cast a broad community outreach. That effort starts with thoughtfully expanding our initiatives benefiting kids and families,"
Tickets are available for games through April 29. Tickets to remaining games will be made available on a month-by-month basis, as the season progresses.
