Welcome to the Delmarva Shorebirds Blog! In 2009, I (Bret Lasky) will give you a behind the scenes look at the Single-A affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles. Follow along all season long as we discuss the team, life on the road, bus movie selections, upcoming events, team banter and more.
Well, its 10:00 in the morning on a Saturday and Family Fun Fest is in full swing here at Arthur Perdue Stadium. The Carousel is whipping around down the left-field line, balloons are waving around the park and everyone is having a great time!
In just a couple minutes or so the Easter Egg Hunt will begin. Prizes are on the line for all winners. National Anthem tryouts are also getting set to begin. It’s always interesting the range of singing talent that will perform here.
Hey, players arrive on Sunday! Then, on Thursday, April 9th, the team will load up the bus and depart for Lakewood, New Jersey to ring in the season against the Lakewood BlueClaws. Don’t forget that the team will return to Arthur Perdue Stadium on April 16th for the home opener!
Hope that you enjoy the blog this season and don’t forget to check back regularly!
Until next time–Go Shorebirds!
