Orioles to Host Nearly 1,400 At-Risk Children During American League Division Series Games 1 and 2
“OriolesREACH Knothole Gang” gives kids a chance to experience Postseason baseball; Orioles also auctioning off front row tickets to ALDS Games 1 & 2 for charity
The Orioles are inviting at-risk children to attend Games 1 and 2 of the American League Division Series through a program called the OriolesREACH Knothole Gang. Nearly 1,400 children will be experiencing the excitement of Postseason baseball from Sections 96 and 98 at Oriole Park at Camden Yards, courtesy of the Orioles.
Additionally, in an effort to raise funds for these non-profit groups, the Orioles are auctioning off several pairs of front row, field box tickets to ALDS Game 1 and ALDS Game 2. Fans are encouraged to visit www.orioles.com/auction until Tuesday, September 30 at 8:00 p.m. (for Game 1) and Wednesday, October 1 at 8:00 p.m. (for Game 2) to place their bids.
The OriolesREACH Knothole Gang pays homage to the International League Baltimore Orioles’ decision in 1930 to allow kids to see games at the old Oriole Park for free. The children were allowed in at no charge as part of a group dubbed the “Knothole Gang,” created when team management relented after years of children sneaking in (or “hooking in”) to the ballpark by tunneling under or climbing over the fence to watch games.
We would like to thank the Orioles for providing 100 tickets for City Springs Elementary/Middle School students and for auctioning off 2 front row, field box tickets to ALDS Game 1 to benefit City Springs EMS/Baltimore Curriculum Project.
