Mar. 12 - 30 Days Of Opening Day

Posted: Updated:

GOOD MORNING DELMARVA - The Delmarva Shorebirds, class "A" affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles, are excited to announce the return of their preseason promotion "30 Days of Opening Day." Starting on March 12th, the Shorebirds will host an event, contest or make an appearance around town each day leading up to the home opener at Perdue Stadium, April 10th vs. Greensboro.
 
The "30 Days of Opening Day" will feature 14 appearances by Sherman, 12 different chances to win t-shirts, hats, bobble heads, tickets, and various other prizes. "The 30 Days of Opening Day promotion has been tremendously successful in the last two years, getting the fans excited about baseball season," said Shorebirds general manager Chris Bitters. "Whether it is through community appearances or fan contests, it's fantastic to see folks on the Eastern Shore share our passion for the Shorebirds."
 
The promotion will kick off on March 12th with Sherman the Shorebird making a guest appearance on Good Morning Delmarva on WMDT to deliver the local weather. After Sherman's report, tune in to the Whiskey & Randy show on Froggy 99.9 to hear what Shorebirds General Manager Chris Bitters has to say about his expectations for the upcoming season.

Sherman will make "tour stops" every Thursday and Friday leading up to the home opener. The Shorebirds will set up outside of different locations around town and will be giving away tickets and prizes. There will be entertainment and games for kids that want to come out and meet Sherman. Each kid can spin the prize wheel to take home a variety of Shorebirds items. The tour stops will begin on Thursday, March 13th at the Autumn Grove Gordy Tiger Mart from 11am to 1pm. On Friday, March 14th, Sherman will be at the Dairy Queen on North Salisbury Boulevard from 5pm to 7pm. The rest of the tour stops will be announced via our Facebook page, our Twitter page (@Shorebirds), or our website www.theshorebirds.com.

In addition to the tour stops, the Shorebirds will hold recurring contests through our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts (@Shorebirds) each Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday during the promotion.

The first weekly contest will be held on Instagram with "Selfie Sunday." Send us your best Shorebirds themed pictures, and use the hashtag #shorebirdsselfie. We will select the best fan photo for each week, with the winner receiving a prize.

New to this year is "Meet the MC Monday." Fans will need to track down on-field emcee Eric Sichau at a local establishment. Eric will leave clues about his location on the Shorebirds' Facebook page throughout each Monday. The first fans to meet up with Eric will win prizes, including tickets to Opening Day.

Each Tuesday will become "Retweet Tuesday" where fans will have a chance to win prizes through Twitter. Fans must follow the Shorebirds account, and then retweet a post sent out on Tuesday to be eligible for prizes.

The final weekly contest will be "Win Stuff Wednesdays." The Shorebirds will be giving away more prizes through Facebook contests. Like our official page to get updates on contests throughout the 30 day promotion.

The Shorebirds will take the field for the first time on April 1st in an exhibition game against local Division III baseball team Salisbury University. Tickets for the game will be available at the Shorebirds Box Office and on the campus at Salisbury University.

On Wednesday, April 2nd, the Shorebirds are hosting a send off party at Perdue Stadium. Fans are encouraged to swing by  and send off the Shorebirds players and coaches in style before they head off to Asheville for the season opener. The Perdue Foundation will also be on hand to kick off the Strike Out Hunger campaign.
 
The "30 Days of Opening Day" will coincide with the home opener against the Greensboro Grasshoppers on April 10th. For more information, please call the Shorebirds front office at (410) 219-3112 or visit the Shorebirds website at www.theshorebirds.com.
