Baltimore Orioles to Offer Free Tickets for Kids

The Baltimore Orioles announced Monday it is starting a program called  Kids Cheer Free, in which parents can bring children age 9 and younger  to games for free. "Baseball is the bedrock recreational institution in  American life, where childhood memories are born and family bonds are  forever formed," Greg Bader, Orioles' vice president for communications  and marketing, tells ESPN. "It is our hope that this unprecedented  program will bring the magic of Orioles baseball to families from all  walks of life and ultimately grow our game." Baltimore ranked 23rd in  the majors in home attendance last season, attracting 2,028,424  fans--down from 2,172,344 in 2016. As part of the initiative, every  parent who buys a regularly priced upper-deck seat can get two free  tickets in the upper deck for their kids. The promotion runs  month-to-month, so tickets for games from March 31 to April 29 are  available now.
