Baysox to Host Educator Appreciation Night on April 20

Are you a teacher or school administrator who loves baseball? If so, you are in luck! The Bowie Baysox will host their annual Educator Appreciation Night presented by Educational Systems Federal Credit Union on Friday, April 20 when the team hosts the Akron RubberDucks at 7:05 p.m.


Any area educator that shows their school ID badge at the Baysox box office on April 20 will receive one complimentary ticket to enjoy the game.


The Baysox will honor all area educators in attendance during the game.


Educators that come out and join us for Educator Appreciation Night will get the chance to watch a Baysox team that is home to four of the Top 10 prospects in the Baltimore Orioles system according to MLB.Com.


Friday’s game is also our annual celebration of the mathematical equation of Pi and students from around the region who can memorize and recite hundreds of places of Pi. There will even be some wack antics with actual Pies throughout the game. Will you get Pied?


April 20 marks the start of a six-game homestand for the Baysox that also includes the first Fireworks show of the year on Saturday, April 21, Bark in the Park Day on Sunday, April 22 and our first Baseball in Education/STEM Day game of the year on Wednesday, April 25.

The Baysox ticket office is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on non-game days, until the top of the 7th inning on non-fireworks game days and at the end of the fireworks show on fireworks game days.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
