Cup of jO's: Orioles Announce Military Appreciation Program

Last night, Mark Reynolds hit two homeruns and is making us look a little silly.  Unbeknownst to you all, we were involved in an exercise with ESPN's Sweetspot network to simulate an expansion draft.  Mark Reynolds was left off our initial protection list, our first pull back, and our second pull back.  Our perspective was that the money due to him would be better spent elsewhere.  Oh well...more troubling was Kevin Gregg harking back to his Cubs and Marlins' says when he had average luck.  O's lost in extra frames.


For those of you in our Armed Forces, we felt the Orioles new program would be of interest:

Orioles Announce New Military Appreciation Program

Program includes ticket offers, suite donations for military and families

Aspects of the Program:
  1. Ticket discounts at every game - the Orioles are offering a $3 discount off of all tickets for all military (active, retired, and reserve) and their families, available at the Oriole Park Box Office.  More significant discounts for military members can be arranged by contacting their ITT/Leisure Travel office.
  2. Military Sundays - During non-prime games on Sundays, members of the military (active, retired, and reserve) are available for buy one, get one free for select sections through their ITT/Leisure Travel Office.
  3. Sunday Suite Program - Every Sunday game, Orioles donate a catered private suite to wounded soldiers and other active military groups and their families.  Guests will be treated to a special player meet and greet before the game, recognition after the playing of "God Bless America" and will receive t-shirts and hats.  Jake Arrieta, Zach Britton, Jim Johnson, Luke Scott, and Matt Wieters will all participate in the program.
  4. Active Duty Special Offer - Show your active duty ID badge at the Warehouse's Fan AssistanceCenter to receive a complementary Orioles cap.
  5. Welcome Home Scoreboard Messages - Orioles offer free "Welcome Home" messages, call 888-848 Bird to get more information.
Hope this enables the Orioles to thank many of you.
