Maryland Lottery and Orioles Hit Homerun with Affordable Game PlanThursday, August 20th, 2009
Free Admission with American Classics tickets, plus $1 Hot Dogs and $1 Sodas for All Fans
In these tough economic times, The Maryland Lottery and the Baltimore Orioles have teamed up to make it easier on the wallet to enjoy a day at the ballpark. The first 400 fans (18 years or older) to present any four non-winning American Classics scratch-offs will get one free admission to Camden Yards on Sunday, August 30th, when the Orioles take on the Cleveland Indians. Additionally, the entire ballpark will be able to take advantage of $1 hot dogs and $1 sodas.
Fans presenting the non-winning American Classics tickets will be seated in a special Maryland Lottery section and have the chance to win a classic baseball trip to Cooperstown along with $2,500 spending money. Baseball fans may redeem their four American Classics tickets for free admission at Oriole Park’s ticket office anytime between today and Sunday, August 30th.
American Classics fun will be featured at the Lottery booth with staff dressed in 50’s attire. There will be hula hoop contests, live entertainment and a special drawing for a tabletop jukebox.
The $3 ticket, with an Americana theme, has an instant top-prize of $30,000, as well as a second-chance contest with another $30,000 grand prize. To enter the second-chance contest, players must mail in any four non-winning American Classics scratch-offs by September 21, 2009. Five finalists will be chosen to compete in the Lottery’s onstage event in Ocean City on October 10th during Cruisin’ Ocean City. All finalists will also receive a two night stay at the Dunes Manor Hotel and $500 in spending money. Go to classics.mdlottery.com for all the details.
