End­ing spe­cial days in May

The Mon­kees, who have been on the road for years, will mark their 50th an­niver­sary with a tour which will con­tinue through Oc­to­ber. Dates and places are not avail­able now so keep look­ing for this in­for­ma­tion. This band with Mickey Dolenz and Peter Tork has a new al­bum, Good Times, avail­able May 27 and can be pur­chased at iTunes for $10.

Ham­burg­ers—good eat­ing and there are a va­ri­ety of places to pur­chase one if you do not want to cook your own. May 28 is Na­tional Hamburger Day.

And, Me­mo­rial Day, May 30, a na­tional hol­i­day, is con­sid­ered to be the big­gest beef-eat­ing day of the year. Yes, and the grills will be burn­ing with smoke fill­ing the air as the smell of “beef” be­ing cooked is ev­ery­where. Have a happy hol­i­day this Me­mo­rial Day week­end. Do some trav­el­ing as the beaches will be a good place to be as you en­joy the foods, weather and, of course, the sun­shine.

Lo­cal base­ball

Satur­day, June 4, is Fire­works and Base­ball Bash at Baysox Sta­dium, 4101 N.E. Crain High­way, Bowie. This event will be a time to meet and celebrate base­ball his­tory where there will be a trib­ute and ap­pear­ances by former All-Amer­i­can Girls Pro­fes­sional Base­ball League play­ers and former Ne­gro League play­ers. The game time is 6:35 p.m.

Sun­day, June 5, Daniel Tiger comes to Baysox Sta­dium. The Baysox base­ball team, the AA mi­nor league af­fil­i­ate of the Bal­ti­more Ori­oles, will host “A Day in the Neigh­bor­hood” where kids and fam­i­lies will be able to meet and take pho­tos with Daniel Tiger. The game starts at 2 p.m. The Baysox play games here in Bowie reg­u­larly. Some are day games but there are also week­end games. Some games are evening games.

The Baysox games have a va­ri­ety of en­ter­tain­ment for ev­ery­one. They play early games on week­days where school buses loaded with chil­dren visit the sta­dium. Chil­dren are in­vited to the field where they are to com­pete in spe­cial games and win prizes. Ev­ery­one watches as the game moves on and balls are hit. It is fun to watch as the balls that are hit fly into the sta­dium where peo­ple run to fol­low the base­ball and try to get the ball. But the ex­cite­ment, with hand claps and laughs from the crowd, is seen and heard all over the ball park as some­one catches the ball and is glad to hold up his hand to dis­play that ball. Some of the peo­ple, in­clud­ing the chil­dren, come pre­pared with their own glove to catch the ball. And, of course, the chil­dren know how to se­lect good foods that they en­joy dur­ing the game. You can call the sta­dium at 301-805-6000 for dates and times of games, ticket cost, seat­ing ar­range­ment and other in­for­ma­tion.
