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.
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.
