Last summer, I received two of the biggest honors of my career when I a) got to write a print story for the Washington Post about Dylan Bundy and b) subsequently play in the Frederick Keys Media Game a few weeks later. I’ve been going to Keys games with my family since I was a baby in 1989 so it was a thrill to be on the field of my hometown minor league team.
This Saturday, I’m participating in the media game again, but with a few special twists.
The Frederick Keys will be hosting Salute to the O’s Night at 6pm and former Oriole and six-time all-star Harold Baines will be in attendance to sign autographs and meet with fans. The Keys (the Orioles minor league affiliate) are playing the Potomac Nationals (the Nats’ minor league affiliate) that night and there’ll be fireworks after the game . Finally, and this is the best part, RMNB’s Pat Holden has been invited to play in the media game too. And he’s not on my team, setting up the ultimate RMNB GRUDGE MATCH.
The media game is open to the public and begins promptly at 3pm and ends at 5pm. To be able to watch me yell mean things at Pat and hit homers against his team, all you need is a ticket for that night’s Keys game which you can buy right here. I would really love
to see you guys there witnesses to see Pat’s beating and I’ll definitely hang out after the game is over. Just tweet at me or yell at me to come over and I’ll say hi.
Here’s the address:
Nymeo Field at Harry Grove Stadium
21 Stadium Drive
Frederick, MD 21703
Pat, I hope you’re ready to be humbled.
