Baltimore Comic-Con is this weekend, and as usual, the Orioles are at home, but this time, the con is crossing over, as Jim Lee will throw out the first pitch at Friday night’s game.
Comic book super star, Jim Lee, will help kick off the 9th annual Baltimore Comic-Con at Oriole Park at Camden Yards Friday, September 26th. Jim will throw out the first pitch before the Orioles meet the Toronto Blue Jays and then sign autograghs for fans at the ballpark to help awareness for the weekend convention next door.
“We know how well he can draw Batman — let’s see if he can throw a strike,” promoter Marc Nathan said.
Fans for the convention can witness this themselves, as the Orioles are offering a discounted group rate for visitors coming into town for the Baltimore Comic-Con. Tickets begin as low at $8 for both Friday and Saturday nights’ games.
On Friday night, the game will begin at 7:05pm, so fans who wish to see Jim deliver that first pitch should be in their seats 20 minutes ahead of time, at 6:45pm.
“The Orioles recognize how many people come to our event downtown,” continued Marc, “and they wanted to enhance everyone’s experience. All you have to do is mention that you are with the Baltimore Comic-Con group, and the discounts will apply. They have also made an easy-to-fill-out form to help chose which kind of seat you prefer.”
Please go to Gate “H”, the Orioles Main Box Office, to present your completed form. See our website for more details about the event and the show, and for copies of the form – http://www.baltimorecomiccon.com/.
There will be fireworks at the end of Friday’s game to celebrate the weekend.
