#HaveACatch – Get outside and play catch!

Expanding upon Major League Baseball's successful PLAY BALL campaign, the Orioles launched the Have A Catch campaign, a new program designed to encourage children, and fans of all ages, to go outside and enjoy a game of catch.

The Orioles hosted a week-long series of 'Have A Catch' events with local youth organizations including Baltimore City Public Schools, KidsPeace, the Y of Central Maryland, and Buddies, Inc.

At each event, children had an opportunity to have a catch with special guests including The Oriole Bird, Orioles players, Orioles Alumni, Orioles ballboys and ballgirls, Oriole Advocates, and/or Orioles staff from the Orioles On Deck Employee Volunteer Program, presented by Bank of America.
