How would you rate the hospitality offered to fans of the opposing team?
What is the worst incident you've witnessed against an opposing fan or yourself?
"It is usually the opposing fans against us. Red Sox and Yankees fan take over the stadium 40-60 percent. It doesn't help that we have been bad for 10 years now."
"Arrogance by Boston or NY fans."
"Unfortunately, we O's fans are normally outnumbered by the NY and Boston fans in our own stadium. We have to sit there and hope that they don't start bullying us!"
"Orioles fans, at times, are told to sit down when cheering for their team. Enough said."
"The reason the above answer is excellent is because the Red Sox and Yankees dominate our park every game. When you're standing in the concession line and you hear the crowd roar, it means the other team just scored. Orioles' Bbaseball: it's fantastic."
How would you rate the quality of the promotions/giveaways offered by the home team?
What is the best promotion/giveaway your team has offered? What is the worst? What is a promotion you'd like to see?
"The $5 college student night is always great."
"My favorite giveaway would have to be the Cal Ripken 2,131 bobblehead, because Ripken is a hometown hero. The worst giveaway would have to be the schedule magnets because they are worthless. I would like to see the Orioles give away rally towels so the fans can wave around to get pumped up."
"The Tuesday night home games feature $8 upper deck seats, and sometimes they give out free T-shirts on these nights too. That's a great deal! The worst promotion I recall was 'Fan Appreciation Night." They advertised $1 hot dogs and $1 sodas. What they didn't tell us ahead of time is that the soda and hot dogs were much smaller than the regular ones, so I don't konw that we were getting much of a deal. I thought that was an insulting way to show 'appreciation' to the fans."
"Miguel Tejada Used Syringe Night was cool. I didn't like the black Brian Roberts bobblehead, which eventually was canceled. They should do all-you-can-eat pancakes."
