Orioles to host Autism Awareness Night Saturday, April 12

From the Orioles…


The Orioles and Major League Baseball are partnering with Autism Speaks to recognize April as National Autism Awareness Month, with the Orioles hosting Autism Awareness Night on Saturday, April 12.

Discounted Upper Reserve tickets are available for purchase at www.orioles.com/tix/autism. $5 of every ticket sold through this website will benefit Autism Speaks, an organization dedicated to funding research into the causes, prevention, treatments and a cure for autism; increasing awareness of autism spectrum disorders; and advocating for the needs of individuals with autism and their families.

The following elements will also take place in recognition of Autism Awareness Night on April 12 at Oriole Park:

•Quiet Room: Families looking to get some reprieve for a few innings can go to Suite 73. Families can still watch the game from this area, but in a quieter, climate-controlled suite.

•Pre-game Ceremonies: Prior to the game, the Orioles will recognize children diagnosed with Autism who have been great ambassadors for autism awareness.

•Information Booth: For more information on Autism Speaks, stop by the Orioles Community Booth inside of Gate D to learn more about autism, Autism Speaks, and resources available in our community.
