Commemorate a birthday or anniversary by displaying your special someone's name on the Oriole Park scoreboard as part of our Scoreboard Surprises during an Orioles home game! Scoreboard Surprises can now be purchased online for a $35 donation to the Orioles Charitable Foundation.
(Payment must be made prior to announcement. Your credit card will be charged upon approval of the message.)
Your message will be displayed on Oriole Park's Scoreboard between the sixth and eighth innings during breaks. Scoreboard Surprises are run in groups of 4 names per board in age order from youngest to oldest with no age listed displayed at the end. Anniversaries are run in the same order after all the Birthday messages. The Orioles also offer a small quantity of "solo" boards for $75 for each game that are available by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or calling 888-848-2473.
Your Scoreboard Surprise will consist ONLY of the Birthday celebrant's first and last name or an Anniversary couple's first and last names, and, optionally, their age or year of anniversary. No additional messaging including nicknames, proposals, or retirement announcements is permitted, and messages cannot be used for commercial purposes. Any information that is obscene, offensive, includes foul language or refers negatively to any other Major League Baseball player or organization will be not accepted. Messages may be edited to conform with required format.
Scoreboard Surprise requests must be submitted at least 48 hours prior to the start of the game.
There is a limited number of 20 Scoreboard Surprises available for online order each game. Space is limited, so order your Scoreboard Surprise today.
Orders will be processed in the order in which they are received, and will be taken on a first-come, first-served basis. If your desired game is not listed, and it is more than 48 hours from the start time of the desired game, please email email@example.com, or call 888-848-BIRD. You will receive e-mail confirmation shortly after the close of the submission period to confirm your order.
Messages may be up to twenty five (25) characters long, including spaces and punctuation.
