Orioles Having Some Sort of Game of Thrones Night/Package (Update)

Winter is Here

The Orioles’ season is going nowhere fast, and we’re all just waiting to see if they’ll start selling off players here in the next few days. Losing (badly) and trading some of your best players is a sure-fire way to end up with a whole lotta empty seats at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.

Fortunately, it looks like the fine folks in the Birds’ marketing department are hitting dingers, even if some of Baltimore’s other employees aren’t:

They say that more info is coming soon. For now all we know is this:

1. “Winter is Here” night is August 22

2. Somebody at MLB Advanced Media deserves a raise for this video

3. There is a ticket package involved

Hey, if your team isn’t very entertaining, why not glom onto one of the most hyped-up programs in all of the entertainment world? I give the O’s big ups for this promotion. I already have tickets for August 22, of course, so maybe I’ll be moving them back a night.

There isn’t much info here now, but check out Orioles.com/GameofThrones periodically for more.

Our friends over at Bird’s Eye View have done a Game of Thrones Orioles post in the past, and it’s worth your time to go look at their creative works.

Update 7/20: They’ve released some more details, and this got interesting quickly:

The Game of Thrones® ticket package includes an exclusive bullpen pregame party, plus each fan will receive a limited Adam Jones: The Watcher on the Wall t-shirt and a chance to sit on the Iron Throne. Tickets are $65 for left field lower box and $45 for left field upper box.

You can sit on the darn Iron Throne! They have a picture of it and everything:

AND, you get this sweet Adam Jones shirt:
