WHAT: Babe's Birthday Bash, a celebration of the birthday of arguably the greatest baseball player of all time.
WHO: Presented by The Babe Ruth Museum
WHERE: Sports Legends Museum at Camden Yards
BACKGROUND: Fans will have the opportunity to mingle with some of their favorite Baltimore sports personalities on February 8th as the Babe Ruth Museum celebrates the 113th birthday of baseball's greatest star, Baltimore native George Herman "Babe" Ruth.
The event will feature admission to Sports Legends Museum at Camden Yards; unlimited food and beverage; free parking at Camden Yards; a silent auction of unique sports memorabilia and a free tour of Geppi's Entertainment Museum. In addition, the event will mark the grand opening of Sports Legends Museum's newest exhibit entitled "Framing the Game: the Art of Our Sports," which will feature a variety of local and national subjects and artists. Personalities confirmed to appear at this time are former Orioles Chris Hoiles, Ron Hansen, Joe Orsulak, and John Stefero, as well as former Baltimore Colts Lenny Moore, John Mackey, Mike Curtis, Jim Mutscheller, Doug Eggers, Tom Matte, Howard Stevens, Rick Volk and Stan White.
The Museum will also present the second annual Babe Ruth Museum Community Service Award to Baltimore Orioles' second baseman Brian Roberts for his work with the University of Maryland Hospital for Children (UHMC). Due to a previous commitment, Roberts will not be in attendance to receive the award but a member of the Orioles' front office staff will be on hand to accept the award on his behalf. The award is bestowed to an active or former professional athlete, or individual with ties to the Maryland sports industry, who demonstrates a strong devotion to the City of Baltimore and State of Maryland by giving back to his or her community.
As an added bonus, members of the Babe Ruth Museum will be invited to take an exclusive "white-glove" tour of the archives at Sports Legends Museum.
