The Orioles invite fans to celebrate the start of Spring Training at Sarasota SpringFest, a free, family-friendly event for fans of all ages. Along with watching Orioles pitchers and catchers practice on the back fields, fans can also enjoy games and interactive activities in the stadium. The event will feature a question and answer session with Orioles outfielder Cedric Mullins at approximately 12:30 p.m. Fans will once again have opportunities to play catch on the Ed Smith Stadium field, take a behind-the-scenes tour of the ballpark, and participate in a “Pitch for Charity” event to benefit Miracle League of Manasota, scheduled for approximately 12:00 p.m. at the Left Field Pavilion.
