BaySox to be featured on Ditry Jobs, Tues. 1/30

The Bowie Baysox, Class AA Affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles, will be featured on an upcoming episode of the hit Discovery Channel Show "Dirty Jobs" hosted by Baltimore native Mike Rowe. The show has been scheduled to air on The Discovery Channel on Tuesday, Jan. 30 at 9 p.m.
"Dirty Jobs" host and Baltimore native Mike Rowe, was put to the test by the Baysox on Friday, Aug. 25, 2006 as the Bowie Baysox hosted the New Hampshire Fisher Cats in a double header. Discovery Channel's #1 rated show, "Dirty Jobs," cast and crew spent nearly 14 hours at Prince George's Stadium capturing all of the action for this episode.

Show host Mike Rowe will be seen doing a variety of different jobs including; mowing the outfield grass, assisting the Grounds Crew in preparing the infield dirt and warning track for play, washing players uniforms and cleaning their shoes, learning the basics of stealing bases, learning the art of hitting a baseball in the batting cages from Baysox Hitting Coach Moe Hill and even singing the National Anthem. Rowe's 14-hour day with the Baysox was capped off with a well earned and relaxing dip in the clubhouse whirlpool. All of Rowe's grueling tasks will come to fruition in an episode titled "Well Digger" on Tuesday, Jan. 30.

The Baysox segment will run for approximately two-thirds of the all-new hour long episode, with the other parts consisting of Rowe drilling a water well in Tennessee and a short mailbag segment.

"This type of national exposure is certainly a big deal for the Baysox and the city of Bowie" said Brian Shallcross, Baysox General Manager. "We want to thank the Discovery Channel and the crew, for featuring us on their show and we are excited to see what the episode will consist of. We are counting down the days until the 30th."

This is the second time the Baysox have been featured on a cable television show. In May 2004, the Baysox were featured by NBC Today's weatherman Al Roker for his show on the Food Network show, "Roker on the Road."

The Bowie Baysox will begin their 15th season as the Class AA Affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles on Thursday, April 12 at 7:05 p.m. versus the Akron Aeros at Prince George's Stadium in Bowie, MD. Season and Partial Season Ticket Packages are now available for the 2007 season and start at just $66. Fans can log on to the Baysox official website at Bowie Baysox or call (301) 805-6000 for all Baysox news and ticket information.
