The Delmarva Shorebirds announced their 2021 schedule earlier today, featuring 60 home games at Arthur W. Perdue Stadium, with Opening Night slated for Tuesday, May 4.
Earlier this year, the Shorebirds accepted the Baltimore Orioles invitation to remain their Low-A affiliate and will play in the North Division of the newly constructed Low-A East League. The Baby Birds will play 120 total games this season.
The Low-A East League will consist of 12 teams evenly divided into three divisions, with seven teams serving as first-time opponents with no previous head-to-head meetings with the Shorebirds.
Shorebirds GM Chris Bitters says he’s excited for the opportunity to stay a part of the Orioles organization.
“We have enjoyed a terrific partnership with the Orioles for the past 25 years and we are excited to continue to help develop the O’s stars of tomorrow on their journey to Camden Yards. Every year, the Orioles provide first-class talent on and off the field and we look forward to continuing to create fun, affordable, family entertainment, while helping grow our Delmarva community.”Shorebirds GM Chris Bitters
