The team is proud to welcome the entire Plebe class of the U.S. Naval Academy for the event. The class consists of approximately 1,245 men and women from all 50 states and nine different countries who are currently in the middle of a six week training period, preparing for life at the Academy.
Baysox Assistant General Manager Phil Wrye works with the Navy on the event. “We appreciate and welcome all branches of the armed forces,” Wrye said. “But we have a special relationship with the Navy. With the Academy so close to our stadium and a number of Naval bases in our region, we have built an outstanding rapport over the years. We really enjoy having the entire Plebe class visit the stadium.”
The Academy is located in Annapolis, Md., approximately 14 miles from the stadium. This year marks the 11th anniversary of Navy Night at Prince George’s Stadium.
