BALTIMORE (WJZ) – It’s that time of year again where weather and baseball join together for a double play of fun for area students.
WJZ’s First Warning Weather Team, MASN and the Baltimore Orioles joined forces again for a fun-filled day of learning about weather and baseball at the 5th Annual Weather/Field Trip Day at Oriole Park at Camden Yards.
Tim Williams reports.
The weather presentation began at 10 a.m. Wednesday. The Orioles took on the Boston Red Sox but lost the game 6-5.
Bob Turk and meteorologists Bernadette Woods and Tim Williams talked about clouds, jet stream, severe weather, winter weather and hurricanes. The topic of the presentation is “How Weather Affects Us.”
Chris Strong from the National Weather Service, Lee Billingsley from The Maryland Science Center and Nicole Sherry, head groundskeeper of the Orioles, also participated.
“Weather Day is just a really fun day where the kids come down to the ballpark. We talk about the main subjects of weather. We add a little fun in. We bring in the National Weather Service, we bring in the Maryland Science Center, and they get to watch a game afterwards,” said Woods.
It’s a day full of fun with valuable safety lessons learned.
More than 6,000 students, teachers and parents attended Weather Day. Most are from Maryland, but some came from Delaware and Pennsylvania for this day of baseball and weather.
