Bell Biv DeVoe Tossing Ceremonial First Pitches on May 29

The Ticket Operations Department has a line drawn through it. People under 30-years-old and people 30-and-over. Those in the former aren’t familiar with Bell Biv DeVoe. Those in the latter are coming to work on their off day to see the first pitch. BBD, members of New Edition (also featuring Bobby Brown plus others), hit makers of such New Jack Swing hits “Poison” and “Gangsta,” are scheduled to throw out the ceremonial first pitches on Sunday, May 29 before the A’s host the Baltimore Orioles.   

Younger colleagues understood the fascination a little better when it was revealed that Michael “Biv” Bivins found and produced the chart-topping foursome Boys II Men. In the song “Motown Philly” Michael Bivins has two speaking interludes and all three BBD members appear in the video as part of the East Coast Family. “BBD” is even mentioned a few times in the song.

So now, our slightly younger friends, are you excited for Bell Biv DeVoe tossing the ceremonial first pitches on Sunday, May 29? The 30-and-over crowd couldn’t be more so. See you at the Coliseum about 12:45 p.m. on Sunday!
