Candy drops aren’t new to minor league baseball, but they’re new to Frederick.

And any chance I can share photos of helicopters dropping more than 100 pounds of candy onto a baseball field, I’m going to take it.

Here, then, is a helicopter dropping more than 100 pounds of candy onto a baseball field Sunday in Frederick. “A cargo of goodies,” as the team put it. Free candy for kids is always a good thing, even if the candy in question seemed to be of the low-rent variety. Guess you can’t really drop chocolate bars onto a baseball field on a sunny Sunday afternoon.
