Maryland basketball coaches Mark Turgeon and Brenda Frese will both appear at an event hosted by the Babe Ruth Birthplace Foundation at Michael’s Eighth Avenue in Glen Burnie on Oct. 9 from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., the foundation announced.

Tickets to the event, dubbed “An Evening with Mark Turgeon and Brenda Frese,” are $45.00 for an individual or $40 each for a 10-person table. Interested parties can e-mail or call 410-727-1539, according to a press release.

Just days before Maryland Madness kicks off at 7 p.m. on Oct. 12, there will be a meet-and-greet with the two Terps coaches, “a very special door prize” — which I can only assume is a dinner with Alex Len at Boston Market — and a menu including pit beef and ham, fried chicken, hot dogs and burgers. The coaches are scheduled to “discuss Terps’ upcoming season, new recruits and experiences at Maryland.”
