There will be special appearances by Captain Fear, Buccaneers cheerleaders and current players. Fun-filled birthday gift bags will be distributed to each Bucs Baby. There will be face painters, games for the family, entertainment and a coloring station. A photo booth complete with props will be onsite offering attendees a special photo opportunity to commemorate the day. Brunch will be served and, of course, there will be cake!

The ‘Bucs Babies’ program continues to grow and evolve into a success in the Tampa Bay community," said Brian Ford, Buccaneers Chief Operating Officer.

Florida Hospital drafted a new round of recruits this year, who all received a "rookie training kit" to take home from the hospital which included a Buccaneers backpack filled with a "Bucs Babies" plush blanket, bib and baby hat, as well as a Buccaneers birth certificate, and four tickets to a 2018 pre-season game. The kit also included baby necessities like shampoo, lotion, and wipes, courtesy of Publix. We’ll see those babies at our party next year!
