Turns out, when Amanda announced her sudden departure from acting last week -- she broke the hearts of her biggest fans ... a Class AA baseball team in Maryland called the Bowie Baysox.

So, to honor their retired hero, the team put together a "Farewell Amanda" blowout ... which included Bynes-themed games -- like "Big Fat Liar" trivia and a "She's the Man" cross-dressing challenge.

They also played clips from movies, made t-shirts, and signs ... but most importantly -- FREE CAKE!!

I'm glad she made so much money from "All That" to support herself for the rest of her life. :/

I think it was Sean Connery that said "You don't retire from acting, acting Retires you!" Hence, she made a few ****ty remakes of some classic movies and now she can't any work.

Don't you have to be actively employed before you can retire? Maybe she is announcing that she retired a few years ago.

I live down the street from the bowie stadium. This story is so random.

I've lived in Bowie all my life and I can't remember the Baysox ever doing something so random. Weird...

Oh man, If I am ever famous, I hope that on my Behind the Music they mention that my first job was at Bowie Baysox and that I used to give people free beer and smoke doobies.

Thanks TMZ, for reminding of how awesome it was before we were adults and had bills to pay.

I always liked Amanda. Then I read her twitter page. She's a genuine idiot. As a comedic actress she was always seemed willing to commit to the stupidity - which is crucial to comedic success and a rare ability. Turns out it was her natural state rather than an act of intentioned commitment. There's no real talent in that. Just show up on time and act like you always do and try to hit your mark. Unlike Lindsay, at least Amanda knew to show up on time. Oh well, so long Amanda, we hardly knew you.
