Sports Saturday: Baltimore Orioles

April 9th, 2011 by mjwilliams2

The baseball gods must have been looking out for Marylanders on opening day at Camden Yards, as gorgeous weather graced Birdland, allowing the Orioles to defeat the Tigers 5-1. With a current record of 4-0, things seem to be looking up for the Birds, however; it is way too early in the season to get a little cocky. That’s why the Orioles need all the support they can get, as devoted fans are the ones that carry them on towards even more victories. Come down on April 18th to cheer on the Orioles as they return home to take on Minnesota. The game starts at 7:05pm, but we all know the crowd will gather at Pickles way earlier than that. Get your ticket, throw on some orange, and start screaming at the top of your lungs. Let’s keep this going Orioles! Read the rest of this entry »
