Sports Saturdays: The Last Stand for the Baltimore Orioles
September 29th, 2012 by Anthony Santiago
As the MLB season comes to a close soon, the Orioles are looking to extend their time at Oriole Park just a little longer. This weekend, the Orioles will be playing Division Rival Boston Red Sox.
Currently, the Orioles are in the heat of it all by being a game and a half back from the New York Yankees for first place in the American League East.
This homestead follows an incredible week for the Birds. They won six straight in a row in extra innings. The heart and fight that the players are giving happen to be so enduring for Baltimore natives and Oriole fans who have not had the opportunity to see a postseason game in more than 5 years.
This weekend will be an emotional one as it is fan appreciation weekend. Different festivies and events will be held at Oriole Park. For instance, Saturday, Loyola Senior’s and parents can go watch the Red Sox game and be in a dug out suite for 35 dollars.
But, just the experience of being in Bird country with the season slowly coming to an end will be endearing.
So what is your excuse? Why won’t you be downtown? Oh, you will? Great. See you there
